What is Sutton Secondary Teaching School Alliance?

The purpose of the Sutton Secondary Teaching School Alliance is to jointly develop best practice to develop Outstanding teachers within the Sutton Alliance. This gives trainees the best opportunity to develop specific expertise and understanding of the needs and requirements of schools within the Sutton LA.

As a training school within the Alliance we have a long history of training teachers. We are an Outstanding School and for the past two years we have had recognition for being in the top 100 schools nationally. In addition, Ofsted have ranked St. Philomena's School in the top quintile of key performance measures (Ofsted Data Dashboard).

The English Subject Studies Hub

St. Philomena's School is the Hub School for English Subject Studies. As one of the Hub Schools within the Alliance we are responsible for the subject specific pedagogical training and development of English SCITT and School Direct Trainees. Since the development of the Sutton SCITT the trainees have successfully secured teaching jobs across the Alliance including at Cheam High, St. Philomena's School, Blenheim High School, Stanley Park High School, Glenthorne High School, Greenshaw High School, Carshalton Boys Sports College and Wallington High School. 

 

The Geography Subject Studies Hub

St. Philomena's School will be the Hub School for Geography Subject Studies from September 2018. As one of the Hub Schools within the Alliance we are responsible for the subject specific pedagogical training and development of Geography SCITT Trainees. The course will enable trainees to create and develop a relevant and engaging geographical education for students and to connect with a well-established wider professional community of geography teachers, academics and other professionals in geography related areas of work. The Geography Hub will provide a strong professional foundation for a career in geography education.

Routes into teaching

 

Core SCITT Programme

Core SCITT is an entirely school based course providing practical training underpinned by theoretical taught subject and professional studies sessions leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). In addition, you will complete two written assignments with our partner HEI, UCL Institute of Education which will enable you to achieve a PGCE (worth 60 credits towards your Master’s degree).

 

School Direct Salaried

Sutton SCITT offer a limited number of School Direct Salaried places in priority secondary subjects, leading to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). This route is open to graduates with at least 3 years experience in the workplace.

Trainees on the School Direct Salaried programme will be employed directly by a school for the duration of their training and will not necessarily be 'supernumerary', i.e. they may be required to teach a timetable from the outset.
