Professional Development

We seek to recruit and retain committed, dedicated professionals who will collaborate closely with their colleagues and reflect upon their roles in the classroom. It is therefore expected that teachers will continue to develop themselves as professionals whilst they are employed at the school. 

The school wishes to:

  • promote life-long learning
  • further develop skills as effective teachers
  • raise awareness towards a deeper understanding of teaching and learning
  • keep abreast of educational developments and initiatives
  • create a productive and positive school culture
  • initiate and sustain school improvement
  • encourage networking between colleagues in like-minded schools
  • encourage a stable teaching staff and contract renewal

Support for CPD

The school has a significant budget to support the Continued Professional Development (CPD) of teachers in the following ways.

In-house CPD

Our in-house professional development activities include:

New Staff inductions – At the beginning of each academic year for new teachers

Teacher Days – The school is open for 8 teacher days without students each academic year. A variety of educational activities are organised during this time including department or whole school CPD. Some of these may involve the use of external CPD providers.

Lesson Observations – During the year, each teacher will be observed formally by a senior or middle manager.  The purpose of these observations is to evaluate teachers’ performance and to offer, where necessary, suggestions for further skill development as well as to inform discussions about career development.

Weekly Professional Meetings – Throughout the year, specific areas may be identified for development and in-house expertise can be shared with colleagues.  A time has been set aside each Tuesday after school during which workshops or information dissemination can take place.

Off-campus CPD

We often receive notification of formal CPD opportunities being offered in the region and will take advantage of them as appropriate, eg A Level/IGCSE/IPC regional courses.

There are also a vast number of opportunities through Nord Anglia University, the online resource bank run by NAE.

Advanced Qualifications

We will support a limited number of teachers who wish to study towards advanced qualifications like an MA, MBA, NPQH. Applications should be made to the Principal.
