You will be aware that all UK schools are currently closed as a result of guidance issued by the Government on 20th March 2020. To enable us to follow the guidelines around social distancing and safe working practise in our schools, we have therefore taken the decision to temporarily suspend our School Direct recruitment for the time being. We hope to provide an update after 1st June 2020, once the proposed date for schools partially re-opening has passed. 

If you wish to express and interest in applying for a School Direct place, or to be notified of when our recruitment process re-opens, please contact us
