About The Sheffield Private School

The Sheffield Private School is an affordable British style school and member of the BSME offering a well-balanced, ‘Ultra’ curriculum that follows the English National Curriculum for children aged 3 to 18 years old. As a school founded in 2004, we have a strong community spirit and a dedicated educational facility who hold inclusion close to their hearts. We believe that learning should be ‘limitless’ as we continue the journey to become a High Performance Learning (HPL) accredited school  where learners will develop the values, attitudes and attributes supporting both their educational and life prospects.

The Opportunity

We are looking to appoint experienced, dynamic and enthusiastic Key stage 1 teachers with the ability to foster student led learning experiences  that allow learners to explore, take risks, collaborate and ultimately understand their next steps in learning. 

All our classrooms are equipped with interactive smartboards and displays and we encourage our students to bring their own devices from Year 3 upwards. Learning Innovation is an area we are exploring continuously with our current aim to become a Microsoft showcase school next year.
