About The Sheffield SCITT

The Sheffield SCITT is owned and run by Notre Dame High School, Sheffield. Notre Dame has been judged ‘Outstanding in all areas’ by OFSTED and The Sheffield SCITT was recently judged ‘Good’ by OFSTED for the quality of its teacher training.

Our partnership schools all see The Sheffield SCITT as the best way to find and develop their own future teachers. The Sheffield SCITT aims to supply most of the Newly Qualified Teacher needs of our partnership of schools. Whilst we cannot guarantee jobs for all trainees at the end of the course, the vast majority of trainees secure jobs within our partnership.

We remain small enough to know every trainee as an individual and give every partner school a voice in the running of the SCITT, but large enough to offer our trainees a diverse and bespoke experience of a different schools within the partnership - including Academies, Maintained Community Schools, Church Schools, those in multicultural inner cities, secondary schools with large sixth forms and primary schools with Early Years Centres.
