Pay and Benefits

Each of our secondary schools offers a comprehensive package of benefits. All schools seek to offer one of the best pay packages in London. Full details are available from each school.

Inner London Payscale
We pay the inner London payscale, over £1900 a year higher than outer London boroughs.

*Help with loans
Some maintained schools  may offer NQTs an interest free loan of up to £3000 to enable you to repay a student loan. Repayments will be deducted from your salary.

This will particularly help you if you have a bank loan, which typically charge between 8% and 12% interest. The interest payments plus loan protection can cost between £385-£700 for a £3000 loan over three years.

Other Benefits

  • Reduction on membership at Borough Leisure Centres on production of proof of employment
  • Excellent opportunities for continuing professional development

Accommodation in Newham is less expensive than many other areas of London. Furthermore, we have a number of affordable housing schemes. Local Space Housing Association and NewShare Shared Equity Scheme, prioritise Newham teachers.

Information on these schemes can be found on the housing page
