Train to Teach

The Burnham Teaching Partnership was set up to offer people in the local community and from further afield the opportunity to train to teach in local primary and secondary schools.

As a trainee at one of our schools you will be provided with a personalised training programme that will enable you to develop your knowledge and understanding of how to teach and how to enhance your classroom practice. The successful development of these key attributes over the course of the year will lead to Qualified Teacher Status being awarded, with the possibility of attaining the PGCE as an additional academic qualification.

Training in our partnership offers you the chance to not only attain the PGCE and QTS award and become an excellent classroom teacher, but also the potential to be employed within a partnership school and embark upon an exciting career in teaching within the local area.

Burnham Grammar School  is a high achieving selective  secondary school , which  also has Gold Investors In People status. As the lead school in the partnership we aim to foster outstanding working  relationships with our trainees and our partner schools to ensure the highest quality of Initial Teacher Training provision for our primary and secondary trainee teachers alike.

The Burnham Teaching Partnership has a wide range of schools to train within across South Buckinghamshire and Slough.

Applicants, if successful, will have the chance to work with bright students within either a grammar or comprehensive school settings, or help nurture pupils at the start of their education within one of the partnership primary schools.
As a School Direct Partnership we are affiliated with the University of Reading to deliver our PGCE and QTS only courses. We have worked closely and successfully with the University for many years in training teachers, many of which now work in our partnership schools. The video below will give you an insight into what we can offer you.
Each of the schools are within close proximity of the M4 and M40 motorways as well as walking distance from future Crossrail railway line stations.
