School Direct – Postgraduate Teaching Qualification


The Lighthouse School Partnership (LSP) is an inspirational and exciting place to work and learn. It has been awarded six teach direct places from the DfE. LSP provides a high quality school based learning opportunity in partnership with the University of the West of England. This is an innovative partnership of four schools (High down Infants, High Down Juniors, Portishead Primary and St Peter's Primary) ho are dedicated to  providing outstanding education to the children of Portishead and to serve the community in which we are based. We want to ensure future outstanding provision and are excited about training teachers of the future.


LSP hope to offer employment on successful completion of the training, and will offer an interview  to trainees who are performing well should a vacancy for a suitable post  arise within a trainee’s home school.  Portishead is a rapidly growing town and all our schools are oversubscribed and undergoing expansion to provide school places to local children.
