About the training provider

At Princess May Primary School we are committed to ensuring all of our children have the best possible start to their learning journey. We create a safe, welcoming, nurturing environment which fosters a sense of belonging. We are a highly inclusive school. In September 2017 Princess May Primary School received a School for Success Award from the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, which recognises exceptional schools in the capital. Princess May was recognised in the Schools for Success Awards because they have achieved results above the expected rate of progress for significant numbers of pupils, including the disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils.

Princess May is proud to be a Lead School for ‘Schools Direct @ London Met’, with a partnership of schools, and we are now recruiting trainee teachers for September 2019. We specialise in providing PGCE’s in Primary with QTS. Princess May has a long standing involvement and commitment to teacher training, in partnership with London Metropolitan University. Our School Direct route leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and PGCE, which carries 60 Masters Level credits. We offer a blend of school-based experience and university-led learning which ensures a breadth and depth of experience and exposure to a wide range of teaching practices. Students will be part of a school team from the start, based in an identified class with an experienced teacher. Many of our class teachers started their teaching careers as schools direct students themselves, so they have a wealth of experience to offer.
