As such, we expect all of our staff to be actively involved in all aspects of school life through their participation in extracurricular activities and in our programme of events and activities which are planned throughout the school year. We have a strong commitment to child-centred learning and to addressing the specific needs of each individual pupil so that they can each be guided and encouraged towards achieving their maximum potential. The successful candidate should have experience of teaching across the ability range and recognise the importance of providing effective pastoral care. As in all St George’s Schools, we follow an
