Part-time, fixed-term, non-residential position for September 2019
A qualified teacher, or ambitious graduate is sought to teach numeracy skills, primarily to Key Stage Three, but also in support of GCSE studies.
Our teachers and tutors are inspiring and creative, transforming the futures of intelligent pupils who experience additional learning challenges, by empowering them.
Nationally celebrated, More House School provides an exceptional, mainstream education for boys with Specific Learning Difficulties. Providing a transformative education repeatedly recognised as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted over more than a decade, we offer a specialised learning environment for 470 day and boarding boys from Year 4 to Year 13. Our pupils are taught to recognise their strengths and develop their self-belief so that they achieve independence and extraordinary results at GCSE, BTEC and A Level, above the national averages.
Delivering a mainstream independent-school experience, both academically and socially, the very broad curriculum affords all pupils the opportunity to discover their strengths, challenging them to fulfil their academic and extra-curricular potential. All boys who attend More House are individually timetabled, with many receiving support through the on-site Learning Development Centre and its qualified therapeutic staff. Judged ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in its last five school inspections, our most recent inspection (March 2019) graded More House School ‘Outstanding’ overall, and ‘Outstanding’ in each of the sub-sections of the report. More House is CReSTeD approved, listed in their Specialist Schools category, and is a member of the Independent Schools Association and the Boarding Schools’ Association.
The school is set on a wooded hillside in nearly thirty acres on the Hampshire/Surrey border, and attractive modern facilities lie above the playing fields. London Waterloo is one hour away by train from close-by Farnham railway station, and there is easy access to the M25, M3 and A3 major routes. Guildford is twenty minutes’ drive away.
Teaching staff join the school from a variety of backgrounds. Many have worked at More House for many years, but the school has supported several teachers through their initial teacher training, and more through their NQT year. Those already qualified may have previous experience in the state-maintained or independent sectors, and may have previous experience supporting learners with specific learning and language difficulties, or may not. The school provides a high level of support and training for all teaching staff, affording the development of confidence and skill in helping pupils to overcome the potential barriers to achievement posed by their difficulties. The school also provides training for other external professionals and other schools, and for the Independent Schools Association.
