Partner Training School

Cockburn School

As a trainee in Drama at Cockburn School, you will develop your confidence to work in a proactive role in building pupils’ confidence in their own abilities.  We will train and equip you to be at the forefront of developments within Drama teaching, enhancing your subject knowledge.  We will offer you the support to provide you with the skill set to handle the changing curriculum in an art form that engages and motivates pupils.

Successful candidates will gain experience in a range of dramatic styles and a variety of examination specifications and will build on their existing skills to start their career as teachers of this unique and powerful subject.

Trainee Teacher Experience

Due to its smaller size cohort compared to many other Drama ITT courses, Leeds SCITT can offer a more dynamic and personalised training experience.  Trainees are nurtured and are given the best tools to ensure they reach their full potential.

From the Drama ITT School Lead Tutor

The Drama department at Cockburn School believes a vocational approach to delivering skills in Drama is key.  Pupils regularly engage with professional artists in a variety of disciplines to ensure a wider perspective of the arts profession.


The Drama Curriculum at Cockburn School is regularly evaluated to remain up to date with professional developments and current art-specific teaching approaches. Cockburn School and the Leeds SCITT programme are committed to ensuring the very best for the future of Drama Education, by training dynamic and exciting new teachers now.

Cockburn School’s provision in the arts has been awarded Artsmark Platinum status in recognition of the school’s commitment to, and excellence in, arts education. Artsmark is Arts Council England’s award recognising excellence in cultural education. It celebrates schools’ commitment to embracing arts across the curriculum and bringing creative learning to life for children and young people.

In addition to your Lead School placement, you can be placed within up to two of our additional partnership schools to give you contrasting placements.
