Thank you for your interest in working at Pilgrims School. We nurture a child’s inherent curiosity and creativity to provide the best possible educational start.  Every aspect of our school from the design of our buildings, to the way that we teach focuses on letting children be children while helping them to flourish.

We understand the diverse needs of family life and aim to establish a mutual trust and understanding between family and home.  In addition to the school curriculum, we offer a range of extra-curricular activities throughout the academic year to further encourage and support the children’s curiosity, creativity and passion to complement what they learn during the school day.

As a team we continuously strive to achieve an outstanding level of care and education for every pupil.
