Work With Us

An exciting place to be!

Marlborough Road is on an important journey. Staff are committed to improving the life chances of the children in our care by providing the very best education they can. As a team we have moved from being in Special Measures in 2009 to a position where we have been found to be ‘Good’ with ‘Outstanding’ Leadership and Management in our June 2014 Ofsted Inspection.

About Us

Marlborough Road is a two form entry primary school situated in Higher Broughton in Salford. We currently have a ‘bulge class’ in Year 3 and Year 4. We are a five minute journey from Manchester City Centre and the BBC MediaCity.

We take advantage of this position to enhance children’s learning by arranging a variety of trips and visits. Children have had a number of opportunities to take part in BBC children’s shows.

Ours is a diverse community.

Pupils have a wide range of backgrounds and 47 different languages are spoken in the school. Consequently we have a strong emphasis on teaching English as a second language and children make rapid progress. The school is situated in an area of high deprivation; 67% of children are on free school meals. This does not reflect the true need of some of our pupils, as some of our families may not qualify and others are not confident in making claims.

Marlborough Road has a high level of mobility and the school is organised to manage the impact of this. Our children enter Nursery well below age related expectation. We provide full time Nursery provision. This has a very positive impact on children’s learning and their start in school. One of the great pleasures of working at Marlborough Road, is that you know that what you do can make a real difference to children’s learning. Although it can be difficult to work with all the challenges that the children face it can be incredibly rewarding

Train to Teach

COVID-19 update: We are still accepting applications for United Teaching and have moved our entire assessment process online to accommodate this. We're also running online introductory sessions for anyone interested in teacher training - you can find out more and sign up here.

United Teaching is the teacher training programme for United Learning.

We offer you the opportunity to train while you teach, so you can get the teaching qualifications you need without going back to university. You can train for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) on its own, or you can go for a PGCE as well, earning 60 Masters-level credits along the way.

Training with United Teaching gives you real teaching exposure in a choice of schools across the country. We will support you with subject specialists and dedicated mentors from over 80 of our schools nationwide.

About the Course

We offer an immersive programme starting with a two-week summer school in August. You will then spend your training year in your host school with additional training one afternoon each week. Assessment will continue throughout the course, based on your classroom experience and achievement measured against the Teaching Standards, while your PGCE study will consist of two academic assignments, assessed by Goldsmiths, University of London.

In your NQT year, you will continue to receive training, mentoring and professional development opportunities. Our NQTs benefit from twilight training sessions, mentor visits and additional subject-specific support from the Prince's Teaching Institute.
