Start date: September 2019
Contract type: Part Time
Salary: Compettive
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: No

We are seeking an enthusiastic and experienced teacher of Mandarin for pupils from Year 1 to Year 6. 

The post has potential to expand into full-time eventually as the language progresses through the secondary part of Forest School.  We are looking for someone who can work well with a certain degree of independence, who has an innovative outlook, clear ambition and enthusiasm for pupil development and will be fully involved in the life of the school.

Forest Preparatory School is situated at the innermost point of Epping Forest and is also within 30 minutes of the centre of London.  It is well-known for the quality of its extended curriculum, successes in Sport, the Arts and for Academic Excellence with pupils regularly winning scholarships and awards to our own senior school as well as other highly competitive secondary schools.  The junior section of an all-through school, Forest Preparatory School has its own excellent facilities, but also benefits from sharing a site with the Senior School and utilising whole-school resources. 

Class sizes are small (22) and the split between the sexes is exactly 50:50. Pupils are taught in single-sex classes between the ages of 7 and 16 and in co-educational classes both in the Pre-Prep and the Sixth Form.  This ‘diamond structure’ is a striking feature of the School. 

Forest is very proud of its academic status, its reputation in a range of co-curricular activities.  All teaching staff are encouraged and expected to contribute in accordance with their strengths to the outstanding co-curricular programme and other areas of School life.

Forest School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  

Please visit our website (www.forest.org.uk/prep-school) where you will find a full introduction to Forest Preparatory School.   Should you wish to discuss any aspect of this position before applying, Mr James Sanderson, the Head of Forest Preparatory School, would be happy to hear from you (0208 509 4985 or prephead@forest.org.uk).
