Work alongside our globally renowned education experts

Our teaching approach fosters academic excellence and the life skills to develop students’ self-confidence and self-assurance. We do this by focusing on the individual and offering a broad curriculum based on Three Pillars, with Academics at the centre and Performing Arts and Sports equally important. This rich curriculum ensures that each student can discover their passions, develop their skills and, with the encouragement and support of our teachers, challenge themselves across all areas of our curriculum.

Students Science


Central to all of our schools, our core of academics teaches our students critical and lateral thinking to form the understanding and application of a wide variety of disciplines. Many of our schools follow the British Curriculum to Year 11 and then the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme to Year 13.

Kids Cricket


Inspired’s sporting pillar stands for health and well-being, fun, motivation, self-discipline, and self-esteem. Whether involving students in team sports or introducing them to individual pursuits, we aim to provide an athletics programme to suit every student, with many of our students going on to achieve national and international honours.

Students Ballet

Performing Arts

We passionately believe the arts help to instill confidence and self-assurance within our students to nurture and develop their interests for life, be it from drama lessons and public speaking to instrumental music lessons or the visual arts.

Our Curriculum

We deliver an international education that provides academic, artistic, sporting and social success of more than 85,000 students across 25 countries.

We offer extensive opportunities to teach a combination of robust natural curriculums and internationally certified academic programmes. Our schools deliver National Curriculum for England, International Baccalaureate (IB - PYP, MYP and DP), IGCSE, A-levels BTEC (UK), AP (USA) and local curriculum for each country.

Our values

Our values guide our behaviours day-to-day, informing how we act, the decisions we make, and how we work with each other, our students, our parents, our communities and all our stakeholders. They unite us across our different backgrounds and cultures and are common to each of us.



We value accountability and a commitment to bringing our best performance in all we do and being responsible for our actions and our results.



We value resilience and setting ambitious goals to create a better future, meeting challenges with optimistic enthusiasm and remaining steadfast during difficult times.



We value innovation and continuous learning, striving to consistently improve ourselves, our schools, and everything we do.



We value the importance of transparency and creating an open and feedback-led culture which drives improvement and positive change.



We value agility and action orientation, making pragmatic decisions quickly by focusing on the right details and what is essential to drive excellence.

Rick Cross

Rick Cross – Principal - Reddam House Berkshire

What inspired you to become a teacher?

I worked in the financial and IT sector of London, recruiting software developers for large banks. I soon realised my passion was for learning so switched to teaching, landing my first job at Alleyn’s School in Dulwich. I moved into senior management with a move to The Perse in Cambridge, and later Beadles.

And later, a headteacher?

I became a Head because I enjoy working with people and improving schools. I have been lucky in that I have had many different opportunities in my career, and when the right set of circumstances came to lead Reddam House, I jumped at the chance.

What encouraged you to join Inspired?

The decision to join Inspired was an easy one. The Group’s child-centred philosophy places students where they belong: at the centre of the teacher’s focus in a personalised learning environment where they can truly blossom.

What do you enjoy most about your role?

Inspired has afforded me excellent opportunities, first as headteacher of Reddam House Umhlanga, South Africa, and now at Kings’ InterHigh - Inspired’s first online school. We are at the cutting edge of online education, and the support provided by the wider Inspired team is invaluable.

Has Inspired supported your career development?

I have enjoyed a remarkable career in education, and Inspired has played a large role in my development.

Importantly, as part of a network of 80 schools worldwide, we enact and deliver best practices to children so they can progress alongside us.

Ronel de Wet – Teacher – Reddford House Northcliff

How does your current role differ from your previous position?

I had the privilege of joining Reddford House Northcliff in 2022 as a FET FAL teacher and was recently appointed faculty head. My passion for teaching has been rekindled: I am inspired by the diverse community I support and prepare students well with high-quality resources and pedagogical methods.

How would you describe the working culture at your school?

The leadership team encourages us to share our ideas which creates a motivating environment. Teachers hold a wealth of experience and are recognised as experts in their field. Our talents are noticed, utilised, and further strengthened with access to development opportunities locally and overseas.

It is rare to find a school that supports teachers' input. However, I feel appreciated. Our students are exceptionally well-behaved, and if problems arise, we have the support of the entire staff. I am thrilled to develop my profession as part of the Reddford House family.


James Day - Global Head of Customer Acquisition and Experience – Inspired Education Group 

How did your teaching career begin?

My journey with Inspired began at Reddam House Sydney as an Economics and Business Studies teacher. I was then honoured to be invited to the UK to drive the transformation of Inspired’s flagship school, Reddam House Berkshire where I held several positions including Director of Studies and Head of School. The latter role is where my passion for school enrolment growth and commercial activities took over and lead me to an incredible opportunity, building out and leading the Customer Acquisition and Experience function for Inspired. 

What sets the Inspired Education Group apart from other international school groups?

Inspired has offered me multiple opportunities for leadership, and career development and provided exceptional support to transfer from school operations to head office. Examples of progression and mobility that you will rarely find in other organisations.
