Teachers and Teaching Assistants

The Head and all staff work closely together. Teachers are fully involved in pastoral care, contact with parents and extra-curricular activities, in addition to their teaching commitments. Teaching assistants play a valuable role in the classrooms and each year group has dedicated help. Our office staff, facilities team and catering personnel scaffold onto the framework in which effective teaching and learning takes place.
