In most year groups there are employed not only class teachers, but also additional teachers to support, as well as class assistants with younger classes. In kindergarten we also employ (in addition to class teachers and class assistants) class support teachers who are native Japanese teachers with Japanese kindergarten qualifications.

Specialist staff teach music, Japanese, library skills and ES (English Support).
