Find out how our teachers and staff help instil a lifelong love of learning and confidence in our happy children.

Teachers and staff

All teachers at Prospect House School share one firm belief: nurturing individuality is the most empathetic and effective way to allow children to reach their potential. 

To ensure personal attention, the ratio of staff to pupils is high. Without exception our teachers are highly qualified and ably supported by our carefully chosen team of teaching assistants. 

We have an extensive range of specialist teachers covering maths, English, computing, French, music, physical education, art/design technology and Latin. 

Other highly-trained staff are available to identify and support children who may display specific learning needs. If appropriate, specialist staff such as speech therapists are also available to work with pupils.
