Introducing the partnership

You will be trained only in ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ schools to develop you into a teacher, having the opportunity to train within Nicholas Postgate Catholic Academy Trust (NPCAT).

St. Patrick’s Catholic Primary is the lead school within the partnership and the school has a wealth of experience in training teachers. You will be working alongside, receiving support and benefiting from the guidance of experienced classroom practitioners.

Our vision is to work in close partnership with all of our trainee teachers so they receive bespoke support. Your class-based learning is complemented through a comprehensive professional development programme led in partnership with Leeds Trinity University.
