Applications from enthusiastic, highly motivated experienced individuals are welcomed as well as applications by those looking for a first post as a teaching assistant. 

Gatehouse is a rare find; a non-selective-entry independent London Prep School with a reputation for pupil achievement and progress academically and in the many extracurricular areas of school life. 

Appreciated by the local community for the School's values and ethos, Gatehouse School is expanding as a result of the demand for places. There is currently a multi-million pound investment in the School. Developments include moving to three-form entry, new form rooms, an increase in the number of subject-specialist teaching rooms, all from September. Gatehouse School is already enjoying the benefit of a large purpose-built performance hall. 

  • Teaching staff and pupils benefit from small co-educational classes
  • Pupils are keen to learn and the School is committed to the development of its      teaching assistants. 
  • Supportive, dynamic and conscientious colleagues.

The School is committed to safeguarding, safer recruitment and promoting the welfare of children.  Appointment to this position requires all necessary safeguarding checks.

Gatehouse School, which is part of the Phyllis Wallbank Educational Trust, is a flourishing, non-selective, independent school in the heart of the East End. We are proud of our inclusive and friendly ethos which sets out to provide the best education possible for children, establishing a modern outlook on primary education while ensuring that it retains the key values on which it was first founded. Our exam results are excellent and the school was recently ranked 33rd in the Times Top 100 Prep Schools. 

This is also an extremely exciting time to join our school as we are committed to considerable investment in our facilities with the construction of twelve new classrooms and a state of the art performance studio. Currently a two-form entry school, we will be adding an additional class annually to each year group from September 2017.

The successful applicant will benefit from being part of a professional, supportive staff team as well as a competitive salary package which will be discussed at interview.  This is an excellent opportunity for an outstanding teaching assistant to join our highly successful school.

Gatehouse School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with previous employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.
