School Direct

School direct is a route into teaching.

Ogley Hay Nursery School is the School Direct Lead School, for the Walsall Nursery School Alliance. 

Aspiring teachers on our programme have the opportunity to work and train within an alliance with diversity at its core. Our alliance of schools is dedicated to making a difference to the lives of some of the most disadvantaged children in Walsall. If you are ambitious, enthusiastic and passionate about teaching and working with early years children, we want to hear from you!

Ogley Hay Nursery School is part of the Brownhills cluster, which is made up of a nursery school, eleven primary schools, two secondary and a special school.  We work closely together to recruit teachers and provide a career path within our cluster. School direct students with us will spend time in other cluster schools, to gain experience in other phases.

We work in partnership with Wolverhampton University to deliver the programme. During their time with us our students gain:

  • A PGCE in primary teaching.
  • Qualified Teacher Status.
  • 60 credits at Master's level.
  • A wonderful experience working with our delightful children and families.
