School Direct

The North Herts Catholic Primary Alliance is an outstanding place to work and learn.

We provide a supportive and tailored learning environment in partnership with our training partner St Mary’s University, Strawberry Hill.

We are very excited to be offering both Salaried and Non-Salaried School Direct training for the 2016/17 academic year. Our vision is to prepare trainees to be outstanding teachers who will transform the lives of children and families through their inspirational teaching.

All of our alliance schools have many years of experience of teacher training and a long standing partnership with St Mary’s University.  We are excited to now be supporting School Direct trainees. We recognise that trainee teachers offer much to the schools in which they train and we fully embrace the energy, drive, creativity, innovation and enthusiasm that they bring.
