Teaching Staff

All staff at the school are dedicated to maintaining a high level of education and ensuring students’ wellbeing throughout their time at school. With a considerable wealth of experience, each class teacher is well equipped to provide students with stimulating material presented in a creative and engaging way.

Pupils between the ages of 6 and 14 are guided by their respective Class Teacher whilst Upper School students (15-18) enjoy a diverse range of subjects taught by a selection of highly qualified teachers, with carefully planned lessons that include increasing amounts of facilitated independent study as the students near the end of their education.
