Are you interested in becoming a teacher?

Chauncy School has a long and proud history of training teachers on the School Direct training programme.

Working with The University of Hertfordshire, we are keen to find the next generation of newly qualified teachers.  With our school’s recent growth it’s important to us to look to the future.

If you have a degree together with at least C grades in English and Mathematics at GCSE, you may be qualified to apply for one of our training programmes. We are looking to train teachers in a wide variety of curriculum areas and some subject areas attract a tax free bursary from the Department of Education.

Further details about getting into teaching can be found at if you are keen to find out more; or come and talk to us. Please contact Sian Newman on 01920 411200 or email

The training year begins on October 1st and all potential applicants are advised to contact us sooner rather than later.  Making contact in May or June is likely to be too late to provide a realistic chance of success in joining a training course for the following September.
