  • 2 hours of personalised professional learning each week

  • A coaching culture

  • Additional non-contact time for coaching / reading / personal development

  • Shared resources, Schemes of Learning and Curriculum Plans

  • A ‘life-friendly’ approach to teaching

We welcome applications from those who want to work flexibly, or if you are looking for a full-time role.
