School Experience Programme


If you are interested in becoming a teacher it is very useful to gain experience in a current school. This could be a day or two visiting and following classes around or even a week experiencing the life of a school.

You can easily gain school experience through the Department for Education website where you can register with the School Experience Programme.

If you  search for Altrincham Grammar School for Girls (postcode WA14 2NL),  you will see that we offer school experience days in Sciences, Maths, History, Geography, English, Design Technology, Computing, Religious Education and Citizenship.  We will also be able to help you gain experience in one of our partner schools for a contrasting experience. For Primary School experience, please search for Lewis Street Primary (postcode M30 0PU).

If you need help finding school experience, please email

Please note that school experience days are for prospective applicants. Due to time and staff commitments we cannot offer school experience to anyone currently holding an offer from another ITE provider.
