Helping to Train the Next Generation of Teachers

The school hosted ten trainee teachers from the Ashbourne Dove Valley Teaching School Alliance (ADVTSA) over the last two weeks. All trainee teachers were embedded in a class team and spent the week learning about the school, how we teach and learn, and about some of the things that make us so very unique (as much as time allowed!).

One trainee said “Can I also thank you both for arranging the Alderwasley enrichment week that I’m currently in the middle of. Such an amazing insight, a really valuable experience. Thoroughly enjoying it!”
Whilst another said “I thoroughly enjoyed my time last week at Alderwasley Sixth Form. The information and observations will serve me very well in practice so thank you for arranging the opportunity.”
We are very proud of unsolicited feedback like this!
