The teaching staff at RSD are all subject specialists and they take a huge amount of pride in promoting a ‘love of subject’ to pupils of all ages. Most teachers also play the role of form tutor, guiding pupils as they progress through school and providing pupils with support and pastoral care.

Staff are deeply committed to the school’s ethos, with everyone involved in Boarding in some way, including some teachers who act as resident staff, and large numbers of staff committed to RSD’s extensive extra-curricular programme. Not surprisingly, staff and pupils enjoy great relationships based around a shared vision and values.

Staff also support one another, engaging in professional development by sharing experiences and expertise, and looking after one another through the Staff Common Room Committee’s health and wellbeing programme and various social events.
