We asked a new teacher who came to the school last year, to give us their views on what it was like to join LSI/IH Portsmouth.
“When starting to work at a new school, I always face the same teething
problems. It take stime to adjust to the new timetable, administrative system,
resources and in some cases teaching style. Thankfully, starting at LSI/IH Portsmouth was a painless experience.
The timetable allows sufficient time for preparation, and the resources are
abundant and well-organised. All of the staff have been welcoming, and have
offered up suggestions and recommendations for lesson content and
My previous job was at a school on London’s Oxford Street, near the
building site for Crossrail. The working environment at LSI/IH Portsmouth couldn’t be more
different. It’s nice to have sea views from classrooms rather than the constant
sound of drilling!
The school offers a lot of opportunities to teach various types of class, and
supports teacher development.
settling in has been pain-free.”
Hopefully this will help any new teachers thinking of joining LSI/IH Portsmouth in the future to feel a little more comfortable about starting.
Thank you new teacher (who preferred not to have his name published 😉
