Staff benefits

We believe our staff are our most important resource within our Trust, and do our best to support and develop them. 

Training and development

Unlike many other schools we have ensured that we still have a ring-fenced budget for staff training and development. With a Teaching School - the Sheffield Teaching School Alliance (STSA) - at our heart, we are able to offer a range of courses - both in house and externally.  STSA has a strong track record of developing teachers at all levels.

As part of the Trust you will be able to take advantage of opportunities working with colleagues at other schools, as well as contribute to our ever-improving practice. When you are ready to take the next step in your career we are sure you will want to stay with us. With many local schools lined up to join Chorus Trust, you will find that you can develop your career within our supportive team.

Terms and conditions

Staff of schools that join our Trust are transferred across under TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings and Protection of Employment). You can find out more about this here.

We follow the national pay and conditions for teaching staff, and the Sheffield pay and conditions for support staff.
