We empower, encourage and support our teachers to be creative with the curriculum in pursuit of our 5 Cs: Care, Confidence, Creativity, Commitment and Community.

Finding the right person who embodies the Willow Brook ethos is key - we know that recently qualified teachers have just as much energy, presence and determination to give to their role as those who want to develop their skills further in a new environment.

  • maintains a standard in their work that is as high as the expectations set for their class
  • is organised, adaptable and able to demonstrate initiative and team spirit in equal measure
  • can quickly develop effective working relationships with staff and parents
  • has an enthusiasm beyond the classroom – opportunities to develop extra-curricular skills are valued at Willow Brook

  • the time, guidance and support you need to develop your professional skills wherever you are in your career
  • a school where a broad curriculum truly values all subjects and provides time and opportunities for children to make the most of their primary years
  • a busy, positive community where children are genuinely engaged and motivated to achieve their potential
