Why work for us?


We are unashamedly ambitious, not only for our children but also for all of our staff. We believe that from the moment teachers begin their ECT year they are leaders; they are leading the learning in their classrooms and the other adults who are there in a supporting role. We actively search out opportunities to develop our teachers' skills in three main areas:

  • Strengthening their own classroom provision
  • Leading whole school developments
  • Supporting other practitioners' provision

When recruiting we look for candidates with strong academic backgrounds + a well-rounded range of interests who understand that teaching is a cerebral activity which requires critical thinking, reflection and resilience to secure the best outcomes for children in the widest possible context. In essence, we want colleagues whose skill-set gives them a choice of employment but who want to be teachers because they believe they have a part to play in securing our future generation's life chances.

The Lumen Learning Trust ECT Offering

We recognise that for an Early Career Teacher (ECT), the task of finding a job starts in earnest many months before you take up a post in September. You will need to select a school which is affordable to live nearby, has good transport links and routes, and one where you won’t feel unsupported or alone. Schools in the Lumen Learning Trust have a very strong package for those who choose to work in one of our schools in Staines, Ashford, Shepperton, Addlestone or Walton. These include:

  • Two weeks paid training in the last two weeks of July.
  • An active and genuine programme of social events.
  • The opportunity to work for additional income at our popular Summer holiday clubs over August.
  • Fully secured ECT PPA time, equating to 20% teaching time in total per week.
  • Strong career progression process from ECT+1.
  • A programme of on-going professional development.
  • A teaching assistant for a minimum of three hours in your class every day.
  • A dedicated support team, with a Mentor and Year or Phase Leader to help.

Our Locations

The Trust currently consists of fivemember schools, all based in the Surrey borough of Spelthorne - in Shepperton, Ashford and Staines-upon-Thames. More information can be found by visiting each individual school page.
