Open Sessions

Throughout the year, we run a series of Open Sessions so that you can visit us at Chepping View Primary Academy or at one of our Trust or Partnership Schools. At these sessions, there will be a presentation by one of the SCITT senior leaders and then a time for questions and an informal chat. Anyone considering a career in primary school teaching is encouraged to attend.
