Why Work for us?

The Nishkam School Trust has come a long way since 2009. Opening a new school or nursery nearly every year. We are on a journey and it was Michel Legrand that once wrote “The more I live, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I realise, the less I know.”

The Trust is evolving together as a family. We know that to reach our highest aspirations for our students, through embedding values to go beyond each student’s expectations in every part of their learning journey. We continue to pay great emphasis on our programme of Continuous Professional Development focusing on reaching our school vision. “To empower children with virtues, to enable them to excel academically and spiritually.” Please see article from Amanda HM Chief Inspector

Nishkam Schools aim to nurture lifelong learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and compassionate contributors to society. We have, as a trust, grown and have become a family of teachers and students that have the same attitude, respect and love for becoming better human beings and improving our minds and hearts to make a difference in our homes, community and the wider world. If global is local then we are here to show our neighbours that we can all work together and improve not only our education in learning and teaching but our life experience to become selfless humble individuals.

We thank you for being part of our journey and we welcome you to the family.
