Why Choose Us

Teach Surrey is a highly respected and well-established partnership of schools based in and around the Guildford 


With 18 years' experience leading ITT, George Abbot SCITT is an Ofsted Outstanding provider offering practical training in a variety of schools, with experienced practitioners to mentor you through the course.


In 2012 we were one of only two providers in the UK to have been asked by the Teaching Agency to lead the way in the future of teacher training in schools and run and develop the new SCITT programme in conjunction with Esher C of E High School and West Hill School. 

In 2014/15 we became the only SCITT in the UK to be offering the innovative Researchers in Schools (RIS) programme in partnership with The Brilliant Club.  Following our success the programme has now been rolled out across the UK and we are now the RIS hub SCITT for the South of England.


We believe the best place to train teachers effectively in the highly complex art of teaching is in schools and the close links within the partnership provide trainees with a broad spectrum of experiences.  Trainees meet for weekly training sessions, this enables them to share good practice and discuss their experiences in the different schools.  Formal academic lectures and training sessions are delivered by serving teachers and experts in various fields.  


You will be based at one of the partner schools listed below for the majority of your training year, with the opportunity for an experience in a contrasting school for six weeks (four weeks for all salaried routes).  All trainees will  also have a one week experience in a Special School.


All main placements for the School Direct Unsalaried programme will be in partner schools graded 'Good' or 'Outstanding' by Ofsted. They include schools designated as 'Teaching Schools' in recognition of their excellent staff training and development programmes.
