About the School

Our aim at the Severn Foundation School is to offer a wide range of training opportunities in acute trusts, mental health trusts and primary care. We want our trainees to feel part of a larger training environment and have developed a regional teaching programme for the Foundation Year 2 trainees, giving them an opportunity to receive excellent education and also network with their peers. Education matters, and the Severn PGME education team are developing training courses and materials for faculty throughout the region.

The ethos of the school is to involve the trainees, and we welcome feedback to help us to develop and share best practice. We are aware that making appropriate career decisions is an important part of foundation training, and the deanery is building strong careers support. We are lucky to be in a fantastic location - with lovely countryside and cultural cities - which is the icing on the cake that others will find hard to match.
