I'm in year 13 at the moment but I'm trying to plan ahead, and I really want to do a masters degree before a PGCE. I was wondering if anyone has experience with this, and if anyone knows if it would be possible to get funding or loans for it? Thanks!

I know you can get a student loan and a master loan to cover degree and masters. For PGCE I think you can get separating funding. There are sometimes scholarships for grads with at least a 2.1. There are also bursaries but how much you can get depends on your subject and how many teachers are needed in the subject which given this is for 4 years time could vary from now. Maybe have a look at teach first website it might of use to you

It's possible, yes, as there's separate funding for undergraduate degrees, regular postgraduate degrees and PGCE's

Is there a specific reason why you want to do a Masters?

You are better off doing your first degree, then PGCE. Your PGCE will give you exemptions from 60 Credits from your Masters.

I know a few people who did masters then PGCE- you can still get full funding for your PGCE, which is useful- and if you study a shortage subject, you can also get the bursary.

If you're considering an education related PGCE, you're better off doing things the other way around- as your PGCE credits can count towards your masters.
