Who are we?

The Priestley Partnership is a group of six schools based in the Manningham area of Bradford who work in partnership with Exceed SCITT to provide high-quality teacher training.

Our schools are diverse and rewarding environments within which children and staff thrive.  We have a proud tradition of developing our trainees – right through to Headteachers in some cases.  Our schools focus on developing the whole child, both academically and socially, ensuring they are equipped with the life skills to make choices and transform our world.  We are equally committed to ensuring you, our trainees, receive the right care and training to flourish in your careers.

The schools in our partnership range in size from 200-600 children, which means we can provide contrasting placements for our trainees.  Everything we do at Priestley Partnerships is about developing strong relationships to enable our trainees and children to excel.  As a partnership we will strive to ensure you reach your ambitions and goals.

Our schools offer placements on both the 3-7 and 5-11 age ranges leading to QTS and a PGCE.  We offer a variety of salaries and non-salaried placements.  Please join us to continue to shape the children of the future.
