"I have really enjoyed my experience at St Bartholomew's, all the staff were very welcoming and supportive. It has been a huge learning curve during this first stage, but I couldn't have asked for a better mentor. The targets i had set were clear and made sense, I could see what I needed to do to improve my teaching skills."

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my placement and would definitely come back as I feel I still have lots to learn." 

"Megan (my mentor and class teacher) has been a wonderful host teacher. She is very supportive, providing me with helpful targets and giving me as much free rein with teaching as possible. I feel like I have come on leaps and bounds thanks to her help."

"Both my class teachers/ mentors and TA's have been greatly supportive, giving me great advice and support throughout my placement."

"I have had a wonderful experience at St Bart’s; to begin with the team are welcoming and friendly. Not only do they care about the wellbeing and education of their students, but the staff that work there too.  I felt for anything I needed I would be supported. The children are absolutely fantastic, giving great charisma, energy, effort and resilience. They work so hard, encourage each other in their learning and are a pleasure to teach. The school has a lovely atmosphere where you’ll get a friendly hello wherever you go. Overall, a wonderful community at St Bart’s, thank you to everyone!"
