TandL Team

We can offer you:

  1. Outstanding mentors and full support throughout your teacher training.
  2. Bespoke weekly pedagogical and subject training in school.
  3. A second placement in a contrasting school environment.

Myton School is committed to recruiting and training enthusiastic individuals who are passionate about becoming outstanding teachers. We take trainees from a number of different providers but enjoy a particularly close relationship with our strategic partners: the University of Worcester and the University of Warwick. Our Initial Teacher Training provision was identified as ‘outstanding’ by Warwick University.

We are a dedicated and supportive team, able to assist from application to NQT year. During your training you will have specialist help from our mentors to develop your practical skills in the classroom and your theoretical understanding.

“Great professional mentor, positive, supportive atmosphere where I felt really able to stretch myself.” – A former PGCE student

Myton School is part of two partnerships: The Griffin Teaching School (Lawrence Sheriff School and Kenilworth School).
