Staff

Our staff have a wealth of experience and all share the common goal to instill a love of learning in our pupils.

In the Lower School there is one teacher and one classroom assistant per class.  In the Upper years there is one teacher per class.  We have specialist teachers for French, Music, Drama, Dance, Sport and SEND (special educational needs and disabilities).  Some run additional after-school clubs, including Spanish and Chess.
