Are you a Graduate and thinking about becoming a teacher?

If you are interested in becoming a teacher and want to gain some experience then why not join us as a Graduate Intern prior to starting your teacher training?

Our Graduate Internships are short-term salaried posts which will enable you to make a firm decision whether working in a school and becoming a teacher is for you, as well as gaining experience in a classroom environment.

To discuss joining St Helena School on a Graduate Internship and to answer any questions that you may have, please contact Deputy Headteacher Charlie McCarthy via the school reception on 01206 572253 or via email : [email protected]
