Indeed, we are very experienced and successful at training excellent graduates to become outstanding teachers without needing to do a PGCE; you can gain your teaching qualification at Blundell’s whilst in the classroom. We are a regional training centre for the Independent Schools Teacher Induction Panel and we have a team of dedicated staff who take a keen interest in making you a better teacher, whether you are just starting your career or are looking for the next step.
Blundell's has a reputation for the collegiality of its staff and the positivity and friendliness of its pupils. The outstanding characteristic of Blundellians is their positive ‘can-do’ attitude. The main finding of our 2019 Independent Schools Inspectorate report was that the quality of our pupils’ academic and other achievements is “excellent”, and the quality of our pupils’ personal development is also “excellent”. It also noted that; “Pupils throughout the school demonstrate strong development of self-confidence and self-awareness, at levels appropriate to or, for many, beyond their age. Pupils showed their justifiable pride in their own and in others’ achievements, without appearing in the least arrogant or excessively competitive.”
