Partner Schools

The YTCA SCITT is passionate about working with schools who are committed to providing a warm, welcoming, encouraging and professional learning environment for our trainees. We only work with schools whose ethos and vision matches our own in terms of Initial Teacher Training.

The nature of the partnership, and the diverse range of experiences to which our trainees have access, is a key strength of our programme. The diverse range of settings include schools which are: non-denominational, suburban, semi-rural, or have a high percentage of free school meals, SEND pupils and EAL learners.

Each setting in which our trainee teachers learn has unique strengths which they bring to the Partnership enabling our trainee teachers to build a composite approach to become the best teacher that they can be. We work closely with key members of staff at each school to ensure our trainees receive the highest quality training.

Our current partnership schools for 2018-19 include:

  • Minsthorpe Community College
  • Thornhill Community Academy
  • The Snaith School
  • The Dearne ALC
  • The King’s School
  • Airedale Academy
  • Kettlethorpe High School

Feeder primary schools offer an additional experience and provide a context for learning including the transition of pupils from Key Stage 2 into Key Stage 3 and the teaching of phonics, literacy and numeracy.

We will also be working with a range of Enhanced Placement Providers who bring a different dimension to education and enrich the training experience of our trainees.
