Thomas Tallis School is one of the lead teaching schools in the Royal Greenwich Teaching School Alliance, orchestrating initial teacher training across a small hub of local secondary schools. We work to ensure we provide students with the best possible learning experience for life in the classroom
The Secondary School Direct Hub works in partnership with both Goldsmith’s and Greenwich University to host a growing number of School Direct places each year. Goldsmith’s, University of London, has been training teachers since 1904 and has been recognised as one of the UK’s top creative universities as voted for by students. Greenwich University has a long history of teacher training, going back over 100 years at the Avery Hill Campus. Both Universities feature lecturers of many years experience in the classroom with an enviable record of success in teacher training.
We are currently hosting School Direct Fee Paying trainees. All School Direct fee paying trainees are enrolled on a Postgraduate PGCE course with 60 master’s credits
We are delighted to be part of the School Direct programme and look forward to working with trainees who are interested in a career in the classroom. We firmly believe that it is an excellent way to learn and qualify to become a teacher. School Direct gives candidates the opportunity to gain practical experience that is personalised to the needs of the individual trainee supported by the very best that Universities have to offer.
