Additional staff are a rarity at First Position! Miss Natalie likes to be at the forefront of every student’s development and keeps a consistency of pupil contact. The teaching team that do contribute to pupil success at FP have been selected not only for their qualifications or experience, but on personal merit of the work they produce and the standards they uphold which are in keeping with the ethos and culture of the FP. Their skill and expertise add to the hub of inspiration at First Position…

“FP students are an absolute joy to work with, they know how to work hard and have fun in exactly the right measure for their discipline. Already many of them show the mentality and work ethic needed for the professional industry and they are fully open to learning, soaking up new work like they need it to breathe! I feel honoured to be working with FP students, and to be part of such a high quality teaching team”.

“FP pupils are happy, enthusiastic, and very determined. They have a work ethic which is quite unusual for children their age, but it’s clearly fed down from their Principal, and in a way that shows a healthy desire to progress. Teaching them is so enjoyable and seeing them improve week on week is truly rewarding.
