  • Be a skilled communicator who can share and develop their vision

If so, we can offer you:

  • Wonderful, enthusiastic children (not just our view – ask our visitors), who are eager to learn and love their school
  • Caring, dedicated and hardworking staff, who welcome new ideas
  • A very well resourced school, with exciting plans in place for its future growth
