School Direct

 What is School Direct?

School Direct is an approach to initial teacher training that gives schools more influence over the ways teachers are trained.


School Direct enables us to:

  • Select and recruit our own trainees.
  • Design our own training programme depending on the needs of the trainees and the school.


Barmston Village Primary works in partnership with Newbottle Primary Academy (lead school), local secondary schools and the University of Sunderland.


We offer the School Direct Tuition Route (not salaried).

Primary Routes

  1. Maths
