It is an exciting time at Russell Lower School! Following a £4m+ build and refurbishment, we are expanding to meet the growing demands of our local population. We have invested heavily to ensure that our school is a high quality learning environment for the children and a wonderful place for staff to work. Promoting the well-being of our staff and children is a high priority.


Children love learning at Russell Lower School and thrive, achieving good standards, in our warm and friendly environment. We had our ‘Good’ Ofsted grading confirmed recently (November 2016) where it was noted:


“Pupils say they love school…they say teachers are good and fun, they get support if they need it, teachers encourage them to do high-level work and they learn a lot, everyone gets along.”


We are seeking to appoint two highly talented, passionate, motivated, caring, creative and enthusiastic members of staff to join our friendly, professional and supportive teaching team during 2018. *As our school continues to grow, we believe that there may be on-going opportunities beyond the period of maternity cover.


Only teachers who care passionately about children and their progress need apply!
