School Direct

School direct is a route into teaching.

You can find out more by following this link.

Alumwell Nursery School is part of the School Direct for the Walsall Nursery School Alliance.

Alumwell Nursery School is part of the Walsall cluster. We work closely together to recruit teachers and provide a career path within our cluster. School direct students with us will spend time in other cluster schools, to gain experience in other phases.


We work in partnership with Wolverhampton University to deliver the programme. During their time with us our students gain:

  • A PGCE in primary teaching.
  • Qualified Teacher Status.
  • 60 credits at Master's level.
  • A wonderful experience working with our delightful children and families.
