The Cheadle Academy

School Direct

The Cheadle Academy is proud to have been selected by Keele University as one of a select few lead schools in the area to offer School Direct placements.

A proud tradition

The Cheadle Academy has a long tradition of working alongside Keele University in the delivery of its Initial Teacher Training course. The Cheadle Academy has hosted numerous Associate Teachers over the years and has contributed to the successful development of cohorts of inspirational classroom practitioners. The majority of our ATs have gone on to teach nationally and internationally, at both classroom teacher level and beyond. As a highly valued member of the Keele Partnership The Cheadle Academy is both proud and excited to be a part of this pioneering new approach to ITT for the Twenty First Century.
