The School seeks to employ a highly professional Pre-Prep School Class Teacher (Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2) with a minimum of three years teaching experience.

The Lower School includes Early Years (K1 and K2) and the Pre-Prep School (Y1-Y5) with a total of 480 students currently on roll. It encourages students to become independent learners: from taking a greater role in their own personal organisation to increasing their ability for independent thought and responsibility for their own learning. Students entering Early Years experience a vibrant and lively learning environment. Concepts essential to forming a strong foundation in basic skills are explored on a daily basis and the integrated day is conducive to exploration, enquiry and interaction both in and outside the classroom. In the Pre-Prep School, students experience a more formal structure to the School day with discrete subject lessons, an increased number of specialist lessons and an extra-curricular programme.

At Harrow Hong Kong, we seek to employ teachers in the Lower School with the ability and commitment to enhance the life of an ‘all through School’ with a strong boarding ethos in the Upper School, and to work effectively and collaboratively in a team dedicated to further establishing and developing the curriculum in the School. The core of the Class Teacher role is the teaching and associated pastoral care of the students in their class in a year group team in the Pre-Prep School. However, the School’s emphasis on activities outside the classroom means that an effective and varied contribution to the extra-curricular programme will also be required.

All Lower School teachers are offered two-year renewable contracts and a highly competitive compensation package, including an additional monthly accommodation allowance and full medical insurance for employees and their dependents.


Suitable candidates will have:

  1. The ability to inspire others and lead by example, role modelling the School’s vision statement 'Leadership for a better world' in relationships with students, teachers and parents.
  2. Appropriate teaching qualification.
  3. The ability and commitment to be an excellent classroom teacher, usually with a minimum teaching experience of three years.
  4. A genuine interest in the KS1/KS2 age group and a strong commitment to high standards and teaching and learning.
  5. A genuine commitment to the wellbeing and pastoral care of children.
  6. Interests and abilities that can enhance the School’s extra-curricular programme.
  7. Excellent inter-personal skills with students, teachers and parents.
  8. Excellent administrative, organisational, and ICT skills.
