We are also a Droichead school. The Droichead process is an integrated professional induction framework for newly qualified teachers (NQTs).

The main objective of the Droichead process is to support the professional learning of the NQTs during the induction phase, thus laying the foundations for subsequent professional growth and learning for the next phase of their career.

We have a fully trained Professional Support Team, who can mentor you through your Droichead process.
