We have over twenty teachers, based in class and in support roles, who range from newly qualified to highly experienced teachers, along with over a dozen learning support assistants and support staff. It is a strong and collaborative team.

We have a team of lunchtime staff, including our cooks and catering assistants and our lunchtime supervisors. We have three administrative staff who manage the school office, a site manager and a maintenance assistant, along with a team of cleaners.

We frequently support student teachers and trainees from local further education providers, as well as hosting School Direct trainees who are embarking on their school-based initial teacher training.
