You will be expected to readily build excellent relationships with students and to relish working alongside them and their families in order to ensure that they thrive and achieve. You should genuinely revel in working with young people. Outstanding learning and teaching lie at the heart of every successful school and we place a high premium on this. You will be required to teach as part of your role.
