My NQT experience at King Edward’s has been overwhelmingly positive. The staff within my department, as well as in the wider school have been really supportive and I have gained advice from many different staff. It seems there is a nice blend of experienced staff who can help you out, but also some young staff who have recently had to adapt to the way the school works and what the students are like.
The best aspect of the school for me this year has been the behaviour and attitude of the students. They really are a joy to teach and I have always felt relaxed about trying new T+L strategies. Furthermore, the trip opportunities really are a real perk of the job for me. I appreciate they aren’t for everybody but I have really enjoyed that opportunity. Sam Brennan, History NQT
