Teaching Staff

We have twenty one teachers working in fifteen classes with two classes in each year group. In 2015/16 to meet the demand for school places we created an additional class in our Reception year group. Our teachers are all fully qualified and work very collaboratively in their year group teams. We have a great mix of staff from very experienced teachers to newly qualified teachers. Together we make an outstanding teaching team.
