Things done well make the best memories

Sir Norton Knatchbull - 1637


The Norton Knatchbull School is blessed with an amazing, hard-working and dedicated team. We, as a school, strongly believe in investing in people and helping them grow. We support our employees in career development and respect initiative and ambition.  Staff progression is actively monitored through a thorough Performance Management Review (PMR) and constant opportunities for personal development are offered with our Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

As well as formal and informal training, we offer coaching, mentoring and peer support to ensure the progression of our staff. We always encourage staff to obtain new qualifications and actively support career progression. SLT have an open door policy should staff need to discuss anything on a one to one basis. Last but not least, we encourage staff to attend in-house "Well Being" sessions to learn new hobbies (photography, yoga...) or just relax with colleagues.
