About the Secondary Federation
The Wokingham Secondary Federation consists of eight secondary schools, two special schools, one Pupil Referral unit and One Hospital Education School.
All the schools are within a six mile radius of the market town of Wokingham, rated for several years as being one of the most desirable areas of the country to live.
The schools offer an outstanding opportunity both for current teachers to develop their careers and for future teachers to learn their skills.
Working as a partnership of schools, the Wokingham Federation offers training places through School Direct to talented graduates. The schools have extensive experience of offering initial teacher training to trainees ranging from recently graduated students to those looking for a career change. Many trainees finish their training and then gain a teaching place in a Federation school.
The Federation offers a comprehensive training programme to all NQTs. This programme provides practical support to NQTs throughout their first year of teaching.
The Federation’s annual Careers’ Fair ensures pupils and students in its schools are made aware of some of the many career opportunities available in the area.
Common inset days bring together school staff from across the Federation, very often in subject-based grouping. The sharing of skills, experience and expertise on these days helps maintain the highest quality learning and teaching in Federation schools.
Teachers have the opportunity to join subject-based network groups, many of which meet on a regular basis throughout the year.
The Wokingham Federation works in partnership with Wokingham Borough Council.
