Newcroft Primary Academy is located in the north of Leicestershire, in the town of Shepshed; a stone’s throw from Loughborough. Newcroft is graded outstanding by Ofsted and continues to demonstrate rapid improvement in the quality of teaching and learning and extremely effective coaching and mentoring of Initial Teacher Training students.
Following many successful years of providing teacher training opportunities with universities in Leicester, Loughborough, Birmingham, Nottingham, Lincoln and Derby, Newcroft Primary Academy is again working exclusively with the University of Leicester to offer exciting opportunities for those looking for routes into teaching. In previous years, trainee teachers have successfully completed PGCE, GTP, Assessment Only and School Direct routes into teaching, with all students successfully gaining full time employment in schools both within the partnership and within the wider area. We are pleased to working in conjunction with the University of Leicester.
Our Trust schools span a wide area of the county. We know that our experienced mentors and our forward-thinking and innovative approaches to teaching and learning across the range of schools will provide trainees with the ideal foundations for a successful career in teaching.
