There are approximately 440 children in Key Stage 2 in five forms across four year groups. Highgate is a fully coeducational, academically selective school with able and enthusiastic children. Expectations are high across the curriculum and beyond.
Highgate embarked on a complete rebuild of the Junior School in January 2014. We moved into our new state-of-the-art accommodation in September 2016 which provides us with an outstanding purpose-built teaching environment. It is essential that we have the very best team of teachers in place in order to continue to make the most of this wonderful opportunity.
Applications are sought from well-qualified teachers with relevant experience of the primary or the preparatory school curricula. Candidates will need to be able to contribute to a challenging, accelerated curriculum and have experience of teaching intelligent, lively pupils or an interest in doing so, and the flair, imagination and people-skills to do so successfully.
The person appointed should be both able and willing to teach across the curriculum and across any of the four year groups as well as to be flexible in their approach. All staff are expected to contribute to the extra-curricular life of the school.
The School has in place DfE recognised arrangements for the Induction Year and the confirmation of NQT status and has considerable experience of and success in guiding entrants to the profession to qualified status. For all teachers new to Highgate, regardless of experience, there is a strong and supportive framework of induction to the School.
Teachers at Highgate enjoy a welcoming, comfortable and exceptionally well-resourced environment and are provided with significant assistance from a range of support staff. Salaries are competitive.
