Come and join our happy, welcoming and supportive Russell team.  We would love to show you around our impressive school and community.


Russell Lower School has been constantly expanding over the last few year 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 and happiness of our staff and children is a high priority.


Children love learning at Russell Lower School and thrive, achieving good standards, in our warm, caring and friendly environment.  We have had our ‘Good’ Ofsted grading confirmed 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 highly talented, passionate, motivated, caring, creative and enthusiastic members of staff to join our friendly, professional and supportive teaching team.  In return, we can offer you a school with a supportive leadership team and a genuine focus on well-being.


Only ‘can do’ teachers who care passionately about children and their progress need apply!  Visits to our school are warmly encouraged.
