Enhancement Days at GORSE SCITT

At GORSE SCITT, we strive to offer as much additionality to our outstanding course in order to provide a varied and engaging experience for our trainees.

As part of the GORSE Academies Trust, GORSE SCITT has the opportunity to take advantage of the enhancement opportunities within the Trust. All trainees have the opportunity to spend time at The Stephen Longfellow Academy which provides an exceptional alternative provision, in terms of both curriculum and therapy, for students aged 5 to 16 in the South Leeds region and surrounding areas.

This year, our trainees have been visiting The Stephen Longfellow Academy to observe best practice, meet colleagues, and gain a deeper understanding of how The Stephen Longfellow Academy ensures the best opportunities and outcomes for all students.

Trainee Review

Jake, a current PE trainee attended a recent enhancement day, and this is what he had to say about it:

“My enhancement day with the team at The Stephen Longfellow Academy was nothing short of phenomenal! From how the school days run, the attitudes and skills of staff members to the clear progression of students every lesson through a unique and personalised style of teaching.

It has given me a number of ideas on what I could do in a mainstream setting, and I can’t speak any more highly of Tom and the team at TSLA.”
