Junior School Science Teacher
Notting Hill & Ealing High School, one of London’s leading independent girls’ day schools, has an exciting opportunity for an inspirational Junior School Science Teacher to join our successful and committed team in the Junior School.
The NHEHS Junior School is a popular and highly successful, two-form entry school with 300 pupils aged 4 to 11 years where girls and staff work together in a warm, friendly environment. Expectations in all areas of school life are high and entry is by academic selection. Almost all our pupils continue into the Senior School, which also has an outstanding academic record.
We are looking for an enthusiastic, well-qualified and dedicated Science lead, to manage and develop Science throughout our Junior School (Years 1-6). You will teach Science across the school (there is a well-equipped, purpose-built lab), and provide an exciting and stimulating curriculum which will develop our girls’ love of science and their enthusiasm for the subject. Girls in Years 1-4 have an hour lesson once a week of science and those in Years 5 & 6 have an hour and a half. There is close liaison with science subject teachers in the Senior School.

Teaching at NHEHS is exactly what I imagined teaching would be like when I got my first teaching job; it’s what teaching should be!” - Head of Department
