An enjoyable new role – and a healthy work-life balance.  

If you have experience of successfully leading a team in a busy kitchen, with professional catering qualifications to at least Level 3 or equivalent, this is your opportunity to take on a new role that offers a great work-life balance. That’s because you’ll be working a 37 hour week from Monday-Friday during term-time, finishing no later than 4.30pm.  Only limited flexibility is needed to work for 3 weeks (9.00am -1.00pm) during school holidays and covering occasional evening events or Saturday morning open days.  

You can also look forward to an outstanding working environment. A leading independent prep school for 500 children aged 3-11 years, you will be based just yards away from the banks of the River Avon and Warwick Castle. Join us and your contribution to the school community will be genuinely valued – and we will actively support and encourage your development.  

Managing the catering team, you will be responsible for the menu and ensuring that every one of our pupils enjoys fresh, delicious and healthy meals. First-rate culinary skills are clearly essential, combined with a quality-focused approach and the ability to lead and develop your team.    

In return, you will enjoy an exceptional range of benefits including pension, generous holidays, onsite parking, free school lunches, free use of our gym and swimming facilities at certain times, childcare vouchers, eye test vouchers and an Employee Assistance Programme.

As you walk through the doors at Warwick Prep, you’ll discover an atmosphere that fosters an exceptional learning experience and encourages each individual pupil to be the very best he or she can be. 

The success of our school is firmly built around the pursuit of excellence in all we do. Our pupils follow a broad, varied and challenging curriculum taught by a multi-talented and exceptionally committed staff. We are very proud of and keen to uphold our tremendous academic reputation both locally and far beyond, enabling children to fulfil their potential and be the best they can be.

While they are with us, we also want them to enjoy the most rounded learning experience possible. To that end, we offer great strength and depth in both team and individual sports; we provide rich and diverse musical opportunities; we organise a broad and engaging programme of visits and extra-curricular activities designed to widen their interests and skills. We recognise the unique talents and skills of each individual child and aim to foster a lifelong love of learning enabling them to run, play, imagine and thrive.

All this is undertaken against the backdrop of a modern, top-tier learning and sporting environment. We also benefit greatly from being part of something bigger – together with King's High School for Girls and Warwick School, we are one of the three ‘family’ schools which form the Warwick Independent Schools Foundation. This gives us access to further exceptional facilities including the Bridge House Theatre, a 25 metre indoor swimming pool and a lot more besides. We are a big school with all the benefits that scale brings, but as one parent memorably put it, "Warwick Prep makes big feel small."

I hope you enjoy your look through our website. It gives a taste of the kind of school we are and the qualities and values that underpin everything we do. But the way to fully appreciate what really makes Warwick Prep such a vibrant, dynamic, happy and special place is to pay us a visit. Do visit us on an Open Day or arrange a personal tour of the school with me. I very much look forward to meeting you.

Hellen Dodsworth, Headmistress
