  • Quality professional development in-house, through Wandle Teaching School Hub (which we have strong ties with) and first-class external providers and speakers (Equaliteach, Football Beyond Borders, Imperial College, Craig Barton, Teacher Development Trust, UCL, to name but a few recent liaisons). For more details, please see our Professional Development page.
  • Clear progression pathways and ample leadership opportunities
  • Distributed leadership: our middle leaders in collaboration with their teams make all important decisions. Every department is in charge of their own curriculum, policies (marking, home learning, remote learning) and timetabling.
  • Comprehensive Wellbeing Program
  • Workload Reduction
  • Promoting Diversity, Inclusion and Equity
  • Staff autonomy: we are committed to ensuring that teacher autonomy does not end on their exiting their classroom. Because we see our staff body as an endless pool of expertise, experience and energy, we provide ample opportunities to both teaching and support staff to express their views, lead on change and engage in collective problem-solving
  • Support Staff Council ensures our support staff’s needs are heard and met
