TEACHING AT LANCASTER SCHOOL

Why are you a teacher? What do you find most satisfying in teaching? Answering this question should help in deciding whether you would enjoy working at Lancaster School.

Teaching at Lancaster School can be tremendously rewarding but is also a challenge. While we are rightly proud that many of our graduates go on to university we do not measure the school’s success through academic performance. Central to the school’s philosophy and practice is the recognition that our educational project focuses on helping our students discover who they are and who they want to be. As a community we welcome diversity in all its forms and the complexity that goes with this.

We encourage teachers to build positive relationships with their students and to always model the school’s values: respect, tolerance, responsibility, honesty, cooperation and community spirit.

To be happy and successful at Lancaster teachers need to be: passionate about what they teach, be open minded, and be reflective. They also need to be adaptable and believe that learning is a process, not a task.
