Why Teach in Newham

We’re one of Britain’s fastest improving local authorities! Ofsted has said that Newham is a good authority.

Academic standards are rising fast, school attendance is up and exclusions are down.

As a teacher in Newham you will have an opportunity to make a real difference and to develop your own professional skills and expertise. We recognise that this belief demands a serious commitment to teachers and we demonstrate it by providing the maximum help for the professional development of our staff.

Our  ideas such as teaching assistants, baseline assessment and inclusive education are now central to the national drive for improved achievement.

For new teachers career prospects are excellent with high starting salaries and good opportunities for promotion. Ofsted said: “The scheme to support newly qualified teachers is good”, and praised the support for professional development of all teachers.
