This is a great opportunity to work flexibly, and maintain a work-life balance.

This growing and dynamic school provides new challenges for Teachers. The school operates in unique ways, with a focus on giving their students relevant world skills alongside their academic qualifications. Feedback from our Teachers demonstrates the schools ability to inspire and breathe new life into the profession, making it one of our favourite schools to work with.
