Greenfield School

Education - why do we do it?

Teaching is a profession that doesn't see much positivity in the press. We mostly hear about the negatives news stories, the scandals, the number of people leaving the profession or the various ways schools are letting their pupils down. We thought it was about time that people heard more positive news from teachers and why they continue to do this rewarding work.

The staff at Greenfield School have joined us from many walks of life. Their varied passions, talents and education make for a diverse body of professionals all working to provide the best possible education for our pupils.

All our staff are invited to contribute to the Greenfield blog. We hope you enjoy reading their articles.
