We are a tight-knit unit striving for the very best for our students and we are focussed on and passionate about learning.

We genuinely care about our staff, their well-being and their professional development: we are a happy team, committed to working collaboratively and sharing the very best practice and, amongst other things, we can offer:

 A laptop for every teacher
 Timetabled Work from Home (WFH) sessions
 Regular staff well-being activities
 Free access to our sporting facilities

If you are a trainee and looking for a post from September 2022, we would love to hear from you. We also have a strong track record of leadership development and succession planning and would be interested in an ambitious candidate who is keen to progress to leadership in the future.

As a Performing Arts College our commitment to the arts is strong and there is always something stunning going on in our Masque Theatre: you might see a rehearsal, stumble across an impromptu performance in the foyer or be part of the audience at an evening concert. Expect the unexpected and the amazing - because that is what you will get! We value the contributions that our staff make to student outcomes and support them with being able to meet our high expectations through a co-ordinated performance management system for both teaching and non-teaching staff, with professional development at its heart.
