Working at Woodmansterne 







Working at Woodmansterne is never dull. Creative ideas are listened to and considered and challenge is encouraged. Staff here are keen and confident to go the extra mile, knowing that their input is valued and respected.  Woodmansterne is a special place, ask anyone who has walked through our doors, the learning environment is calm and enriched; pupils, staff and parents are happy.  Our goal is simple, to ‘achieve excellence together’, we do this by supporting each other and a relentless focus on inspiring our young people (and each other) to be the very best version of themselves that they can be. 

Woodmansterne is at very exciting stage of its development, our secondary building has recently won an award for technological architecture from CIAT and we are now working towards educating sixth formers.

Working closely across phases has ensured cohesion between staff, a greater understanding of effective transition and how children learn and flourish. Our children across both phases have been able to share experiences and develop a strong and united voice. It has been a pioneering journey, one that we have embraced as a community, we have learnt from each other, risen to challenges and overcome obstacles together. As we move to the next stage of our development we intend to protect and the uniqueness of our cross phase community and all-through provision. 

Working closely with our families and the wider community is something we are passionate about, we have links with the local food bank, run a community fridge, host community events for local elderly residents and in the future will be sharing our wonderful new facilities with the local community.

As a Woodmansterne staff member, you can expect regular and relevant professional development, opportunities to work across phases, be creative and risk taking in your teaching, work closely with colleagues in planning and training.  You will be an integral part of this wonderful school and supported by an experienced and supportive leadership team.
