Teaching Excellence

Our teachers are dedicated and creative, sharing their love of learning with their students everyday.

Our skilled staff tailor the learning to suit the individual needs of students, and are lifelong learners themselves, taking part in regular professional learning to keep up to date with the latest advances in education. Our teachers take the time to get to know every student well and can plan their learning journey to best suit the way they learn.

Our students benefit from the skills and knowledge of specialist teachers in Music, Drama and Japanese. In addition to our classroom teachers, OLN employs a number of specialist support teachers who work with students on their literacy and numeracy skills, as well as a school counsellor who works with students to make sure they are getting all the help and support they need.
