About the training provider

The Gladesmore Community School Direct Partnership offers incredible opportunities for working and learning. It provides an ideal school based learning opportunity within excellent schools to train as a teacher. This inspirational partnership comprises thirty three schools, The Hub for Sport and Physical Education @ Kingston University and Middlesex University.

We have a straightforward and powerful vision:

to provide an outstanding all round education where all students make impressive progress in a positive, friendly, family community atmosphere.

Thus, we create an environment in which staff, pupils and trainee teachers alike feel valued and supported. We have worked with trainee teachers for many years and we fully appreciate how their vibrancy, enthusiasm and drive contribute to the school community.

Our school partnership is led by Gladesmore Community School, an outstanding school, and comprises a strong combination of urban schools serving catchment areas in different contexts.

As a partnership we provide a particular opportunity to experience a diverse and contrasting range of teaching and training experiences across a mixture of urban schools serving catchment areas in different contexts.

Students in all our schools are happy, friendly and well-behaved and are at the heart of everything we do. Both staff and students are ambitious and confident. Many consistently out-perform their national peers and make significantly more progress.
