Warren Junior Teaching School is an outstanding school offering teacher training positions for Primary and Special by providing high quality training for teachers of the future through School Direct.


We work in partnership with Goldsmith’s University of London to provide Initial Teacher Training through the School Direct programme. Goldsmith’s is one of the largest providers of teacher training and a world renowned leader in the field. Placements can be at any of the Strategic Partner schools within the alliance, including the outstanding Trinity Special School.

All mentors are experienced teachers and senior leaders.
