Lady Barn House School is a thriving independent day preparatory school for boys and girls aged 3 to 11.  There are currently around 485 pupils on roll.  The school offers excellent teaching, traditional values and exceptional pastoral care.  There is a strong academic legacy with an individual focus on strengthening each pupil’s confidence and abilities.  The school aims to ensure that each child is happy, challenged and empowered to take full advantage of life at Lady Barn House School with its many opportunities.

We are looking to appoint a suitably qualified teacher to join our team of class teachers on a full-time permanent basis to start in September 2019.  A part-time contract (minimum 0.7) will be considered.

At Lady Barn, form teachers take their class for Maths, English, and other subjects apart from those which are taught by specialists (Music, ICT, Science, PE/Games, Foreign Languages, Drama and Art/Design Technology).  Since the school offers a broad PE and Games programme, a willingness and ability to contribute in this area will be welcome.

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, forward-thinking professional to join our highly committed teaching team.  We want you to not only be able to teach to a very high standard but also to be innovative and creative in your approach, adapting your teaching style to ‘how children learn best’ and be committed to the school’s flexible and varied approaches to learning, and to its well known high standards.
