Initial Teacher Training

As a Local authority, Richmond is recognised as one of the highest achieving in England and offers a wide range of outstanding and good schools for both teacher trainees and early career teachers (ECTs). The area is culturally rich with Richmond and Bushy Royal Parks, the River Thames, theatres, museums, excellent sporting facilities, and a wonderful range of restaurants and places of entertainment.  Central London is 25 minutes away by London Underground and South West overground trains.


Marshgate Primary School is proud to host teacher trainees on placement, many of which come through our long-standing relationship with both St Mary`s University and Roehampton University. For more information on ways into teaching or on what both St Mary’s and Roehampton offer teacher trainees, please see links below.


Throughout the year, where possible, we also welcome work experience students and those seeking pre-course placements from within the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.  For further details, please contact the school office.
