Terra Nova School is committed to ensuring the very best education for all of our students. In September 2019 Terra Nova reintroduced full boarding provision to sit alongside our day and flexi boarding offer. Our desire was to increase the cultural diversity within our community.
Language is at the heart of every community and an increasing number of our students require further English language support in order to achieve highly in both academic studies and their social development. As such we are looking to appoint an EAL specialist, initially on a part-time basis.
For those looking for a full time position we are able to consider people who can also offer other subjects; particularly geography, sport or general primary class teachers.
