our teachers

A commitment to caring and lifelong learning Oxford English School is committed to recruiting teachers who are highly experienced, dedicated, and passionate about their subject and age range, and excited by the prospect of working within a dynamic, diverse community.

Open-minded and curious, our teachers make discoveries between subjects, forming connections across disciplines. Classroom practices emphasize active, collaborative learning. Team-building activities, workshops, conferences and lectures by leading educators are among the initiatives we employ to develop our staff's teaching skills.

Professional development is an ongoing priority, as we strongly believe that a school flourishes when its teachers are committed to lifelong learning. In identifying potential staff we take into consideration their professional experience, their formal education, their length of tenure at their previous schools and their ongoing commitment to professional development. We are fortunate to have an outstanding team of teaching staff, with a tremendous experience base and background.

In short, our professional standards and expectations are high, and the support in place for our teachers is substantial.
