A visit will include a tour of the school as well as giving you the opportunity to ask any questions about the course. This is a great chance for us to get to know you better (and vice-versa), as well as allowing you the chance to gain tips and advice on the actual interview process.
We have kept the visits to specific times when staff will be available, but appreciate that work commitments may prevent you from attending. If you are unable to attend on any of the scheduled dates or times, but would still like to visit the school, please don't hesitate to contact me and I will try to make an alternative arrangement for you.
Below is a selection of information about the School Direct programme with our partnership of schools. We hope you consider applying to our teaching school and look forward to meeting you soon.

As a local partnering school with Leeds Trinity you will receive teaching from university academic staff at Leeds Trinity campus, and receive school based training alongside your mentor and practicing teachers.
The structure for the 20-21 course will feature two University based training days and three school based days in the first half term, followed by three school placements in two contrasting schools throughout the remaining terms.
The course can be financed by Student Loan, dependent on individual circumstances. Extra financial support is sometimes available. The tuition fee is £9,250 a year for postgraduate study with Leeds Trinity.
