  • be passionate about teaching and learning, with the ability to inspire and motivate
  • be an innovative and reflective practitioner who is keen to learn and develop your practice based on instructional coaching and other feedback, training and reading
  • be committed to a research-based approach to teaching and learning
  • have a positive and ‘can do’ attitude
  • be a team player who can work effectively and collaboratively with other colleagues

We can offer you:

  • an excellent Early Career Framework and professional development programme delivered by highly experienced colleagues
  • wonderful, enthusiastic and well-behaved pupils who are extremely keen to learn
  • a generous PPA allowance
  • high adult-to-child ratios

  • a school that genuinely invests in people
  • complimentary refreshments from our Staff Lounge
  • ­a free lunchtime meal provided by our onsite catering team
  • subsidised wraparound care for your children
  • a Health Cash Plan, including subsidised dental and optical care

Further details about the role

Applications from both experienced colleagues and Early Career Teachers are equally and warmly welcomed.

We can offer successful Early Career Teachers the opportunity to start their induction with us in July 2023 to ensure they are very well prepared to teach their first class in September.
