We would also be interested in hearing from ambitious teachers with excellent classroom skills who feel they are ready to apply and train to become Specialist Leaders of Education in order to coach and mentor other teachers and run training as part of the local Schools Alliance.

We consider our school to be an inclusive place of learning for everyone. We offer a highly supportive and friendly staff team. We have successfully supported Early Career Teachers and aspiring leaders of all levels to develop and improve.
