The school has gone through a rapid period of growth and investment in the past five years and as a result we are operating waiting lists in several year groups. Following this successful expansion, we are looking to further raise our standards and curriculum offering. We invite applications from high quality candidates for the role of Key Stage 1/2 Teacher, who have the passion, motivation and drive to contribute further to standards of excellence across the school community.
Located in the heart of Corsham, Wiltshire, the school is housed in a beautiful Grade II listed Georgian building constructed in 1776. Heywood Prep educates boys and girls from age 2 to 11. At the end of Year 6, the majority of children leave for independent senior schools in Bath and Wiltshire, many winning awards and scholarships. At present, we have approximately 240 children on roll.
Heywood Prep is a happy school which produces caring, thoughtful children. The staff place great emphasis on nurturing and developing the talents of each pupil, encouraging them to have open and enquiring minds which will equip them to thrive in the next stage of their education. Academic standards are high and there is a strong commitment to encouraging all pupils to experience a range of extra-curricular activities. Personal development is encouraged through excellent pastoral care. Socially, numerous activities are enjoyed by the children including sport, music and drama.
Heywood Prep is a member of the Wishford group. The school is in the midst of an exciting period of investment, modernisation and development, with investment and support from the Wishford group. To find out more, visit www.heywoodprep.com

Wishford Schools is a small, friendly group of seven prep schools. The group aims to provide an excellent education to all pupils, giving every child the opportunity to shine. Standards and expectations are high, and staff and pupils are challenged and supported to give their best.
As a family-run group, the group has a very long-term outlook. This enables investment in the staff, facilities and resources needed in order for the schools to thrive. The group firmly believes that if its pupils are happy and successful, then the business will also succeed. The schools are run in a business-like manner, but the happiness, safety and education of pupils always comes first.
Schools work closely with the group’s senior leaders to define the school’s strategy and then enjoy the autonomy to run their schools, while benefiting from the support that membership of the group brings. In addition to strategic input and the sharing of best practice, the group provides expertise in property, legal, HR, finance, compliance and marketing matters leaving heads with time to focus on the children within their care. In addition, Heads work closely with an Advisory Board of experienced school leaders, and with each other, meaning that someone is always available to offer advice and support.
