"I have really enjoyed the SJP School Direct programme because it has allowed me to feel a part of a school community from day one. The structured weekly activities have equipped me with the skills and confidence to get the most out of my time spent teaching in schools. The variety of support, guidance and tuition that SJP has offered me has made the transition into teaching not just smooth but also thoroughly enjoyable." School Direct participant

“Networking with other schools was invaluable. I need to consider what people already enjoy teaching and how this can be harnessed. The opportunity to sign up to SJP’s network groups to share ideas on developing our pedagogy within my subject area was just what was needed.” Head of Faculty, St Helens

"The NPQML course has challenged my thinking in a way that I have not experienced before. The Facilitator developed my thoughts so that the action plan I produced was one that I used directly in my school. The results of the plan are evident in school already." NPQML Participant, Cohort 3


“SJP has had an enormous influence on the improvements taking place at the school I asked them to support. The leaders returned completely re-energised and have drawn on their learning from the visit to make changes that will have a significant impact on the quality of students’ learning. More importantly, the lack of ambition and aspiration has now gone. Seeing SJP students and what they can achieve regardless of their backgrounds or starting points has clearly been a revelation to colleagues at other schools.” HMI Ofsted


The partnership with SJP is bringing about rapid improvements in leadership, learning and the quality of teaching by providing coaching for leaders and teachers and opportunities for them to see and learn from outstanding practice.” HMI Ofsted
