Train to Teach

Are you interested in becoming a qualified teacher?

If you would like a career in teaching and are looking for professional opportunities in an outstanding school, Newlands is the place for you.

Teacher training is the first step to becoming part of a profession that is uniquely rewarding and fulfilling. We will ensure that you gain valuable experience in the classroom, fully supported by a subject specialist mentor. You will also spend time at the University of Reading, studying theoretical knowledge, working with a tutor and a group of other trainees.

Newlands Girls’ School in Maidenhead is an associate member of the Wokingham Federation, which enables us to deliver Initial Teacher Training in partnership with the University of Reading. Successful completion of the programme will result in the award of a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). This is a perfect springboard to a rewarding and enjoyable career at Newlands.

Eligible candidates may qualify for a training bursary or scholarship. Please see for financial support available for trainees in 2021–2022.
