  • Stay Covid Safe in School

    Coughs close classes!

    Dear families

    Covid cases close classes for ten days by law. Nearly all of our class closures have been because parents sent their child into school when they shouldn't have done.

    To keep as many classes open as possible please:

    Sam Neal's insightful reflection of training to be a History teacher.

    “Teaching was never something I saw myself doing. I briefly flirted with the idea of being a teacher when I was younger, but settled on a career in the emergency services, where I have spent the last six years working in some demanding roles.

So, several months before the world turned upside down, I took the plunge, dusted off my history degree and become a trainee history teacher.

    I have had a pre-programmed, in-built love of history for a...

    Our partnership with Finland. How we never stop learning…

    Shelly Geeson & Treena Philpotts


    ‘What you learn without joy, you forget without grief.’

    The Nottinghamshire Torch SCITT has forged a strong partnership with the Jyvaskula Teacher Training School, Finland, one which has been in place for more than a decade. The impact of this friendship is far reaching and has influenced our own practice as teachers and leaders, can be felt in our cohorts of SCITT trainees and has seen us make adjustments to our curriculum, systems and processes. These changes have tak...
