What do our NQTs actually think of Haydon; having done their first term?

"Haydon has been a very supportive and encouraging environment in which to complete my first term as an NQT. All the staff, especially my mentor and PCM, have been ready and willing to provide help, suggestions for lessons and guidance if I was stuck and words of praise and encouragement when I was succeeding. The school greatly prioritises staff well-being which has meant that my first term has lacked in any intense moments of stress or worry. Haydon is a great place to complete your NQT year."

Alice (Drama)

"My first term as an NQT at Haydon has been full of new experiences and challenges. My mentor and the NQT team have been very supportive and have guided me well at all times, I feel very positive about continuing my NQT experience at Haydon School"

 Rowena (Technology) 

"Haydon provides an amazing opportunity to establish and maintain positive relationships with students. In my first term as an NQT, I have learnt the importance of good relationships being at the core of good teaching. If students truly believe you care, the vast majority will work for themselves and for you!"
