School Direct Graduates Celebrate Success

Congratulations to our 2016-17 School Direct Trainees who graduated at Leeds Trinity University Wednesday 19 September 2017.  Thanks to all their year's hard work and dedication the entire cohort consistently achieved the highest grades, with 6 out of 8 achieving a final grade of 1 and 2 out of 8 achieving 2, the highest grades you can receive.  Special mention must go to both Sophie Mickelthwaite and Sarah Collins who were nominated for the PGCE Primary School Direct prize.  Sarah eventually carried off the honors, but it must be said that the whole group deserve the highest praise for all their industry and talent shown throughout the year.


After what we hope will be a happy and relaxing summer, all the trainees will be starting their NQT year this autumn; , the first stage of their journey through the exciting and rewarding career of the Primary School Teacher.  We wish them every success and look forward to hearing great things about all of them in the future.
