The best starting point is to gain some experience in school by taking part in the School Experience Programme (SEP).  You can book a place at Montsaye Academy by using the portal or by emailing the school directly. If you are not eligible for a place through the SEP, but would still like to see the Academy and consider training with us, then please contact Peter Tomkins (Vice Principal with responsibility for Initial Teacher Education)ptomkins@montsaye.northants.sch.uk - at Montsaye Academy.
