About Us

The Three Rivers Teaching School Alliance is led by The King Edward VI School, Morpeth. We are an outstanding school and have a longstanding reputation for academic excellence and continue to be a central part of the local and regional community. 

Our Alliance is a well-established partnership of schools that work closely together to share good practice and learn from each other.

The Three Rivers Teaching School Alliance has developed a strong network of schools to deliver a dynamic School Direct teacher training programme. We work in partnership with Newcastle and Northumbria Universities offering one year full time School Direct tuition placements in primary and secondary settings leading to a full Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).

 If you would like to find out more about School Direct with The Three Rivers Teaching School, register to attend one of our Open Evenings.

Here you will have the chance to learn about the programme in more detail, talk to some trainee teachers and some teachers who are in the first and second years of teaching.

There will also be the opportunity to ask any questions that you might have about teaching in general or the School Direct programme.

The Open Evenings will be held at King Edward VI School Morpeth NE61 1DN.
