The Dragon seeks to appoint a graduate to teach Maths to Years 4 to 8 who will be willing to make a wide contribution to the life of this busy, exciting and successful school. Children take Common Entrance and Scholarship exams to leading senior schools at the end of Year 8.
The Department is lively, well-resourced and fully abreast of the latest developments in teaching and looks to develop potential in all areas of the subject.
All staff contribute to extra-curricular activities. Games players would obviously find their talents used, but the school is large enough for a great variety of cultural and academic interests to be welcomed and to provide ample opportunities for further career progress within the school.
As one of the country’s leading independent schools, the Dragon places high expectations on all its staff and demands that the whole community works together to ensure that the School remains at the forefront of educational excellence and innovation. Although the Dragon is the UK’s largest co-educational boarding and day preparatory school with 580 day pupils and 250 boarders, its deeply personalised approach to each child, and its ethos of inclusivity, openness and tolerance encourages day pupils and boarders to enrich each other’s school experience.
Understanding the meaning of community, developing an awareness of wider society and acquiring the essential qualities of kindness, emotional intelligence, respect and responsibility are central to the School’s all-round educational offer.
The Dragon is non-selective on admission and prides itself on outstanding academic, pastoral and co-curricular outcomes for pupils in its pre-preparatory department, Dragon Pre-Prep, (for pupils aged 4-7 years) and in its preparatory department (8-13 years).
