The Maharishi Free School is an Academy situated in West Lancashire, north-west England in proximity to both Liverpool and Greater Manchester.

It is a wonderful place to be – a dynamic learning environment combined with a harmonious atmosphere where children aged from 4 – 16 receive the uniquely effective system of Consciousness-based Education. The School operates from two sites, Primary and Secondary, each with a Deputy Head.

Creativity and intelligence are systematically developed with a few minutes of Transcendental Meditation (TM) at the beginning and end of the school day. Scientific research – based upon more than 200 studies - has shown that the experience of restful alertness during TM brings balance to the whole physiology, making learning both enjoyable and successful.

  • A School that was approved in the first round of Free Schools (2011)

  • A School graded ‘Good’ by Ofsted, whose focus is on the holistic development of the students
  • Full onsite support for developing your understanding and practice of Consciousness-based Education
  • Great staff and a harmonious working environment – where exceptionally high dedication is the norm and staff turnover is rare
  • Position reports to Deputy Head, Secondary

We are seeking a candidate who will:

  • ·Exhibit a passion for Modern Foreign Languages
  • ·Radiate creativity and enthusiasm in the classroom
