Working at Linton Park, you’re part of a truly global educational establishment, working with small groups of students who are taking responsibility for their own learning outcomes and developing to fulfill their potential.

Our teachers enjoy many things about working with Focus – the lack of toxicity and bureaucracy found in so many other schools, the opportunity to abandon ineffective and traditional teaching methods in favour of unorthodox – but highly effective – initiatives. The positive and supportive atmosphere in the schools, the quality of CPD and training, the embracing of up-to-the-minute technology to make learning easier and more effective, the strength of community support and parental engagement and of course the beautiful facilities.
