Mrs Beardmore - Music Teacher & Form Tutor
“I have worked at Gretton School since 2015. Not only does the school provide great challenges and opportunities for teachers in terms of curriculum development and planning but also it provides a great sense of pride and achievement in your work. In the twenty years that I’ve been a teacher, I’ve not worked anywhere where you feel so valued for your skills and ideas.
Gretton staff are very much a squad and motivate and encourage everyone in all aspects, both in school and socially. Gretton School encourages and cares about your work-life balance. This understanding of the pressures of family life is one of the many reasons that I love being a part of Gretton. After working in mainstream education for 17 years, this approach, alongside the real opportunity to educate fantastic students, is both refreshing and inspiring.”
Mrs Taylor O'Farrell - DT Teacher & KS3 Leader
“I can say without any hesitation, how much I love my role here at Gretton. Leaving mainstream education and coming to a school where the entire focus is to promote progression and individualise support for the unique learner; feels like I have found my ultimate niche. Every day I learn something new and incredible about ASC and other associated conditions. I work with some of the brightest most intelligent minds, who just happen to see the world slightly differently to me; who in turn, have helped me develop strategies for my profoundly autistic son. I am the happiest I have been in my entire career.”
Mr Watkins - Exams Officer & KS4 Form Tutor
