The Excalibur School Direct PGCE Programme
The Excalibur PGCE programme is based at St John’s Marlborough, and runs in partnership with other schools within Excalibur Academies Trust, and a network of other schools in the area. The programme is delivered in partnership with Bath Spa University. Students are based in schools for the academic year, but are registered with the university and are eligible for student finance, bursaries and scholarships. Successful completion of the training leads to the award of QTS and a PGCE.
We offer Secondary PGCE training in a wide range of subjects. The training programme runs from September – June and includes two placements. The application window is open, and we accept applications though the DfE Apply system.
