The Gower School is proud of its amazing staff. They are passionate and committed professionals who enjoy rising to the challenges of an ever-developing school in central London.
Our team is large, diverse and varied. It ranges from Montessori teachers, early years practitioners, primary teachers, a range of assistants plus an army of lunch-time assistants and helpers, to our wonderful catering staff and our friendly, efficient administration team. They are all experienced with a range of qualifications from Masters and Bachelor degrees to Montessori teaching diplomas, NNEB and NVQ III. All our staff working with food are trained in Food Hygiene whether they are chefs, catering assistants or staff working mainly with children.
All our team have to undergo rigorous identity checks such as Barred List/List99 check (the national list of people barred from working with children) and through an enhanced DBS (the national Disclosure and Barring Service) check, which is online and re-checked regularly. We take up at least two references on every member of staff following our extensive recruitment procedure.
The Gower School prides itself on its very high ratio of staff working directly with children. The level exceeds levels set by Ofsted, so our children get lots of individual attention.
We also invest heavily in our staff team both in terms of Continuing Professional Development and sponsoring staff through longer-term qualifications. This ensures that The Gower School is a great place to work and that our skills and knowledge are updated constantly.
