Do you want to teach in a happy, diverse and successful school?  Whether you are taking the first step or the next step in your career, St Osmund’s can offer you the dynamic, forward-thinking and supportive environment to continue to grow your skills.

At our school we want you to be able to get on with the most important job – teaching your class and impacting on learning. 

We have worked hard to remove unnecessary tasks from your responsibilities, and we have ensured that only the most meaningful assessment takes place.  At St Osmund’s, we don’t spend time giving written feedback in books after school because we believe that in-lesson feedback is what has the most impact.  We keep meetings to a minimum and we give you the time to work with your colleagues to develop each other’s practice.
