Bingley Grammar School

Bingley Grammar Welcomes Teacher Training Bus Tour

On Wednesday 13th March, 22 PGCE students from Leeds Trinity University arrived in school on the Bradford Bus Tour.

Bingley was one of three schools visited by the group lead by Ben McGregor who is the ITT coordinator here at Bingley Grammar. The group also visited Bradford Forster Academy and Dixons Cottingley Academy - all very different and contrasting schools.                                                                   

We were asked to give the student teachers  'An opportunity to meet members of our Senior Leadership Team and focus on what schools are looking for in their recruitment processes’.

The group arrived at 1.15pm and were given a short welcome and introduction to Bingley Grammar School by Dave Foster, Assistant Headteacher, before being taken on a tour of the school. Debbie Hillary, our HR Officer then shared good application and interview practices with the group. After a short question and answer session the group returned to the bus.

We hope the group found the day useful and we look forward to following their progress as they begin to apply for their first NQT roles within local schools.
