Specialist and Team Teaching
Much of the teaching throughout the school is done by specialists, even right from the earliest years. Our specialist teachers have an absolute love for their subject, and a passion to share it and to inspire others. For example, our Head of Science is an ex Research Scientist, our Head of Computing is a computer scientist who worked in the software industry for many years, music teachers are themselves regular public performers and children from 2+ (Ducklings) up to 11+ (Year 6) are taught Spanish by a native Spanish speaker. Our staff are learners, too, who regularly undertake extra training and gain further postgraduate qualifications.
We are very well-staffed, with a high ratio of staff to children, and teachers are able to ‘team teach’ some lessons, so that there is more than one teacher facilitating the learning in a class. In addition to our teachers we employ a team of 30 teaching and learning assistants (TALAs) who support the teaching and learning throughout the school.
