We have an excellent reputation with the local universities for training teachers. This year, we are undertaking the teacher training of three graduates. Most of our teachers have been trained via this route. This way we can ensure the high calibre.

Most of the time, the children are taught by their class teacher, but there are other arrangements in place when the teachers have their non-contact time for planning. At this time, each class is taught by our excellent specialist music teacher and our excellent specialist PE teacher.

In every class there are one or two full-time Teaching Assistants who will frequently teach small groups and individuals under the direction of the class teacher.
