Dunraven School’s Sharing Excellence Partnership offers school based teacher training of the highest standard with our primary and secondary school partners and accrediting providers, University of Roehampton and e-Qualitas. Dunraven has a well established reputation for effective staff development and long-standing programmes for developing teachers, including traditional ITT routes, Teach First, and School Direct. We offer support and professional guidance in making a transition from support roles in school into teacher training and employment.
We promote ‘Excellence for All’ by recruiting and training high calibre teachers for local schools. Our trainees have gone on to successful employment, mostly within our Partnership. The majority of our School Direct trainees have been formally assessed as ‘Outstanding’ by the time they complete their training.
Dunraven is part of the South Lambeth Schools’ Partnership working with ten local primary schools and SL6, a post-16 collaboration with local secondary schools, which provides a wide range of training and development opportunities for our trainees. A significant building programme means the school now has purpose-built facilities.
Our School Direct training partnership is a strong local network of Lambeth primary and secondary schools. It includes Corpus Christi Roman Catholic Primary School, Crown Lane, Dunraven, Sunnyhill, Goldfinch, Julian’s, St Andrew’s Catholic, Rosendale and Van Gogh Primary Schools. Secondary partners are the The Elm Green School, Trinity Academy, St Mary’s High School and City Heights Academy. Dunraven School, all-through from 4-18, offers training in both primary and secondary phases.
