Our parents are supportive and ambitious for their children, and our reputation in the locale has grown. The academy is an increasingly popular school in the rapidly growing Ebbsfleet Garden City community.

In return, WHAT we offer you?

• We practice work life balance

• Our teachers use their time to plan exciting lessons and to discuss the best way to teach a topic

• We don't have unnecessary meetings or unnecessary paperwork 

• We expect teachers to enjoy and to relish every minute of their well-earned holiday.
