16/11/16 - Qualifications for a Primary School Teacher

16/11/16 - Female, 15 :

Hi, I need to choose me A levels in the next couple of days, so need a speedy reply if possible. 

I want to be a primary school teacher and am choosing my A levels. I want to do Drama, Art and English but someone told me I shouldn't do 2 arty subjects.

Can you please find out for me if this is true!

If you check out the Primary School Teacher job profile on the National Careers Service website You will see that you will need,a GCSE (grade A* to C, or grade 4) in English, maths and science or equivalent qualifications.

It would be worth speaking to your careers adviser at school about any additional qualifications you might be interested in.
