Work For Us

We are committed to being the employer of choice in the area, and understand that great staff directly help our pupils and students reach their full potential for a happy and successful life. Our support for all staff includes our Wellbeing and Workload Charter, investment in CPD at all ages and stages; an additional structure of teacher Professional Pathways, which include strong support for ECTs, NPQs and preparation for the next professional challenge, and; a culture that places carbon reduction towards a net zero position by 2035 at its heart. We believe in investing for all of our futures.

Why work with us?

Since 2019, our Wellbeing and Workload Charter has ensured that we drive workload down with wellbeing being at centre stage. Each year we undertake surveys based on the Charter to confirm we are on the right trajectory, with tweaks made for improvement and successes recognised.
