West Lakes Teaching School Alliance consists six schools all located in the west of Cumbria.
Our partnership schools are:
- Beacon Hill School
- Cockermouth School
- Millom School
- Solway Community College
- Workington Academy
- West Lakes Academy
All of our partnership schools teach students aged 11-16 and four have sixth forms. All teacher trainees on our PGCE course will have access to KS5 teaching experience.
All trainees will undertake a minimum of 120 days school experience during this programme. This will be split across two of our partnership schools. You will spend one term in one school, and two terms in another.
School placements are selected to ensure all trainees are offered a broad range of experience. Geographical location will also be taken into account where possible.
