Our Staff

Our teachers

Our teaching faculty comes from all over the globe bringing with them the knowledge and experience of international teaching techniques and standards. All of our teachers have international teaching qualifications. Many of our faculty have been with us for more than 4 years, watching students grow from Kindergarten through our elementary. Our close community means every teachers on campus knows every student in the school, our afternoon program incorporates a rotation of teachers, so our students benefit from being taught by every teacher in the school in their specialist area, subjects ranging from ballet to coding.

Kindergarten teachers

When we recruit teachers we first make sure that they meet our standard requirements, clean police record, international teaching qualifications and highly experienced, but to make a cohesive, nurturing environment we look for those extra qualities that make our faculty truly unique. All of our teachers have different skills and extra curricular expertise, from ballet to art, from football to coding, from drama to baking, our teachers all bring something extra to our team.
