Teacher Training at Court Moor

Would you like to train as a teacher? 

Whether it is a career you have always wanted to pursue, or you have just begun to explore teaching as a possible next step, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Court Moor School is a fantastic place to work and trainees are made to feel very welcome.  Existing staff are keen to support and share their experience, as well as to learn from new members of the team.

School-based training gives you hands-on experience alongside academic study, enabling you to develop as a teacher whilst constantly reflecting on the process.  We provide an interesting and rigorous programme of study within school, which complements your academic studies at university.  You will also be mentored by an experienced member of staff.

From 2019, we will be the lead school in the Court Moor Partnership, a new alliance of local primary and secondary schools, established in order to develop outstanding levels of teacher recruitment in Fleet and the local areas. Our primary partners include Heatherside (Junior School and Infant School), Church Crookham Junior School and Tweseldown Infant School; at secondary level, we work with Fernhill School, Wavell School and Rowhill School. As a partnership, we will endeavour to attract large volumes of applicants, and provide high-quality training provision to those who train at any of the schools within our partnership. We offer both PGCE and QTS-only routes, via the University of Reading, which has an exceptional track record in teacher training.

In the summer term of 2018-19, we will hold a number of information events, which are open to anyone who is interested in finding out more about teaching, and which will include advice on bursaries and application criteria. The events will take place on the following dates:

  • Friday 26th April, 1pm
  • Monday 13th May, 4pm
  • Monday 3rd June, 1pm
  • Tuesday 25th June, 9am

You are very welcome to attend one of our information events and to visit the school.  To reserve a place, or for any further information, please contact our ITT Administrator, Arvinder Mankoo, by email (arvinder.mankoo@court-moor.hants.sch.uk) or telephone via reception on 01252 615065.

The Court Moor Partnership is also staging several School Experience Programme (SEP) open days in 2018-19. These are opportunities for potential trainees to spend time in schools observing lessons and speaking to teachers about routes into teaching, getting advice from those in the know. The SEP dates for Court Moor School for the summer term are:

  • Tuesday 7th May
  • Thursday 23rd May
  • Friday 7th June
  • Wednesday 10th July

To find out about SEP dates at our partner schools, please refer to their websites. Please note that it is a legal requirement for visitors to any school to have a valid DBS certificate, which we will be happy to help with, but it can take up to 14 working days to be processed. We strongly advise that you attend an information event at least two weeks in advance of an SEP day, to enable us to complete the DBS process. (You will definitely need to visit the school in advance of an SEP day to provide the relevant documentation.) For more information on the DBS process, please contact Diane Rothwell (diane.rothwell@court-moor.hants.sch.uk).
