Vacancies Work for us
Employing exceptional individuals is the key to providing an exceptional education for our students, and we aim to recruit members of staff who are leading practitioners in their fields or who show outstanding potential. As well as appointing experienced staff from top independent and maintained schools, we also train those new to the profession recruited directly from university or those who have been successful in another career and seek a new challenge.
Professional development is at the heart of our approach and time and resources are available to our staff whatever the stage of their career. Further academic study is possible and both teaching and non-teaching colleagues have been supported to complete vocational qualifications and higher degrees, including Ph.Ds. Many of our staff publish pedagogical research and present at academic conferences, represent sports at national and international level, are governors at other schools and influence national educational policy. Five members of staff are fellows of the Chartered College of Teaching. Middle leaders are provided with specific management training including the Independent Schools’ Qualification in Academic Management and the Pastoral Leadership Qualification. We provide workshops to shine a light on the many aspects of running a busy school and host and speak at a number of training conferences run by external organisations such as the GSA and HMC.
Teachers collaborate in learning communities focusing on specific aspects of learning and teaching such as assessment, cognitive processes and pastoral support. We share research and good practice and support each other by co-planning, observing lessons and sharing ideas through our Teaching and Learning blog.
We are also a fun and sociable community who organise social and cultural events including: staff vs student netball, football and basketball matches; regular and free boxercise, yoga, pilates, acupressure massage and social badminton sessions; staff choir and concerts.
