Newly Qualified Teachers are supported with a programme run by members of the Senior Leadership Team. Each year we hope to bring in at least three NQTs/ECTs alongside a high number of student teachers to create a learning hub. This hub provides training on a weekly basis for these new to teaching colleagues and is used by other local schools who wish to benefit.

Potential applicants who have children may be interested to hear that our admissions policy offers the opportunity for staff to gain a place for their child at the school. Around 20 colleagues are currently benefitting from places for the children in the school. Most of these would not have secured a place without the staff criteria being in place.
