School Direct

GITEP is proud to be the accrediting provider with four School Direct Lead Schools. Our partner schools include some of the highest performing schools in the country and both the teaching school hub schools for Gloucestershire.

Lead Schools

School Institute Institute Code
Balcarras School Balcarras School 14B
Pate’s Grammar School Odyssey Learning Alliance 1ZB
Marling School Cotswold Edge Teaching Alliance 26P
The Cotswold School The Cotswold Teacher Training Partnership 2EH

Trainees recruited through School Direct follow the same programme as other GITEP trainees. All the places offered are School Direct Fee Paying places.

All trainees have to have placements in at least two schools and these will offer contrasting experiences. The School Direct partnerships work in slightly different ways:

Balcarras School

Trainees will be placed at Balcarras School and one other GITEP school.

Pate’s Grammar School (Odyssey Learning Alliance)

Trainees will have one placement in a grammar school and one in a comprehensive. It is likely that trainees will be placed at either Pate’s Grammar School or Sir Thomas Rich’s School and Tewkesbury School or Barnwood Park School.

Marling School (Cotswold Edge Teaching Alliance)

Trainees will be placed at either Marling School or Stroud High School with a second placement at a comprehensive school.

The Cotswold School (The Cotswold Teacher Training Partnership)

Trainees will be placed at either The Cotswold School or Chipping Campden School, with their other placement being at another local GITEP school.
