Church Langton CE (Aided) Primary School

Following many successful years of providing teacher training opportunities with universities in Northampton and Bedford, Church Langton is now working with the University of Leicester to offer exciting opportunities for those looking for routes into teaching. In recent years trainee teachers have successfully completed PGCE, GTP and School Direct routes into teaching. Successful trainees on our School Direct course will gain a PGCE with QTS accredited by the University of Leicester.

We are based in the south east of Leicestershire, near Market Harborough. We have good road links, being close to the A6, A47 and A14. We will provide three high quality teaching placements across our excellent alliance of schools. We work in conjunction with the University of Leicester who will provide you with Outstanding (Ofsted 2016) academic training.

At Church Langton, we are the lead school for our growing alliance of schools - meaning we coordinate the School Direct program in conjunction with the University. Our School Direct Leader works closely with mentors, students, heads and tutors to provide a cohesive and effective program.

We can be flexible and allocate teaching placements according to students' needs or experiences, matching you with the best schools for you. We have a range of highly-skilled, experienced specialist teachers for you to learn from. Training opportunities will be available to you from every school in our alliance.

All of the schools in our alliance are rated good or outstanding by Ofsted. These include:

  • Belgrave St Peter's C of E Primary School, Leicester
  • Billesdon C of E Primary School, Leicestershire
  • Broughton Primary School, Kettering
  • Fleckney C of E Primary School, Leicestershire
  • Foxton Primary School, Leicestershire
  • Hallaton C of E Primary School, Leicestershire
  • Hathern C of E Primary School, Loughborough
  • Little Bowden Primary School, Market Harborough
  • St Barnabas C of E Primary School, Leicester
  • St Mary & St John CEVA Primary School, Rutland
  • Tugby C of E Primary School, Leicestershire

We are very excited to be providing the maths strand of your academic training here at Church Langton. Our maths specialist works closely with the University to provide Masters-level training whilst incorporating practical, classroom-based elements.

We are proud to be part of the Diocese of Leicester, and many schools in our alliance are church schools. The Diocese is very supportive of our training program, understanding the importance of developing and nurturing future teachers. They take an active role in the RE training we provide.

If you want to teach in a range of engaging primary schools and have a say in where your training takes place, then School Direct at Church Langton is the course for you!


We have a number of schools located north of Market Harborough.
