Heronsgate Teaching School

It is said that teaching is the profession that makes all other professions possible. Teachers are the ones who bring about change in pupils' lives with excitement, enthusiasm and instilling the love of learning in them.

We would like to welcome you to join our Hub to provide quality education for our children, as well as providing you with a School Direct training year that will help you to become a successful teacher.

Heronsgate Primary School, working with Royal Greenwich Teaching School Alliance, take a leading role in co-ordinating teacher training.

We host a number of School Direct places each year in partnership with the University of Greenwich. This path into teaching is a great way to gain the qualifications and practical skills you need to become a teacher.  We offer School Direct salaried and Tuition-fee funded routes into teaching.

School Direct salaried courses take a year to complete, and are a great choice if you want to stay in the world of work.  Joining our Heronsgate Hub programme provides a more practical, hands-on learning experience, supported by outstanding teachers. You will also benefit from the immediate immersion in school life and the chance to build lasting relationships with students and colleagues.

We have developed a very strong partnership with the University of Greenwich (recently graded Outstanding by Ofsted) over the years. Our Tuition-fee funded PGCE trainees are supported and guided by Heronsgate Hub schools (all schools in the hub are graded good to outstanding by OFSTED) during their Initial and Final placements and receive pedagogical teaching at the University of Greenwich.
