Sir Thomas Rich’s Teaching School

Teaching Schools are outstanding schools that work with others to provide high-quality training and development to new and experienced school staff. Sir Thomas Rich’s Teaching School delivers continuing professional development (CPD) courses for both primary and secondary teachers, and provides Initial Teacher Training (ITT) working with the Gloucestershire Initial Teacher Education Partnership (GITEP), Odyssey Teaching School Alliance (through the School Direct route), the University of Gloucestershire, the University of Bristol and the University of Worcester.

Why train with Sir Thomas Rich’s?

Sir Thomas Rich’s has been rated as Outstanding in all areas in every Ofsted report – from quality of teaching to academic achievement and behaviour. With a reputation for academic and sporting excellence, the School attracts high-ability, talented students and offers a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities and exceptional pastoral support. We feel we are uniquely placed to offer high quality, tailored training to teachers at the start of their careers, and to primary and secondary teachers wishing to develop and enhance their existing skills and knowledge.
