Our staff work as a team to maintain a challenging, fun, and safe learning environment. As an independent school, we are able to cater to the needs of each individual student. We are not restricted by a “franchise policy” or cookie-cutter curriculum. Each class’ syllabus is developed by its head teacher and the school’s director. We are extremely proud of the environment we have created.
- All staff have been recruited and are highly respected in the industry.
- We have an exceptionally low turnover; the average tenure at Camelot is 8 years.
- We always have a low teacher-student ratio.
- Our staff are enthusiastic and have a sense of fun. Teaching is their joy and not just a job.
- All teachers are CPR and first aid certified.
