ITT Programmes

Our School Direct Initial Teacher Training Programmes

Excalibur Teaching School Alliance offers School Direct Teacher Training through a partnership of Primary and Secondary schools in Bristol, West Berkshire & Wiltshire. We work in collaboration with Bath Spa University and Bristol University to develop and deliver cutting-edge teacher training programmes.

We are based at St John’s Marlborough, Wiltshire, and work in partnership with Bath Spa University to deliver Primary and Secondary PGCE programmes

What makes us special?

Our schools are situated in excellent geographical locations, close to the M4 and with access to the thriving cities of Bristol, Reading and Swindon. This enables us to offer a unique blend of urban and rural educational experiences. Our Marlborough hub offers Primary and Secondary ITT placements as well as the opportunity to experience Key Stage 2/3 cross-phase teaching.

Why choose Excalibur Teaching School Alliance?

We are passionate about the development and training of new teachers within our educational settings. You will be able to learn first-hand from our team of outstanding and experienced teachers and ITT mentors who will support you on your journey to PGCE and QTS status.
