School Experience Testimonials
“Thanks so much for having me at The Hollins.
The opportunity of visiting the school, observing some lessons and talking to such a great group of teachers was extremely valuable and enlightening for me.
I will be looking to go through ITT and start a career in teaching in the near future. It’s certainly an exciting path ahead.”

I would just like to thank you for letting me come in to Hollins today for my school experience, I really enjoyed it, had plenty to note down and have learnt a lot of useful things.
The staff couldn’t have been nicer to me and the students were really polite and lovely which has made today a great experience for me, as well as getting to know the English curriculum better and being able to observe the structure of classes.
