We aim to provide a challenging and well designed programme of school-based practice and academic study to a wide range of trainee teachers. Our inclusive ethos and well-resourced environment offer a highly supportive and personalised approach to learning.
Leaders across the consortium have very high aspirations for all trainees. The ITE curriculum has been meticulously designed to build confident, knowledgeable and reflective practitioners in the primary phase (Ofsted, 2023).
Location and facilities
In August 2017 we relocated to a new training suite at the top of St. Mary's RC Primary School in Battersea, Lockington Road, SW8 4BE. St Mary's is part of the brand new Battersea Exchange development and at the heart of the wider redevelopment of the Nine Elms area. We are located opposite Battersea Park train station, a short bus ride from Vauxhall bus station and underground and have easy connections to all our consortium schools. We are 5 minutes walk from Battersea Park and the Battersea Power Station shopping centre is in reach for a lunchtime stroll.
Facilities on-site include our SCITT office, a dedicated SCITT training room and spacious common room with kitchen facilities. Trainees have free access to the Wandsworth Learning Resources Service and Kingston University Library and Resource Centre in addition to a small on-site library.
