Teaching at College

Although we have high expectations of our teachers, we also make a commitment to help them be at their best. We can guarantee a stimulating, interesting and collegial work environment.

The Centre for Teaching Excellence & Research promotes continuous improvement in teaching and learning through a dedicated professional learning programme, supporting and empowering our teaching staff to improve their practice through reflection and coaching, as well as providing access to external professional learning opportunities. Our membership of Round Square and the International Boys’ School Coalition provides opportunities for professional growth, networking, trips, teacher exchanges, conferences and courses all over the world. In addition, College has forged partnerships with schools in a number of countries and regularly hosts or takes students on sporting and cultural trips abroad.
