Perks & Benefits
Without the remarkable talent and impeccable standards of our staff we would not be the exceptional school we are today.
We value our staff and want to give back. That's why we offer a package of perks and benefits, to help make daily lives easier. And help with the odd treat where we can.
Here are just some examples of what we offer. Staff are also regularly sent the details of business discounts and services that visit the school.
Hump Week celebrations Breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea - you choose your preferred activity and we come together as a staff community in the middle week of the half term. A little social treat for everyone.
TeacherPerks.co.uk We're a member of this fabulous discount and added benefits site. Top brands give back to school staff, from Expedia and Hotels.com, to Curry's, EE and The AA. Whatever department you sit in, whether you teach, manage or support our school administratively, you can access this perk. Sign up here: TeacherPerks.co.uk
Buddies Each new academic year we kick start our Buddy system, arranging for all staff members who takes part to receive a buddy in secret, and to be a buddy for another unknown colleague. We exchange regular gifts and pick-me-ups from a list of preferences and interests, and we all smile a little more. It's the simple things that count.
Local discounts We bring added benefits to our staff from a variety of service and product providers.
Onsite Services We'd love to bring in regular services like dry cleaning, massage therapy, beauticians, fitness and more. Are you interested? Do you have a suggestion? Please let us know.
O2 Discount! If you’re a state-funded teacher in the UK, then good news – you’re eligible for O2 Open. This includes if you work at a state-funded school, academy, free school, college or sixth form, but not at a higher education institution like a university. To add the discount, visit our O2 Open page and follow the instructions under ‘How to claim your O2 Open discount’. Your five-character O2 Open code is TEACH. When you’re asked to submit a copy of your payslip, you can either do this or you can choose to submit a copy of your ID badge, showing your name and the name of your employer, instead. Just follow the instructions in the My O2 Open portal to submit one of these.
Social Scene We know our staff value their relationships with their colleagues, and it's not always easy to have a catch up during school hours. So, we organise regular Friday night drinks in a local pub, rounders after school and break time cake. Plus, we'd like to start going further afield on occasional theatre trips, meals out and more. Do you have inspiration? Want to get involved in organising something? Let us know.
