School Experience Programme

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are currently unable to offer school experience to PGCE applicants. We hope to be able to reinstate in-school visits soon. If you would like to be considered for a school experience day please email your details to:

If you’re interested in becoming a teacher, getting some classroom experience is essential in helping you to decide whether teaching is right for you. It will also strengthen your application and prepare you for potential interviews.

  • Experience daily life in a primary or secondary school
  • Observe dynamic lessons taught by outstanding teachers
  • Find out more about our School Direct PGCE programmes

We’re happy to arrange for you to spend a day at St John’s Marlborough (Secondary) or a primary school in the Marlborough area.

To request a place on our school experience programme, email us at with your contact details and what you’re interested in teaching.

With effect from 1st September 2021, Excalibur Teaching School Alliance ceases to exist in its current format. We will continue to offer CPD and ITT and we are working with the Swindon and Wiltshire Teaching School Hub as a Lead Partner to support the delivery of the Early Careers Framework (Secondary) and the delivery of the new suite of National Professional Qualifications.
