Becoming a teacher at Borden Grammar School…


Borden Grammar School is a vibrant and successful boys’ grammar school which makes it an ideal place to train to teach. In fact, in the last two years, Borden has been recognised by Canterbury Christ Church University as a ‘Leading School for Initial Teacher Training.’

We have outstanding experience in welcoming trainees from different subjects and mentoring them to become successful practitioners. The support and guidance available for trainees together with the expertise of our mentors have been rated excellent for a number of years by our trainees during their time in the school.  At Borden, we value the professional development of teachers and as a result have a solid CPD programme in place for our trainees on a yearly basis. We also work closely with the STSA for the delivery of some of the professional studies sessions. Borden has excellent links with CCCU and has delivered sessions in school for trainee teachers in the past.
