This is an outstanding opportunity for someone who wants to join a high performing school and gain significant experience to further enhance their career, like one of our staff members:

“I was initially employed at Sandringham in 2020 as an NQT on a fixed term contract the English department. The following year, I worked at a different school for one year and then returned to work at Sandringham when a permanent post became available. My role has developed over time, with my recent appointment to be KS4 Intervention Lead in English, an exciting role created for me as my new found love of data developed! One of the many reasons I enjoy working at Sandringham is the number of opportunities for development on offer. I'm currently undertaking an NPQ in Leading Teaching, an exciting opportunity that is providing me with the pedagogy and underpinning theory that drives so many aspects of leading teaching. I'm lucky enough to draw on knowledge and expertise from staff across the school, in teaching and support roles, not just during my NPQ but daily.” – Rhiannon, English Teacher
