Laxton Junior School has an excellent reputation for teaching and learning, with children excelling across the curriculum. We are looking for an outstanding teacher – to join our dedicated and talented team – who embraces professional development and innovation, and has the imagination and energy to inspire a love of learning in every child, enabling each to make the very best progress possible.
