School Direct is a new route into teaching introduced by the DofE aimed at 'Training Our Next Generation of Outstanding Teachers'. This initiative gives schools participating in School Direct to recruit and select their own trainees.
Please note that we are listed as Medway Teaching Schools Alliance on the UCAS portal, not Sir Joseph Williamson's Mathematical School.
The UCAS portal opens for Applications on Thursday 21 November 2013.
Welcome to the MTSA
All children deserve an outstanding education and all teachers deserve outstanding professional development.
Our aim is to improve the outcomes and life chances of young people in Medway schools.
Our role is to create a culture of learning in which school leaders and teachers collaborate to share expertise, tackle challenges together and realise their aspirations for themselves and for their pupils.
We are ambitious in our plans for continuous improvement and committed to a belief in the power of collaboration between schools.
What we do, and how we work, is informed by a set of values and beliefs shared across the alliance.
To find out more about what we do and the values and beliefs that underpin our work, take a tour around our philosophy wheel.
