About the training provider

Malcolm Sargent Primary is a large and vibrant school in the pleasant Georgian town of Stamford, offering a tremendous team ethos, in a friendly, dynamic and supportive school environment.

Being a large school enables us to provide opportunities to learn from a broad base of expertise in the school, and be supported not only by a mentor, but also through working alongside year group teams.

We pride ourselves on our excellent standards of education for children, and training for staff. We have been training teachers for over 10 years, and have an excellent track record in developing our students to at least a 'good' standard by the end of their time with us, (92% of our students have completed their courses with us a good or better over this time).

We are also eager to offer training and support to promote future employ-ability, with a broad range of opportunities to train in, and flexibility to work with students on any particular interests they may wish to pursue within our Primary age range.

Trainee teachers working at the school. or within the local cluster of schools, are seen very much as part of the team from their first day training and we are committed to providing the very best development through our bespoke training and team support.

About the accredited body

Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) in partnership with Malcolm Sargent Cluster, offers excellent support and accreditation, teaching students 1 day a week on the basic principals and mandatory elements of becoming a teacher and assigning a tutor to support development.

The teaching at the university has been awarded the highest possible rating in the first ever Government-led Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) assessment, a rating which was awarded to just the top 26% of universities in the UK.

In 8 of the last 10 years BGU have been top nationally for employability and further study one year after graduation.
