KS2 Teacher (Maternity Cover) job summary

We are:

A lively and purposeful co-educational, comprehensive state boarding school for children aged 7 to 18 years, with approximately 670 flexi-boarders and 430 full boarders. The school is a popular choice for local families who attend on our flexi boarding package, as well as for full boarders from further afield in the UK and internationally. This is due to a wide range of factors including our facilities, academic pathways and results, pastoral care, the boarding and flexi-boarding ethos and environment, wide range of trips and co-curricular activities and the resultant attitudes of its pupils.

We offer:

·        Professional, supportive and committed staff team

·        Beautiful estate set in 260 acres of parkland

·        Convenient location, close to the A23 and M25

·        Free on-site parking
