WORKING AT FRENSHAM

One of the real differences about Frensham is our open, equal environment. There is no forced deference or demanded respect. We are all in this together. A strong basis of mutual respect and equality creates an innovative, lively place to work. We ask our teachers to be brave with their teaching and we ask our support staff to be more than just supportive. It's an environment that reflects many modern workplaces and allows our students to observe adults working inclusively together and to build their own confidence in working with adults and those in more senior positions.

TEACHING STAFF

As a progressive school, our teachers will find an exciting innovative opportunity to really engage with the students. Their role is not just to disperse knowledge, but to instill lasting learning and skills. Beyond a specific subject, our teachers engage students in cross-curricular projects and social, moral and ethical discussions and above all create genuine, lasting relationships built on mutual respect.

There are currently no vacancies for teaching staff, please check back.

 

SUPPORT STAFF

As a cohesive community, it is just as important that our support staff are onboard with the communal vision and ethos of the school. There are many events throughout the year, not to mention lunchtime everyday, where students, teachers and support staff come together. It's more than just a day job, but something that you can become passionately involved with.
