Values for life


Firstly, we pride ourselves on the warmest of welcomes to all new staff, including a comprehensive staff induction programme and mentoring scheme, which is a stepping stone to familiarisation with all that goes on at the school. At Gidea Park College we believe that our strongest asset is our staff - and we care about offering inclusion in a stimulating environment, with a rewarding benefits package.

Details of working hours, salary and holidays are provided in the job description for each vacancy - these will vary depending on the nature of the job and whether the role is full- or part-time. In addition to the standard Teacher Pension package that is offered to teaching staff, Gidea Park offers support staff the opportunity to enrol into its Group Pension Scheme.

There is a thriving extra-curricular programme at Gidea Park, in which staff are encouraged to be involved. These activities can be run during the lunchtime period or as part of after-school clubs.

Discounted pupil fees for children of staff is offered in many cases and is dependent upon hours worked over the academic year.

Professional development is key for all involved in the Gidea Park staff room and this runs in line with the school aim of achieving teaching and general excellence.

Teachers use wide and varied teaching methods, both traditional and modern.
