Ballard SchoolNew Milton, Hampshire

“Quite simply a remarkable school” (parent)

An exciting opportunity has opened for a dynamic KS2 teacher to join the Lower Prep department in one of Hampshire’s highest achieving schools. Ballard is a thriving school, set in 34 acres, situated on the Hampshire / Dorset border, in between the New Forest and Solent. Ballard offers an inclusive working environment with exceptional facilities, including a Performing Arts Centre and an Olympic Astro. There are also excellent transport links.

Our Lower Prep Department is staffed by an experienced group of practitioners with a diverse range of skills and expertise, making it a very strong team. Due to the recent increase in Lower Prep pupil numbers (up 40% during the past two years) we have a position available within our dynamic and friendly department. The Lower Prep is in the fortunate position where it has access to some of the finest GCSE facilities in the area and we work alongside specialist teachers in several areas, including PE, Forest School and the Performing Arts.

The future is looking bright for the Lower Prep and we are keen to maintain the progression this area of the school has made in recent years. We seek a colleague who is passionate and knowledgeable about teaching and has the ability to inspire and encourage children to reach their full potential. We are looking for someone with experience in teaching a variety of subjects within Key Stage 2. An ability and willingness to teach English and Maths throughout the key stage would be an advantage and a commitment to the extra-curricular life of the School is required. 

This post would suit an experienced teacher or an NQT for whom the full statutory induction will be provided. Salary will be determined according to qualifications and experience.
