The School Experience Programme provides an opportunity for participants to spend up to 10 days in a school, subject to a conditional offer from an higher education institution (HEI) ITT provider. Huntington School has a direct link to the University of York for this programme although all other conditional offers are accepted. The school contact is Ian Price although applications must be made through the TDA website. For further details visit; http://www.tda.gov.uk/partners/recruiting/careerexploration/school_intro.aspx


York Students In Schools
Huntington recently became involved in the York Students in Schools programme (YSIS). From September 2008 we will be taking 10 University of York students who will be working in a variety of departments in the school one day a week over the course of the year. They will act as support to teachers in the classroom and in developing resources for specific activities. The school contact is Ian Price, Assistant Headteacher. We urge those interested to contact Lyn Whiting at the University of York. For further information please visit;
