School Direct Update


We welcomed our new cohort of School Direct trainees into school this week across a range of subject specialisms. The energy and enthusiasm in the early training and induction sessions has been infectious. We look forward to their contribution and support to the development and progress of our students.


We are now looking to 2017 recruitment. We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in our bid for teacher training places for 2017/2018 across primary and a range of subjects in secondary education. The application process for trainees will be through as in previous years and we understand that this will open on 18th October.


If you know anyone who is looking at teacher training options for September 2017, please direct them to our website. We are building a good history of working successfully as the Diocese of Leeds BKCAT Alliance and we enjoy strong outcomes and employment statistics.


We will keep our website updated with details of recruitment fairs being held locally – the first of which is in Leeds on 15th October. We also have information available at school open evenings, parent evenings and open days. Alternatively you can contact Jane Ball ( for an informal chat or for further information.
