Required from January 2022
We are seeking to appoint an Upper KS2 Class Teacher who will also teach English across Years 5 and 6. This is an exciting opportunity for a qualified, imaginative, driven teacher who works with equal efficacy independently and as part of a team.
For the right candidate, there is also the option of the post of Head of Upper School who will be responsible for leading our team of Year 5 and 6 teachers in delivering exemplary practice within the setting of an independent preparatory school. The post holder will be highly organised as well as being able to communicate effectively with parents, teachers, middle and senior leaders across the school. Experience of preparing children at 11+ in English for senior school transition, would be an advantage though by no means essential. Candidates should indicate in their application if they are interested in pursuing this additional role.
Pembridge Hall is a dynamic, forward-thinking school where innovative thinking is encouraged and valued. There is a wonderful camaraderie amongst colleagues and girls enjoy warm relationships with their teachers. We believe that an enriching and challenging curriculum is a fundamental right of every child: ‘challenging learning is fun; fun learning is challenging’. The ability to effectively track the academic attainment and progress of each child and to tailor learning accordingly are essential skills of a Pembridge Hall teacher. Teachers share a holistic vision of individual girls' progress: recognising and understanding the value of excellent pastoral care, alongside academic attainment. Parents are a valued part of our school community and staff are expected to offer bespoke and regular feedback to parents on their daughters’ learning and personal development.
Pembridge Hall is an independent girls’ preparatory school (ages 4 – 11) of 420 girls set in a tranquil residential square in Notting Hill. Pembridge prepares its pupils for many of the top day and boarding senior schools in the country and therefore works at a level significantly above National Curriculum expectations. It is part of the Alpha Plus Group of Schools.
School Vision: Pembridge Hall recognises that our girls will enter a complex and ever-changing world which befits emotionally intelligent, resilient girls who can embrace the wonderful opportunities available to them. Pembridge girls love coming to school and gain an appreciation of wider society and the diversity of nationalities, faiths and languages represented by Pembridge families. We believe that creativity and independence of thought are as integral to the girls’ development as traditional forms of learning.
Pembridge Hall and the Alpha Plus Group are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and employees of Pembridge Hall are expected to share this commitment. The protection of our students’ welfare is the responsibility of all staff within Alpha Plus Group Schools and individuals are expected to conduct themselves in a way that reflects the principles of our organisation.
