100% employment as NQTs*

We are delighted to announce that ALL of our 2017/18 cohort of ITT** students have secured employment as NQTs within our cluster of schools. ​ With our support and guidance, they have become creative, confident, engaging teachers and we have enjoyed training each and every one.  Our pupils are very lucky to have them.
