Base School with Bishop Grosseteste University

Home A-Z Contents List Back to Out & About


We are a designated 'Base School' with Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln as part of the Postgraduate training programme run by the university.  This ensures that we benefit from the input of ambitious and enthusiastic trainees who are anxious to learn from our staff.  Our staff are also able to enjoy the benefit of supporting Initial Teacher Training and reflecting in a constructive way upon what they do in the classroom. 

The following extract is from the Bishop Grosseteste University website where they explain the role of partnership schools.

Our aim is to develop professional and highly skilled teachers and we work closely with our partner schools to meet this aim. A particular strength of the college has always been the opportunity provided by our partner schools to train in contexts that reflect the full range and diversity of the local area and beyond. Our trainees enjoy a high level of tutor support, and the tutors work in tandem with the school mentors to ensure consistency of approach.
