Sheffield and Peak District Hub

Lead School: Silverdale School

Our founding hub is in Sheffield, with over 8 schools in both Sheffield and the Peak District offering placements.

At the core of the Sheffield hub is Silverdale School, an accredited provider of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and an outstanding secondary comprehensive with a long history specialising in modern languages teaching. This year the Sunday Times awarded Silverdale Top School of the North in its annual Good Schools Guide.

Within this hub we have a strong network of existing primary and secondary schools in South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire. The network has been built through School Direct and is now one of the largest in the country. In light of this success, the NCTL accredited Silverdale School as the National Modern Languages SCITT.

About Sheffield and the Peak Distrct

Sheffield is the fourth largest city in England and one of the greenest in Europe. Its vibrant cultural and leisure attractions, and proximity to the countryside of the Peak District, make it one of the most popular university cities for students staying on and making it their home after their education. It is certainly an excellent place to start your teaching career.

Sheffield is also safer than other big cities. The UK Peace Index 2013, a study using Home office data, found Sheffield to be England’s safest major city. As well as being a friendly city, Sheffield is one of the cheapest to live for students.

Sheffield is on the doorstep of the Derbyshire Peak District and National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty.
