Here’s what our teachers have to say about what it’s like to work at Frimley.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Frimley so far – it is hard to imagine working anywhere else! Support has been relevant and ever present in my career so far and it is great to be surrounded by such friendly, enthusiastic and dedicated professionals who know how to have fun as well – sometimes I feel it is like a second family! I look forward to many more years here.” NQT and now Middle Leader
“I came to Frimley to begin my Middle Leadership amongst a large number of changes brought about by the innovative new head. I could not have wished to join a more perfect school to further my own career development and better my practice. All members of SLT have helped me on my journey in both teaching and leadership, offering CPD and advice. I feel extremely well supported and am grateful for all the opportunities I have been given to progress at Frimley.” Middle Leader
“Frimley is a lovely place to work. The staff are friendly and supportive of each other and the school is small enough to foster relationships with a large majority of the pupils, which provides a real community feel as you get to know them as individuals. As soon as I joined the school, I felt that there was a very welcoming atmosphere, evident even on interview day, and I felt like I was a valued member of the team from the start. I have been well-supported in my career development and genuinely feel like I have made some good friends.” Classteacher
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my NQT experience at Frimley, from beginning to end. The values held at Frimley are not only applied to the children but to the staff. Staff are appreciated and I was quickly made to feel that I was a member of the team. From the onset, I was made aware that everyone wanted me to be successful and I have felt that I could ask anyone anything. At Frimley, there is a ‘can do’ attitude underlying the day to day work which impacts everyone. We all aim to help each other, whether it is in a teaching, administrative or supportive role. Taking advantage of this openness, I have felt I could ask anyone if I could observe their teaching and this has been arranged painlessly. As a result I have been able to develop my own learning more deeply. Of course it hasn’t been completely plain sailing and there have been times when I have felt I needed to go over things more than once so I have understood better. Both my year leaders have been fully supportive and patient. Also this is a safe environment to take a risk. Children are encouraged to have a go, and it is also appropriate for staff to do this as well. When I tried a couple of different things in my observations, one worked whilst the other was less successful. However, the leadership approach is to emphasise the positives and as such I felt more able to overcome any difficulty and persevere. Now in my final half term of my NQT, I feel a lot more confident in my practice. I am in an unusual situation, in that I have actually taught other year 3 cohorts part time before commencing my NQT induction. It is only after taking on this position full-time that I now feel confident to develop my career in teaching and even start planning for how I may take on a leadership position in the future, should an opportunity arise.” NQT
