Teaching Assistant  

Full or Part Time (Fixed Term in the first instance)

Mount House is a small school offering a highly nurturing environment in Barnet, North London.  With a maximum of sixty students in each year group, it gives every student a chance to participate and shine in a whole range of academic and co-curricular areas.  

Mount House has the academic focus you would expect, we encourage students to work hard, to ask for help and to be kind in all their interactions with others. We place great emphasis on the ‘all-round’ education of our students, and the creative arts, music and sport all play an important part role in school life. Pastoral care is truly exceptional at Mount House, and central in delivering that care are tutors working with small groups of students, enhanced by a supportive and enjoyably competitive House system in which all students participate.
