Brentwood Preparatory School is an academically selective IAPS school with small class sizes and a happy and supportive staff team. It is part of Brentwood School, a 3-18 HMC school of over 1600 pupils, just 20 minutes from London Liverpool Street.
Due to the exciting expansion of Brentwood Preparatory School in September 2020, we are seeking to appoint outstanding KS2 practitioners to teach general subjects, particularly English and Mathematics. There may be the opportunity to teach specialist subjects to other classes and to also lead a subject area; this will depend upon the experience and qualifications of the person appointed. The ability to offer Science and/or Food Technology would be desirable, but this should not deter candidates with other strengths from applying for this post.
Brentwood School ethos
We embody our values of virtue, learning and manners just as those before us have been doing since 1557. We are proud of our modern inclusive community which is shaped by our Christian Foundation. Our pupils are confident without being arrogant, they look out for each other, they do the right thing, even when no-one is looking and they respect difference: you will see a footballer enjoying lunch with a chorister and a dance captain running a recycling project with a young chess enthusiast.
We help our pupils to solve problems. In partnership with parents, we teach them to persevere after setbacks, adopt a growth mindset, and challenge the norm. We encourage them to ask questions in class and take control of their own learning. Of course, they work hard and enjoy great success in and out of the classroom, and once they’ve left us, many go on to use and develop their leadership skills and achieve beyond their expectations, always remembering what Brentwood has taught them.
That’s who we are. We are Brentwood.
Staff across both the Prep and Senior School enjoy a bespoke collaborative approach to professional development. We believe in being a research engaged school, with those that facilitate our in-house research programme being trained by the Institute of Education. We support many of our staff in obtaining external accreditation across a range of fields and are engaged with a number of national and international organisations. We are a highly supportive school that values the contributions made by a motivated and intellectually curious staff. There are a range of ways that we enhance our staff experience; free gym membership, benefits hub, free lunch, free tickets to school concerts and performance to name but a few. Brentwood School has its own pay scale that is significantly above the maintained sector and we also have a range of staff accommodation that may be available for the successful applicant should they need to relocate.
All Brentwood School vacancies can be found on the School’s website.
Brentwood School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.
