Comments from staff who have joined us in recent years
“SHS is a wonderful place to work. Since starting in September, staff have been extremely welcoming, helpful and approachable. I have learnt a variety of new teaching strategies by observing staff in other departments and during CPD sessions. Students’ behaviour and attitude to learning are outstanding. There is a real sense of community and pride within the school. I am proud to work at SHS.”
“Spalding High School is an industrious hive of bright minds (students and staff alike) where high academic standards are thoughtfully balanced with the social and emotional wellbeing of students (and teachers). Continuous professional development is encouraged, and good practice is shared as a matter of course. It is a privilege to be a teacher (and middle leader) in such a caring and progressive school.”
“I have loved my time here at SHS so far. Everyone has been so welcoming and helpful. The atmosphere is great; the staff and students clearly enjoy coming here! The induction day in July was super - gained lots of information, and felt ready to start in September. It’s always nice to speak to colleagues outside the department and there is always someone to listen and give you time, and an answer! I grew up in this area, went away to university, and have since returned. I couldn't be more positive about my transition here, it's the best choice I ever made.”
“If you are passionate about your subject, this is definitely the place to teach. The students are enthusiastic and focused. They enjoy being given the opportunity to work independently and creatively. Behaviour and attitude to learning is outstanding.
"SHS has a community feel to it because it is quite small. Staff are always approachable and willing to help. Great support from my mentor and the induction process was very good.”
“There is a real sense of team spirit here. The peer lesson observations gave me the chance to see outstanding practice in subjects I have never been to before. I feel the School is a place where staff are valued and encouraged to reflect all the time.”
