Wickham Court School is a family-based, co-educational preparatory school with an outstanding reputation, which places the careful, nurturing and rounded education of the children in our care at its core.  We encourage impressive results from happy children for a fee, which we strive to keep accessible to many. We will always remain true to this philosophy whilst striving to constantly improve what we deliver.

We are currently seeking to recruit an enthusiastic and inspirational teacher to work with our Year Six students to help prepare them for Senior school life.  Year Six is a crucial year for all students, as they reach the top of the Prep school, undertaking roles such as Prefects and House Captains whilst also preparing for the transition to Senior school that follows.  Our teachers are dedicated and caring, and our school has a strong sense of community.  Our students thrive in an exceptionally positive learning environment and enjoy many museum visits, theatre trips and activities to enhance their learning.  

Our classes are small and our teaching very much tutorial college style, we aim for our pupils to leave us as confident, happy, articulate and enthusiastic individuals. The key quality we are searching for is the ‘wow factor’ in the classroom – can you grab the attention of the whole class and keep it whilst delivering outstanding teaching to each child?  Are you prepared to think carefully about how to enhance your lessons, your classroom, and your pastoral care?  Do you have the passion to ‘roll-up your sleeves’ and ‘get stuck-in’ in every aspect of our small school?  If you do, we’d like to talk to you.

Key qualities:

  • Truly exceptional KS2 Teacher
  • Ambition and vision for developing our school
  • Able to motivate and develop a class of learners.
  • The ability to teach Music or Science would be desirable
  • Outstanding communication skills
  • Solid understanding of schools and commitment outside the classroom
  • Entrepreneurial and autonomous approach
  • Experienced and outstanding teacher
