Initial Teacher Training

Our Excellent reputation with

Initial Teacher Training (ITT).

As a former lead school for the Southend SCITT we have the necessary experience and suitably qualified staff to support trainee teachers through their training year with us.

We work specifically in partnership with Essex and Thames SCITT and also Essex Teacher Training  through the Eastwood Academy and offer a range of non-salaried training opportunities and at times salaried training opportunities through these providers.

Applicants must have a relevant degree, preferably a 2:1 or above and English and Mathematics GCSE at C / Grade 4 or above or a recognised equivalent.

We offer School Experience Days in most secondary subjects for suitable candidates to support applications.  These days provide an opportunity to get a taste for what teaching entails.

If you are interested in training to teach at Southend High School for Girls, would like to arrange a visit or simply would like to get some advice on training to teach please contact us by email.

The ITT Co-ordinator is Mrs S A Francis ( )
