Making the right choice for you

When applying via DfE APPLY, you can make up to three choices

•Competition for places can be strong, so think about how best to use your choices

•You don’t have to use all three, but if you do, you have to make them at the same time – you can’t add them at a later date 

•There is no restriction to your three choices – you can choose from any route, subject or age group, in any combination

•To apply for a place on our School Direct Training Programme, you make your application to St. John’s CE Primary School (Provider Code: 15D) which is the School Direct lead school.

School Direct works with a partnership of schools, so you may train in one of our partner schools rather than the lead school. 

•The DfE APPLY postgraduate initial teacher training programme search tool will allow you to differentiate your search, so you can search for a particular route, e.g. School Direct or by Provider postcode, e.g. IG9 5RX
