QTS (qualified teacher status) allows you to teach in state schools in England.

It may also allow you to teach in the EU, the EEA and Switzerland. You should check with the institution you’d like to teach in for confirmation. The status of QTS in these countries may change after the UK leaves the EU. Please check GOV.UK for updates.

To teach in the rest of the UK or internationally, you may wish to consider a ‘PGCE (or PGDE) with QTS’ qualification instead.

About the training provider

At Featherstone High School, our students continue to achieve excellent GCSE results and we are regularly placed in the top 10% of schools in the country for progress they make. Our Sixth Form was placed in the top 5% of schools in the country for progress made between GCSE and A levels last year. This exceptional performance has allowed increasing numbers of students to attend some of the top universities in the country.

Featherstone High School is a warm and hardworking community striving for excellence in all we do. We want children to leave school having maximised their academic progress but also to really enjoy learning.

Featherstone High is one of a small number of schools nationally to have been approved by the DfE as a “Sponsor.” This special status means we are able to access government grants to provide support to other

schools. In addition, we are one of very few schools nationally that have recently been awarded the Platinum award for Continuous Professional Development (CPD) for the highly effective CPD and training of staff across all levels of the school. We value professional development as a key component to ensure highly effective teaching and learning to give students a rich and rewarding education, filled with exciting and unique possibilities. Our investment in CPD and highly effective teacher training has resulted in outstanding teaching and learning by inspirational teachers who are motivated and passionate about their subjects. Students, irrespective of ability, are stretched and supported with their achievements celebrated.

Training with disabilities and other needs

Our aim is to know each child well in order to support and guide them

so that they make good progress. We have a team dedicated to each year

group in the school and they are the primary provider of pastoral care

and guidance. At Featherstone we strongly believe that every student

should be sufficiently challenged and supported to achieve their very

best and that their successes are celebrated.

Students with additional needs are identified early, taught in small classes and supported by a full-time teaching assistant in class. There

is also a team of learning mentors who support those with social issues

that are affecting their learning. Students receive careers advice

and guidance as they progress up key stage 3 (Years 7 and 8) to 4 (Years 9 to 11) and eventually 5 (6th form) through our extensive careers

education programme, small group tutorials and access to independent

and impartial connexions advice.

Our Student Services department allows continuous support for all students throughout the day for issues relating to medical, social and emotional Well-Being related issues. We have a team of trained First Aiders, Mental Health aiders, a school nurse and a school counselor who are always on hand to support all student needs.
