They are also vetted and are recognised by the Department for Education. It is our requirement that teachers undergo a CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) check.
All teachers are currently teaching or have recently taught in secondary schools and each teacher has years of teaching experience as a successful Classroom Teacher and in some cases as an Examiner.
How we hire our teachers
We use the same method that all independent and state schools in this country and many international schools use to recruit teachers. Advertisements are placed in the Times Educational Supplements (TES).
Applicants are short-listed after we have obtained references, which usually includes the head-teacher of the school where the applicant currently teaches. Applicants undergo a rigorous interviewing process. We aim to get the best and most committed teachers, regardless of where they live. Almost half our teachers live outside London - they come from as far away as Bristol and Lancashire to teach our students.
