Teacher of Computing

Garden House SchoolKensington and Chelsea

Garden House is a joyful, vibrant, purposeful school, based in the heart of Chelsea.  As a leading London pre-preparatory and preparatory school, we offer a first-class education to approximately 470 children between the ages of 3 and 11 years old.  Girls and boys are taught separately for most academic lessons but have numerous opportunities to interact with each other during the school day, giving our children the very best of both worlds.

As a specialist computing teacher in KS1 and KS2, you will be an ambitious, innovative and committed professional who is strongly motivated to assist the Head of Computing in driving the subject forward across the whole school. 

Our boys and girls gain places and scholarships at some of the most prestigious day and boarding schools in the country. However, while our academic standards are very high, this is not to the detriment of all the other vital elements of our provision nor to that of our core tenet: a happy and well-spent childhood. A broad and balanced curriculum is central to our history and ethos, and success in the creative arts or on the sports fields is celebrated and encouraged just as much as success in the traditional academic subjects. 

The successful candidate will receive a competitive salary commensurate with experience. They will join a highly supportive and dynamic working community, with outstanding opportunities for professional development, and where collaboration across all parts of the school is the norm. We are unashamedly proud of the fact that our staff look forward to coming to school as much as our children.
