Are you interested in a career in teaching?

Monk's Walk School is a member of the Alban Federation partnership in the area of teacher training.

All applications are submitted through UCAS (the University Admission System). Course are available for secondary programmes, with salaries and bursaries available for suitably qualified candidates in many subjects.

Further details can be obtained by emailing Mrs Clare Hodgson.


We are also particularly interested in hearing from anyone who is thinking of returning to teaching, especially those who hold QTS and who can teach EBacc subjects. Further information in the linked document:
