The White Hills Park Federation Trust has enjoyed a long standing relationship with the University of Nottingham’s School of Education and we are proud to have contributed to the training of new generations of professionals as they come into teaching. For more information about the University of Nottingham School of Education, please go to:
The White Hills Park Federation Trust is a federation of three school sites, incorporating Alderman White School and The Bramcote School (both 11-16 schools) and Bramcote College (our growing 6th form). Our ethos sees us firmly rooted in the communities which we serve and we feel we are a bright example of what small schools can offer when they work in a federation. At both Alderman White School (approx. 600 students) and The Bramcote School (approx. 500 students) we are proud to provide our students with the support and understanding typical of small schools, in which every student is known well by their teachers and treated as an individual aspiring to achieve their best. We are also in the fortunate position of being able to work together at Bramcote College to offer GCSE and A Level students a diverse range of subjects, which wouldn’t be possible if we weren’t a part of The White Hills Park Federation Trust. We feel we are unique in offering all of the benefits of smaller community based schools with the advantages of larger establishments.
We believe that our Federation is built on a strong educational ethos and also on strong relationships between staff, students and home. Teachers joining the Federation soon find that we are an inclusive and supportive team and that we work together with the common goal of inspiring our students.
In 2015/16, 100% of School Direct Secondary (University of Nottingham) trainees who worked in The White Hills Park Federation Trust (either at Alderman White School or The Bramcote School) gained employment as teachers in a range of schools. The Federation has a strong record of employing trainee teachers who have worked with us in permanent posts should they become available.
We are currently working with Schools Direct trainees in different departments across the Federation, and would welcome interest from Schools Direct trainees in any of the following areas:
