At The Doon School, we value the most invaluable resource – Our Teachers

Our teaching faculty at The Doon School is essential to learning experience of all boys. Almost all of the teachers live on the campus and all teach in and out of the classroom are actively involved in the co-curricular education offered to each and every boy. Every teacher is assigned a tutorial group and about eight to ten boys. Academic, pastoral and full guidance are all part of the tutors role and the boys benefit immensely. Outings with tutors to explore the Doon Valley and midterm expeditions strengthen the bonds between the boys and their teachers.

The school has an ongoing teacher training and staff inset programme organized by the Teachers’ Centre, in conjunction with the academic deputies and the Headmaster. In 2011, the school began a whole staff teacher training programme with the Institute of Education, part of the University of London University.

At The Doon School, we value our teachers. They, in turn, not only teach the curriculum, but also inculcate an enthusiasm for learning and a questioning, critical disposition.
