Initial Teacher Training
Who Are We?
The Excalibur Teaching School Alliance is a partnership of Primary and Secondary schools in Bristol, West Berkshire & Wiltshire. We work in collaboration with Bath Spa University and Bristol University to develop and deliver cutting-edge teacher training programmes.
Excalibur TSA has two ITT hubs; one Wiltshire-based at St John’s in Marlborough and one in Bristol, at Fairfield High School.
Our flexible approach to teacher training enables us to meet your needs and interests in both rural and urban locations across a range of secondary schools, with primary placements available in the Marlborough local area.
What makes us special?
Our schools are situated in excellent geographical locations, close to the M4 and with access to the thriving cities of Bristol, Reading and Swindon. This enables us to offer a unique blend of urban and rural educational experiences. We provide Primary and Secondary ITT placements as well as the opportunity to experience Key Stage 2/3 cross-phase teaching.
