This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Teacher who wishes to join a passionate team who are striving to change the concept of a traditional academy setting. You will have a unique opportunity to grow your own career, while every day sharing your time with children who only recognise what they can do and not what they ‘can’t’, in a place where you will learn more than you teach.
