Year 3 or Year 4 Teacher

Tes Schools RecruitmentNotting Hill

Tes are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and inspirational Lower KS2 Teacher on a full-time permanent basis from September 2021. This role is not suitable for NQTs.

This is an exciting opportunity to join 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. The school 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 teacher. Teachers share a holistic vision of individual girls' progress: recognising and understanding the value of excellent pastoral care, alongside academic attainment.

It is an independent girls’ preparatory school (ages 4 – 11) of 420 girls set in a tranquil residential square in Notting Hill. The school 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 a renown group of schools that was founded in 1931 and currently comprises independent nurseries, schools and colleges, which have developed a longstanding reputation for delivering premium quality education. The group creates centres of educational excellence. Each centre retains its own identity, with the Heads and Principals afforded significant management authority, but with the benefits of financial security, camaraderie and opportunities for sharing best practice by belonging to one of the country's leading educational groups.

The school are seeking to appoint a Lower Key Stage 2 teacher; internal movement of current staff will determine which year group. Preparing children at 11+ in English and/or Maths for senior school transition, would be an advantage though by no means essential. This is an exciting opportunity for a qualified, imaginative, driven teacher who works with equal efficacy independently and as part of a team.

The Successful Candidate:

  • Honours degree in a relevant subject
