Westerton School Direct Partnership, led by Westerton Primary Academy, is a partnership of primary schools across West Yorkshire. We provide great places to train to teach and the schools within the partnership are committed to joint collaborative working. We have a long history of delivering successful school based teacher training in partnership with Leeds Trinity University. School Direct is a route into teaching for high quality graduates and gives participants the opportunity to work more closely with schools. 

The schools within the partnership all see school direct as the best way to develop future teachers. They are all committed to their trainees' progress and invest in them as an integral and important member of the staff team.
