Skinners’ is an awesome place to teach because the students want to learn. They are buzzing with questions… they really make me work! The class sizes are small enough so that I feel I can give everyone individual attention every lesson. The behaviour is so good that I feel I can teach properly, with challenging content in exciting ways.

Ms Deborah Syme, Head of Geography


What I enjoy about Skinners’ Academy is that wherever you turn, teachers will always be there to help you learn and succeed in school and in the future by teaching you skills you might need. This benefits me by making me feel that I’ll have the best chance in life and I will be able to fulfil my maximum potential.
