The schools in our partnership represent the diverse communities across Wandsworth.
Each has its own unique way of bringing learning to life and we are proud to work in partnership with them on our PGCE programme. Find out more about our partner schools by clicking on the links below.
In summer 2021, the Wandsworth Primary Schools' Consortium (WPSC) board elected a new Lead School to steer their work and the development of their School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) programme. Brandlehow Primary School will now take on this important leadership role, carrying on the excellent work of our previous Lead School, Beatrix Potter Primary.
The Headteacher, Mr Lacey, the senior leadership team and the Chair of the Governing Body of Brandlehow Primary School, each have key roles in the leadership and governance of Wandsworth Primary Schools' Consortium.
Brandlehow is a vibrant school located in Putney, where children are at the heart of every decision they make. The experienced, inclusive teaching team includes a high proportion of SCITT-trained teachers and senior leaders, including Mr Lacey. As such, there is a strong belief in, and commitment to, maintaining the excellent features of the SCITT programme and ensuring its development in the years ahead.
The school has strong local community links and a creative, inclusive approach to the curriculum.

The majority of consortium schools have worked with us for many years, and several have been with us since the our opening in 1996. In addition to offering mentoring for trainees, consortium schools will support our programme in a range of ways; providing subject tutors for our Centre-Based Training, running workshops, supporting recruitment processes and steering the management of our programme. We value this support and the variety of expertise this brings the partnership.
