What skills and experience we're looking for

What the school offers its staff

This school is a truly special place. Pupils flourish here’ Ofsted March 2022.

Is your perception that, as a boys’ grammar school, we will be overly traditional, elitist and purely an exam factory? Think again! If you love the art of teaching and want to work in a school where you can take risks in how you teach in order to develop your craft then Lawrence Sheriff School may well be the place for you.

Lawrence Sheriff School is an outstanding boys’ grammar school of approximately 1140 students, around 425 of whom are in our coeducational sixth form. As a National Teaching School, we have played a significant role in initial teacher training and continuous professional development across the region. Our Teaching School Hub status also enables us to offer all staff varied and interesting opportunities to enhance their practice. We have recentlybeen designated as one of only fifteen national MFL Hubs.

'This school is a truly special place. Pupils flourish here’ (Ofsted, 2022).

Lawrence Sheriff School is a boys’ grammar school with a co-education sixth form. We have approximately 1080 students, over 380 of whom are in the sixth form. We believe that much of our success - including our consistently high Ofsted grading and our high rankings in DFE performance tables - can be directly linked to our emphasis upon LSS being a happy place to work for both pupils and staff. The 2022 Ofsted report goes on to say that ‘the passion that pupils have for their learning is palpable’ and 'there is a clear culture of mutual respect between staff and students'.These comments sum up the distinctive ethos and values of the school. As a National Teaching School, we have played a significant role in initial teacher training and continuous professional development across the region. Our Teaching School Hub status now enables us to offer all staff varied and interesting opportunities to enhance their practice.
