Teachers at Ascot International School are qualified teachers with experience in a range of countries and curricula. Classroom teachers are native English speakers, however some specialists departments have non-native English speakers eg. Music, PE, Thai and Mandarin. All teachers are required to undergo a rigorous application procedure and provide Police checks, references from previous schools and multiple interviews with the school’s senior leadership team. Throughout their time at Ascot, teachers are given many opportunities to improve their teaching through training in school and from outside providers. Every teacher takes part in an annual cycle of appraisal which involves target setting, reflection and observing other teachers in the classroom. Ascot is fully committed to keeping teachers up to date with developments in learning and teaching, which will have a positive effect on every student in the school.
