Nursery Teaching Assistant (2-3 year olds)

This is a unique opportunity for an Early Years’ Teaching Assistant to take on an important role in a growing school with a forward-thinking approach to individual character development.  

Hawkesdown House School is looking to appoint a highly motivated Nursery Teaching Assistant (2-3 year olds) to join our creative, forward-thinking and committed team. This is an exciting time in the life of the School as we move from being a boys’ pre-prep to a co-educational prep School, providing a broad education for children from the age of 2 through to the age of 11.

Our brand new provision for children aged two years old at Hawkesdown  provides a happy and stimulating experience where children can explore and learn, making full use of the facilities the prep school already offers.

We are looking for an exceptional individual who holds an appropriate childcare qualification (NVQ Level 3) and has experience of working in a pre-school or nursery setting, to join the growing team. You will support the class teacher in delivering the prime areas of learning and have a sound knowledge of child development. If you are able to demonstrate your motivation and passion for working in the Early Years Foundation Stage, then we would love to hear from you. The ability to work as part of an already established and experienced Early Years Team is essential. In addition to an attractive salary, which will be dependent on your qualifications and experience, staff benefits include free lunches and opportunities for continuing professional development are offered and very much supported.

Hawkesdown House School is a Preparatory School for girls and boys in the heart of Notting Hill.  It is extremely successful in securing pupil’s entry into the Preparatory School of their choice. This is a permanent full-time post and will commence in January 2020.

This is a superb opportunity for someone wanting to move into an established school. 

Hawkesdown House School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be subject to an enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) clearance along with other relevant pre-employment checks. References will be sought, and we will approach referees prior to interview. We will also validate references by subsequent enquiry.

Please fill in the application form and return it to Mrs. Sophie Zazzarino at
