Teacher Training : Court Moor Partnership

We are currently unable to invite visitors into school for lesson observations but hope to be able to do so from September onwards, subject to the lifting of Covid-related restrictions. Please use the link below to register your interest and we will contact you in the autumn term to arrange a visit.



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.

We are the lead school in the Court Moor Partnership, a new alliance of local education providers, from primary level through to post-16 education, established in order to develop outstanding levels of teacher recruitment in Fleet and the local areas. See what some of our recent trainees had to say about their experience training in Court Moor Partnership schools. 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, Tomlinscote School, Ash Manor School, Aldworth School, Rodborough and Rowhill School. In addition, we work with The Sixth Form College in Farnborough, and HSDC in Alton, who can host trainees who are particularly keen to teach A-level subjects. As a partnership, we 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. We have 15 trainees across the partnership for 2019-20, and have already exceeded that figure  for 2020-21.

We offer information events and School Experience Programme (SEP) days throughout the year. However, due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, schools are not able to welcome visitors, unfortunately. We hope to be able to welcome visitors again soon, but in the meantime, if you are interested in finding out more about teacher training, please email Terry McEnroe (terry.mcenroe@court-moor.hants.sch.uk).
