Hear from our trainees

Through our partnership schools, we supported for several years.

We take enormous pride in the significant number of trainees we have supported and guided to become a great teacher. Many of these have leadership roles in primary and secondary schools today.




I just wanted to email in this time of uncertainty to say a very big thank you to all of you!


You all, along with everyone at Farlingaye, made my first term of training to teach the best experience ever. I was able to learn so much from everyone and you were all incredibly supportive in the process! I honestly can’t sing your praises highly enough!


I am devastated that I potentially won’t be able to return to you to learn and grow even more. However, I am absolutely thrilled to tell you that thanks to your support I have been able to secure a job at a local high school in September! I wouldn’t have been able to do it without you!

"I completed my teacher training at both Kesgrave High school and Farlingaye High school and I strongly feel that my training experience would not have been as enjoyable if it wasn't for the staff and students at both of these schools. The support provided at each school was outstanding, both the support from my mentor and regular training sessions allowed me to start my NQT year feeling confident and equipped with the correct knowledge to start my career. I would highly recommend both schools as fantastic places to start your career as a teacher".

Completing my QTS and PGCE through the Farlingaye & Kesgrave Teaching School Alliance was really rewarding. I was brilliantly supported by the mentors and really felt part of the team from day one.
