Great teaching starts with great staff.

With over three hundred years of innovative education behind us, we combine upholding our heritage and traditions with a firm focus on future. As a school utilising a unique educational structure based over two sites, we embrace technology and change, but we know the true strength of a school community lies in its staff.

The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) recently rated the Schools as excellent at both the Senior Schools and Sixth Form (May 2019) and the Junior School and Nursery (January 2020), so we know we're on the right track.

As well as the teaching staff, we have a strong senior leadership team who work closely with our very active governing body. Behind the scenes, a team of dedicated staff work hard to support the Schools. There is support and admin staff, estates staff, counsellors and a psychological therapist, a nurse, a chaplain, catering staff and cleaning staff who are all doing their bit. 

At Dame Allan's Schools, we consider ourselves a family with a strong sense of community spirit. Every single person within the Dame Allan's family is an integral part of our successes. We'd love for you to join us!
