We are proud to be part of the Polaris Teaching School Alliance, working in partnership with York Saint John University to offer Primary teacher training places on the 2021-2022 School Direct Programme.

More details about the programme can be found at the Polaris website:
Our School Direct programme is a full-time course from September until June, leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and PGCE. The majority of training is undertaken in the classroom with experienced teachers. Our trainees also receive professional development and curriculum training from Polaris specialist leaders at our hub in Malton and tutors at York St John University. In school, trainees progress from observing teachers and other school professionals to teaching 80% of the time by the end of the programme.
Entry Requirements for the Polaris School Direct Programme 2021-22
- You need to be a graduate, ideally with a 2:2 or above, although consideration will be given to students with a lower classification who can demonstrate a commitment to children’s learning and development.
- We welcome graduates from a range of backgrounds, but will expect students to have had recent relevant experience with young children.
- You should have GCSEs in maths, English and science grade C or above. Equivalency tests are available if you don’t have these.
- We will be looking for high-calibre students who can demonstrate real passion and commitment to teaching, students who are resilient and resourceful, creative, hard working and who show a willingness to learn and reflect on their own development.
