“Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope.” – Kofi Annan

Our school is at a really exciting stage of its development and we need teachers who really want to help pupils be successful.Whether you are beginning your career as an ECT or you have been teaching English for decades, it’s your passion for your subject that counts. We prize love of learning above all else.

If it would not be good enough for our own relatives, it is not good enough for our pupils. This is our school’s golden rule.We want the best for every child, regardless of where they were born, how much money they do or don’t have and who they are (gender, race, sex, religion, disability, sexual orientation). That is what drives us.

We want people who are similarly driven. We want people who will not only grow the next generation but also people who are eager to take every opportunity to grow themselves. We offer superb professional development opportunities, including the full suite of NPQs and excellent ECT support that goes well beyond what many schools offer.
