About the training provider
Bennett Memorial Diocesan School is a Church of England School, academically highly successful which sets great store in the development of character and values. Now one of the largest schools in West Kent Bennett has become one of the highest achieving state schools in the country attracting students from across Sussex and West Kent. The school is consistently ranked within the top 10% of schools nationally for the progress students make at GCSE.
The success of our students is due to the high quality teaching that they receive. By training with us you will learn alongside those expert teachers.
The school has a long track record of training teachers successfully. The vast majority of trainee teachers who complete their training with us are graded as 'outstanding' and we have a 100% employment rate post training.
Bennett is also a designated Teaching School and is the founding school of Teach Kent & Sussex. We therefore can draw upon considerable teaching and leadership expertise to help you grow and flourish as a new teacher.
As a Teaching School Bennett leads a partnership of secondary schools in Kent & Sussex who work with us to train teachers. Therefore, in applying to us you may also train in one of those schools as well as or instead of Bennett. They are Beacon Academy (Crowborough), St Gregory's Catholic School, Skinners' Kent Academy (both Tunbridge Wells), Trinity School (Sevenoaks), Uplands Community College, Heathfield Community College and Uckfield College.
About the accredited body
Teach Kent & Sussex was founded at Bennett Memorial School and retains that link in its administrative and leadership hub at the school.
Teach Kent & Sussex works with a range of primary and secondary schools across West Kent and East Sussex to provide highly effective teacher training. This can be seen through their outcomes for 2018 in which all trainee teachers passed with at least a grade 'good' with just over seventy per cent being awarded an 'outstanding' grade. All trainee teachers with Teach Kent & Sussex have secured employment as teachers on completion of their training.
Training with disabilities and other needs
We wish to ensure that every candidate can show their potential to become a great teacher. We therefore work closely with candidates who declare a disability or additional need to ensure that reasonable adjustments are made at interview in order to ensure that all candidates have an equal chance to show their potential to teach.
If offered a place to train to teach we agree with you an independent support plan which is reviewed on a termly or more frequent basis if necessary. This helps to ensure that our provision is the best it can be. Such reviews have shown to be helpful and effective in the past and are an essential part of our provision.
