Primary class teacher
Belleville Wix Academy is a 1.5 form entry south London primary school, located between the bustling centre of Battersea and the open space of Clapham Common.
Our school has a unique 'bicultural' ethos. We share our site and work very closely with a French primary school, École de Wix, and between us we offer three different streams on site - an English stream run by Belleville Wix, a French stream run by the French school, and a jointly run bilingual stream. Children from all streams play together, eat together and wear the same uniform.
We are part of the Quality First Education trust and quality is at the heart of what we do. We firmly believe that “the quality of a school cannot exceed the quality of its teachers” and we invest in our staff from the moment they join us.
We seek excellent primary class teachers to join our team. Whether you are newly qualified or more experienced, we'd love to hear from you. We keep applications open all year round and we look at applications as we receive them, so your early response is encouraged. We have positions available from September and may also have some earlier opportunities.
This role is subject to an enhanced DBS with barred list check.
