Our Team

The value we place on our teaching team is directly proportional to our commitment towards our students and their families.

Redbridge School’s educational team is made of teachers who are:

  • Knowledgeable,
  • Experienced,
  • Passionate,
  • Lifelong learners,
  • Fun and enthusiastic,
  • Positive thinkers,
  • Open-minded,
  • Creative,
  • Reflective,
  • Respectful and caring.

All teachers and assistants share a strong interest in languages ​​and innovative pedagogies and work together to achieve a common goal: to inspire creativity, a love of learning and international mindedness through a challenging and joyful multilingual learning environment, where children feel happy, valued and secure.

The relationships between adults and students within our school are founded on communication, understanding and mutual respect.

In addition to organising and monitoring activities within their classes, the teaching team is involved in all day-to-day activities including educational outings, naps, mealtimes and transitional periods between activities.

We believe that learning occurs at anytime and anywhere, particularly outside the classroom when skills may be practised and knowledge applied in a meaningful, real-life context.

The members of our administrative team share a common interest in education and multicultural environments. They are motivated by the desire to provide crucial support to the educational team and are inspired by the mission, values and pedagogical project of the school.

“Do not train children to learning by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.”
