The school is innovative and forward-looking, combining a strong focus on academic excellence with a rich co-curricular programme to enable pupils to ‘discover who they are’ and unlock their potential in a school with a strong sense of community.

This is an outstanding opportunity for a high-performing, experienced and ambitious teaching professional to be a key part of the senior team.
