"The CPD provided at Raynes Park is consistently excellent and engaging, provided on a weekly basis from experienced teachers sharing excellent practice and tried and tested strategies for classroom success.

Mentor support is thorough and rigorous to ensure continual progress is made towards better teaching practice.  This is done in the form of feedback following formal observations, weekly mentor meetings and informal guidance and advice within the department from both Mentors and Heads of Department.

Raynes Park is a friendly, lively school, with a supportive atmosphere.  I have thoroughly enjoyed this difficult but highly rewarding journey."
