About our

Our teachers and class assistants come from a variety of different backgrounds.  Some have worked in the industry, studied at University or taught for many years.  Others have come 'up the ranks' and gone from student, to volunteer, to assistant to teacher.   

All of our teachers have Child Protection training, First Aid at Work, and enhanced DBS checks. Our Assistants receive their own training and most also have Junior First Aid certificates too.
