We are an inclusive family and expect our staff to be passionate about their subject and what it can give to children, adapt their teaching to meet the needs of the students, work proactively to promote good behaviour and to maintain these high standards in their classrooms and around the school. As a small group of staff in a brand-new school, we all have to go the extra mile however, we promote and support a good work life balance, we are a kind and supportive team and we have a lot of fun. If you think you have what it takes then we look forward to hearing from you.
