The goal of Teach Wimbledon is simple; to welcome, inspire, support and develop the next generation of educators for the benefit of the community.
Working alongside Roehampton University, University of London and St Mary’s University, Teach Wimbledon leads an Alliance and a unique school direct partnership with 14 schools in Merton.
New figures released show that the progress made by pupils in Merton secondary schools, when they take their GCSEs, puts the boroughs schools as the best performing schools in the country. This comes as 100% of secondary schools in Merton continue to be judged at least good by Ofsted. Merton schools’ are top in England for Progress 8, figures from DfE show.
Teach Wimbledon’s secondary training is administered through a coalition of six schools in the Wimbledon area, one of which is Rutlish. We lead the provision of training opportunities for aspiring teachers in English, Maths, Science, History and Geography through the programme. An innovative and progressive approach based on effective pedagogical understanding provides the successful candidates with a plethora of educational opportunities, all underpinned by outstanding and experienced mentoring.
As an organisation that is committed to encouraging greater diversity amongst our teachers, Teach Wimbledon is delighted to have been featured in The Voice. Follow Ben's journey from Teach Wimbledon trainee to Deputy Head of Science at Ricards Lodge High School here:
