Natalie Ingham: School Direct Trainee
Batley Girls’ has afforded me the opportunity not only to train to teach English, but work with, and learn from, really lovely people; I have been very fortunate to work alongside such a supportive department and teach such great students.
On the programme we felt involved with the school immediately, taking part in Summer Schools, trips and shows. It has been a challenging, exciting and, at times, surprising experience – I never thought I’d dress as a zombie and dance in front of Year 7 during my teacher training! – but one which I have genuinely enjoyed.
One thing I can certainly say about the experience is that I have made some lovely memories and wonderful friends along the way.
