Thank you for your interest in The Regis School.  I feel privileged to be leading this successful school and I am resolute in my determination to deliver a high performing fully inclusive school, that provides a first-class education for the community it serves.

The staff here share that ambition, and you would be joining a highly qualified, motivated, and dedicated team, who are passionate about ensuring they bring out the best in everyone. We have high expectations of the students and a shared purpose; to ensure when they leave us, they will be motivated lifelong learner, kind citizens and productive young adults.

This is achieved through delivering an ambitious curriculum that equips students with powerful knowledge, maximising their cognitive development, and drawing out and building on their talents. Our curriculum is broad and balanced, not just our academic curriculum but also in terms of Character Education, where we are fully committed to our co-curricular provision, and the ‘hidden curriculum’ of the school - intended to spark curiosity and to nourish the head and the heart.

Our ethos is centred around ‘the best in everyone’ and therefore we expect the best from everyone, constantly challenging the students and ourselves. As a hardworking and passionate Headteacher I believe in many things including: high professional standards (of ourselves and our work); in personal responsibility and the value of discipline; that all students deserve disruption free learning; in kindness and good manners; in inclusion; in smiling; in being respectful and most importantly in showing limitless ambition, setting goals high.

I am proud of the commitment shown daily from our staff and the students to ensure The Regis School is a centre of educational excellence. This permeates out into the community, where parents’ confidence in our ability to do so is shown in The Regis School being the school of choice for the community we serve.  We are delighted to have been  oversubscribed for the fourth consecutive year and early indictaions predict this trend will continue.

If the above aligns to your values and educational beliefs and feel excited that The Regis School could be the right school for you, we would welcome your application. There is more information in your pack and on our website about our school, and we hope you enjoy finding out more about us. We recognise that moving to a new school is a significant decision and therefore offer an open invite to prospective candidates to meet with myself (face to face or virtually) and visit the school in person. I very much look forward to meeting you.


Best wishes

Dave Oakes 


The Regis School aspires to be an outstanding centre of learning, serving its community and transforming lives. We seek to equip our students for a changing world through building confidence, encouraging creativity and fostering enquiry to achieve excellence. These qualities will allow our students to flourish as leaders of the future and to take their place as caring, ambitious and responsible citizens in their communities.

Academic achievement is at the heart of what we do, ensuring students leave with the highest qualifications that enable them to be competitive in the global economy.  We expect our students to ‘learn hard’ and relish the challenge of skills and knowledge acquisition in a wide variety of subject areas.

I joined the Regis School in September 2016 as an NQT and during my time here I have had fantastic professional development opportunities which have allowed me to advance in my career to the position of Head of Science. Whilst at The Regis I have been given the opportunity to complete my NPQML as well as being offered internal coaching and external middle leadership courses. The school has provided me with so many opportunities to develop my own teaching as well as my leadership and I am so thankful to SLT for this. TRS is a fantastic place to work and I can’t imagine wanting to work anywhere else!

Rebecca Offer, Head of Department - Science

I started working at the Regis School in 2012. I have had a variety of roles, from a TA, through an English Intervention Tutor, to the EAL teacher. The school have always been supportive throughout the course of my PhD studies, as well as in developing my potential as a teacher and a tutor. I feel well looked after and appreciated every single day, and I cannot imagine working anywhere else. I would recommend the Regis School not only to potential future staff members, but also to parents, as having been here for nearly ten years, I have experienced and observed an all-inclusive professional teaching and pastoral practice all round!”

Anna Gore, Teacher of EAL

I joined The Regis School in 2021 as a trainee English teacher and my experience has been nothing but exceptional: all staff have been incredibly helpful in my development and the open-door classroom policy ensures I am always learning from my colleagues; the whole-school CPD is second-to-none and using evidence-informed practice to drive the school forward; my department produces high-quality lessons which aids in my delivery of successful and engaging lessons. Alongside my classroom development, I’ve been able to fully involve myself in school life, where I have assisted in the running of the school’s LGBT+ club and assisted in the year 11 mentoring programme. I would highly recommend working at TRS, which is a modern and ambitious environment that supports pupils and teachers in achieving their very best.

Sam Fifield, Teacher of English

Since starting at The Regis School in November 2018 as an Attendance Clerk, I am now the Senior Attendance Officer managing the Attendance Department.

TRS Senior Leadership Team have been instrumental in my career progression and offered support and CPD programmes to further develop my skills in working with young people. 

This is an excellent school to work in, support staff are recognised and made to feel a real part of the vision and ethos the school promote.

I really enjoy coming to work every day to an environment which is welcoming and supportive.

Monica Bowen, Senior Attendance Officer

Trust underpins everything that we do in schools. The parents of our pupils entrust the care of their children to us and together we are all responsible for their well being.

All United Learning schools have policies which deal with safeguarding, child protection and safer recruitment, which are in accordance with the relevant local authority procedures and which comply with the DFE’s safeguarding children and safer recruitment statutory guidance.  The individual school policies are available via each school’s website or by contacting your school directly.
