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.
We are seeking an enthusiastic and experienced teacher for Year 1. 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 who will be fully involved in the life of the school.
Class sizes are small (16) and each Pre-Prep class has a full-time teaching assistant. 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.
