We are committed to safeguarding children; all posts are subject to an enhanced DBS check.

Position: Key Stage 2 teacher with Maths specialism

Ability to teach Computing and/or Sport is desirable.

Contract Type: Full Time (fixed term contract for 1 term only – with a view to extend)

Start Date: 19th April 2021

Salary: £28,000 to £34,000 per annum (depending on experience)

Closing Date: Midday Wed 3rd February 2021

This is an exciting opportunity to teach at Yarrells, an independent co-educational preparatory school for children between the ages of 2-13 years. The school has a wonderful history of nurturing young people to develop their abilities no matter where they might lie. Our staff body is a lively, warm and enthusiastic group of people, truly supportive of both the school and of each other.

We are looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic and motivated individual to join an already thriving and successful department. Our pupils are happy, curious and have a delightful, unselfconscious thirst for learning. Maths is an exciting, challenging and engaging core subject at Yarrells; our teachers nurture and develop confidence in the individual so that our pupils are able to relish intellectual challenge across the age and ability range. We are a non-selective school and work tirelessly to meet the needs of pupils of all academic abilities. We hold an enviable track record of successful entry to local grammar schools at 11+ and prepare many pupils for scholarships to secondary settings.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach maths to Years 3 – 6, and the ability to teach computing and/or sport would be an advantage. However, the successful securing of the post is not dependent on these latter subjects. We are a warm, active school community and our staff all contribute to the wider curriculum as well as engage enthusiastically in our activities beyond classroom lessons.

We should love to see applications from all sectors of education.  For a candidate brief please click the RECRUITMENT PACK button below or call us to arrange a Zoom call.
