Sir Roger Manwood’s School is part of the Canterbury Teaching Alliance (CTA). The CTA works alongside Canterbury Christchurch University to offer teacher training through the ‘School Direct’ scheme, in which most of a student’s time is spent based in one school. School Direct leads to Qualified Teacher Status. Those on the scheme are also able to do a Top Up during the year that also results in the award of a Post-Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE).
As well as Manwood’s, the CTA consists of Barham Primary School, Bridge & Patrixbourne Church of England Primary School, Chislet Church of England Primary School, Hoath Primary School, Orchard School, Parkside Community Primary School, Wickhambreaux Church of England Primary School, Spires Academy, and Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar School.
