at The Mead Teaching School

At The Mead Teaching School, we provide Initial Teacher Training (School Direct) at both primary and secondary level, and were lucky to be awarded funding from the DfE to run training for a small number of trainees specialising in Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

Shaping inspirational teachers…

Do you aspire to be one of tomorrow’s outstanding teachers?  Are you passionate about children’s learning?  Do you have experience working with children in other environments?  If so, we’d love to hear from you to talk about how The Mead Teaching School can guide and support you as you train to be an amazing teacher.  Get in touch and learn how a School Direct place at The Mead can be the first step in an exciting and challenging new career.

What to expect

Our School Direct trainees work within The Mead Academy Trust partner schools.  You will follow either a primary or a secondary school-based PGCE programme, working with outstanding practitioners to develop the rigour, professional knowledge, understanding and skills necessary to become inspirational, creative and purposeful practitioners.  We deliver our high quality training within The Mead Academy Trust, partnership schools and Bath Spa University.
