We are seeking an experienced and enthusiastic teacher to provide maternity cover for one of our two Reception (Early Years) classes in our successful and happy school for girls aged between 4 and 11 years.  With 15 girls in a class and supported by a Teaching Assistant, teachers are really able to challenge and support each girl according to her needs. The School has opted out of the EYFS curriculum, although this does provide a framework for our own curriculum.

This post is initially offered for a minimum of two terms with a possibility of this being extended. 

The salary will be competitive, based on the candidate’s skills, experience and ability to contribute to the life of the school.
