What skills and experience we're looking for

About us and the role

We here at Avanti are seeking to reimagine the purpose of education. Our purpose is simple, yet profound: to inspire spiritually compassionate changemakers.

Avanti Park School is looking for a dedicated and enthusiastic KS2 Teacher to join our vibrant team. This role is ideal for a passionate educator committed to delivering high-quality teaching and fostering a stimulating learning environment. You will play a crucial role in supporting the academic and personal development of our pupils, ensuring they achieve their full potential. Join us in promoting a culture of excellence, respect, and continuous improvement.

Avanti Park School is a beautiful Primary and Middle school (Reception to Year 8) in the heart of Frome, neighbouring Victoria Park. Our school is graded as ‘good’ with ‘outstanding’ in "behaviour and attitudes," "leadership and management," and "personal development."

Avanti Park is a community school that embraces inclusion and diversity. Staff find Avanti Park to be a wonderful place to work, with "warm, friendly relationships underpinning a calm and joyful atmosphere," (OFSTED). Our staff are inspired and passionate about their roles, the vision of the school, and providing the most fulfilling learning experience for pupils.

When I stepped into Avanti Park, the first thing I noticed was that they don’t just talk about valuing the whole child. It’s evidenced by discussions around spirituality within lessons and PSHE, conversations with children, yoga lessons and much more. It’s about giving them the tools to embody spirituality daily,”Simon Goldsworthy, Key Stage 2 Lead.
