This is a unique opportunity for an ambitious Early Years’ Teacher to take on an influential leadership role in a growing school with a forward-thinking approach to individual character development.  

Hawkesdown House School is looking to appoint a career-minded and highly motivated Pre-Nursery teacher 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 (minimum NVQ Level 3 but preferable Level 6) and has experience of working in a pre-school or nursery setting, to join the growing team. You will be confident planning and 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 a competitive 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 September 2019.  

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