Our core values of Kindness, Honesty, Empathy, Respect and Responsibility permeate all that we do at school and are embedded in our ethos.

As part of the interview process, we would like to visit applicants to see them teach in their own schools (if at all possible) or watch a video of them teaching if that is preferable (subject to necessary permissions and CV-19 restrictions). If neither of these options are possible, lessons can be arranged here at Outwoods Edge.
