This isn’t just any teaching job. This is the opportunity to be part of something amazing, to improve the life chances of children and to accelerate your career at a phenomenal rate.

A fantastic opportunity has arisen to join a very successful, vibrant, popular and happy school that is part of a large, dynamic and supportive Trust. You will be joining a school that has children from Nursery age all the way through to Year 6. The teaching position will be based across the school, in both Key stages 1 and 2. Our ethos is very child-centered and like our Trust we constantly strive to provide our children with exceptional opportunities, not just within the classroom but in the wider curriculum of our school. For example, winning local sports tournaments, writing Haikus for international competitions, interviewing our local MP, not to mention numerous performances throughout the year!

We are very much an integral part of the local community, with great relationships with our families, community groups and other local schools. For the last 10 years, we have been over-subscribed and many parents actively choose to transfer their children to us if and when a space occurs.

There are 3 key parts of our ethos: Grow, Persevere and Aspire. These encapsulate our purpose in preparing our children for a life of learning and to grow into confident, positive, responsible members of modern British society.

Our staff team is very friendly, skilled, experienced and highly committed. We want someone to join us who believes that going that extra mile and making a difference to children’s life chances is a pleasure.

We would like to hear from great teachers, with primary experience and a genuine commitment to improving the life chances of the children they teach.

NQT applicants are welcome to apply and will be fully supported via our experienced team.
