Our Staff

The Ilam community is extremely fortunate to have such highly skilled and affable people working in their school. The children in this school receive high quality teaching and learning programmes, from caring and supportive teachers. The teachers in turn are supported by a wonderful group of support staff who go above and beyond their job in order to see that the children at Ilam get the best education possible.

The school is organised into four teaching teams or syndicates.  Year 1, Year 2, Middle (Year 3 & 4) and Senior (Year 5 & 6).
