Holystone Primary School Initial Teacher Training

We support the training of future outstanding teachers through a variety of means, and in particular we offer school based School Direct or SCITT placements.
School Direct/SCITT
Holystone Primary School is a member of a School Direct Initial Teacher Training partnership.  A number of non-salaried School Direct places are available through the ShiNE Teaching School Alliance.  If you are interested in School Direct Initial Teacher Training, further information can be found here.  Download the School Direct Brochure here.  Successful School Direct applicants will receive school based training in conjunction with Northumbria University.
We also host SCITT students from from the North East PE Partnership SCITT programme, a primary teaching programme that has a focus on a PE specialism.  Details of that course can be found here
