Our staff will be led by Headteacher, Tristram Hobson. Mr Hobson comes to us from the highly successful St Edmund’s School in Salisbury, where he was Deputy Head. He brings with him a passion and commitment to outstanding teaching and learning in an ambitious, caring and inclusive school.
Our newly appointed Deputy Headteacher is Jenny Maraspin, currently Assistant Headteacher in charge of the quality of teaching and learning at the Leaf Academy in Bournemouth, which came top of the league table in Bournemouth for Value Added score, which shows how much progress students make. Miss Maraspin starts working with us full-time after Easter.
In line with the vision and ethos of The Swanage School we have recruited a team of outstanding, fully qualified teaching staff, eager to make their mark on a new and ambitious local school. Full details of all staff will be made available soon.
We want The Swanage School to be a pleasure to teach in and in addition to an attractive package of pay and conditions, we will provide support and encouragement for continual professional development.
The exciting opportunity to be involved in a human scale school with high aspirations in one of England's most beautiful coastal areas has attracted teachers dedicated to their students and passionate about their subjects.
