Are you who we've been looking for?

Your headteacher values you, the families love you and all is rosy in your garden. You are on the recruitment page in a moment of curiosity, perusing the adverts for the makings of an idea and the off-chance that something might tickle your fancy. We want to be your off-chance.

When we offer you this plum job, it will be because of your passion for working with amazing learners, for your premium dream of best learning, for the joy you take from learners learning. In return for your fantastic-ness we will offer you free tea and coffee, a place in our car park (well almost!) a tasty but not over-filling salary, and a berth on the bridge of a super school.

We are looking to appoint full-time class teachers and a full-time maternity cover post to join our outstanding team who can be active learners and practitioners who see fun and adventure as a crucial aspect of the learning experience, who want to bring joy and wonder to the classroom. They will demonstrate innovative and effective teaching skills and be the rock in the lives of our extraordinary children.
