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.

Children love learning at Russell Lower School and thrive in our friendly environment. We had our ‘Good’ Ofsted grading confirmed this year (November 2016) where they 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 from January 2018.

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