Lady Barn House School is a thriving independent day school for boys and girls aged 3 to 11. There are currently around 487 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 able to take full advantage of life at Lady Barn House School with its many opportunities.
We are looking to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced teacher to join our team of class teachers on a full-time permanent basis to start in September 2017. We anticipate the person appointed teaching in either Year 4 or Year 5/6. For information, Year 5 form teachers take their classes for two years to the end of Year 6.
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 and Art/Design Technology). Since the school offers a broad PE and Games programme willingness and ability to contribute in this area will be welcome.
Applications should include:
