Personalised high-quality initial teacher training in Bradford

Exceed Partnership

Exceed Partnership is led by two ‘Outstanding’ schools: Copthorne and Horton Grange primary schools in Bradford. Working as a partnership of eleven schools, this Teaching Schools Alliance has delivered School Direct programmes for over six years. Many of the trainees have secured employment in the partnership schools during their training years. The Alliance seeks the very best trainees as that is what their children de

serve. We can tell you more during our free local briefing events.

The schools serve inner-city Bradford and Keighley. This provides great training opportunities for trainees on this programme. They have many unique training opportunities such as working with children who are learning English as a second language. They also have the opportunity to work in schools in Bronte Country serving a contrasting community.

The Teaching Schools leading the partnership provide school improvement support for the city and region. This means you’ll have training and support available from these schools for your entire career. The Teaching Schools deliver the Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) and Recently Qualified Teacher (RQT) programmes plus leadership programmes as your career progresses.

The training places available

Exceed Partnership offer both the fee-funded/unsalaried and School Direct Salaried training routes. Further fee-funded/unsalaried places are available in Bradford Exceed SCITT and Shanidar School Direct, and in Leeds via Westerton Partnership.
