What skills and experience we're looking for

Key to the role will be learning what engages each pupil, how they learn and how they are motivated, channelling these factors into how you teach each subject, so that every pupil gets the most out of every day. You will inspire your pupils to enjoy a range of subjects, bringing each lesson to life, engaging them in a love of learning.

We are looking for outstanding teachers, who are dedicated to the welfare, safeguarding and achievement of every child; who wants to make a difference and knows the pathway that will allow pupils to do so.

If you have not worked in SEN before, but are enthusiastic and motivated to make the move, we will give you additional training and provide support. Experience of teaching exams would be beneficial for the secondary department. Teachers in their early career are welcome to apply.

If you would like to join an enthusiastic, friendly and hardworking team then we look forward to receiving your application, please make it clear if you are applying for Primary/Secondary or both.
