Channing Junior School provides a happy, stimulating and secure environment for some 336 girls aged 4 to 11.  Entrance is at 4+ and is selective. The school is in an attractive part of Highgate, with convenient transport links by road and underground.  Visitors are often surprised at how light, green and open our site is.

 We aim to provide small children with a strong sense of security during their first years in the school and as a result, the school is a happy place to learn. The pupils are encouraged to become independent learners and, through a variety of teaching strategies, to achieve an increased love of learning and knowledge of the wider world.

The staff-room is friendly and mutually supportive, and cross-curricular involvement is welcomed and encouraged, particularly in activities outside the classroom. 

The pupils are receptive and well-motivated, and conditions for staff are excellent; we pay London salaries and there is generous provision made for INSET and professional development.

The role will be for an Early Years, a Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2 post depending on the strengths and experience of the successful candidate.
