Palmers Green High School (PGHS) is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed teacher to join the supportive and friendly Lower School team, initially in Year 5. At PGHS you will be teaching bright, interested and hard-working pupils in an academically selective girls' independent school. The successful candidate will be confident and proficient in planning and teaching lessons and will engage and motivate pupils to realise their full potential whilst maintaining the core values of our School. As a Lower School teacher, you will participate fully in the life of the School and contribute to enriching the lives of the girls.
Palmers Green High School is an independent day school for approximately 300 girls aged 3-16 years. At PGHS we provide a stimulating and supportive environment in which high academic achievement and broad personal development go hand in hand. The School was founded in 1905 by Miss Alice Hum, a Quaker, and the ideas of integrity and care implicit in the founding philosophy have been maintained in the face of changing standards in society. One of our main strengths and attractions to parents is the ‘one school’ ethos, which ensures a smooth transition for pupils as they proceed from the Lower School to the Senior School.
We are an ambitious school and recent developments have included the installation of bespoke teaching walls in classrooms and a brand new music suite and school library.
Palmers Green High 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.
