Training to Teach at Brighton Hill Community School

SCITT Ambassador School - train to teach here! 

At Brighton Hill Community School, we put learning and teaching at the heart of all that we do. As such, we believe that we have a key role in helping to train the next generation of teachers.

We are delighted to be a partner school for South Farnham and George Abbot SCITTs from 2023-24. 

South Farnham SCITT delivers Ofsted outstanding school-based initial teacher training for primary and secondary teachers across London and the Southeast, in partnership with George Abbot SCITT. In true collaboration, the coming together of two Ofsted outstanding SCITTs, each with over 20 years’ experience leading ITT and a shared vision to recruit and train the outstanding teachers of the future, brings stability and continuity to our local primary and secondary school workforce. 

Through an extensive and diverse partnership of schools, primary and secondary trainees are placed into geographically organised cohorts across Berkshire, Brighton and Hove, East and West Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey, Slough and the London Boroughs of Croydon, Kingston, Hillingdon, Hayes, Richmond and Sutton, minimising travel for trainees and allowing applicants to train and work in their local community. We are the region's largest school-led cross-phase provider and are praised for our personalised approach for every trainee regardless of circumstance. 

Our teacher training programmes have children’s best interests at the core. Working as a true partnership, we strive to develop best practice so that children across the region experience teaching of the highest quality, underpinned by outstanding research-based training and development opportunities for all.  

As a school, we are proud to be supporting the recruitment, training and development of future teachers across our region. To find out more please see our interactive brochure, visit our websites SF SCITT / George Abbot SCITT

School Experience
If you are interested in spending a day or more with us to gain a real insight into the world of teaching, feel free to sign up to our next School Experience Day on the DfE School Experience website (we offer roughly one per month). We will arrange for you to shadow some of our teachers in the faculty area that you are interested in and see what life in the classroom is really like. There will also be opportunities for you to meet staff with key roles and responsibilities within the school to develop your understanding of how schools work.

Placement School
In addition to our exciting new partnership with South Farnham SCITT, we are currently a placement school for a further two excellent ITT providers: the Basingstoke Alliance SCITT and the Hampshire SCITT Partnership. We are proud to offer an effective, comprehensive and supportive package to the trainee teachers that are placed with us.
