School Direct

Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar School is working alongside Christchurch University to offer teacher training through the ‘School Direct’ scheme. We are offering salaried and unsalaried positions into teaching via the School Direct route.

School Direct will gain you QTS status only but you are able to do a PGCE Top Up qualification during the year with us.

The schools in the alliance who are currently offering School Direct primary qualifications (2019-2020) are Bridge & Patrixbourne, Wickhambreaux, Hampton, and Littlebourne Primary. Secondary places are offered by Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar School, SLBS and the Archbishop’s School across a number of different subject areas.

At Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar School we have had 100% success rate with our School Direct trainees with all securing teaching jobs in Kent and beyond at the end of their training year.  Such is the success of the School Direct training scheme that the number of applications received continues to grow year on year.

Vacancies for 2019-20 will be published shortly. Applications can be made once UCAS goes live.









All applications must be made through the UCAS website only. No application will be accepted if sent directly to any of the alliance schools.
