We are looking to appoint an exceptional candidate to the post of Primary Class Teacher for our 4-19 free school.

Our ‘Good’ Ofsted judgement (November 2018) means the challenge is to improve this judgement through every aspect of Gildredge House as it continues to develop.

As a Primary Class Teacher at Gildredge House you will be expected to provide stimulating and academically rigorous teaching, particularly with regard to differentiation for students of different abilities and the increased use of ICT. You will work within the Primary section to implement the Cambridge Primary Curriculum with key skills at the core, while keeping up-to-date with current developments in content and methods of a creative curriculum. You will also make a full and dynamic contribution to the Primary section and its extra-curricular activities.

If you are successful in becoming a member of staff at Gildredge House, we do expect all our staff to develop their skills and therefore flexibility will be required in future years as to where you are placed.

You will have the benefits of a new classroom, together with a Sports Hall, Multi-Use Performance Space and landscaped outdoor areas for fun and physical activity, all of which make up an exceptional learning environment for our students.

At Gildredge House each individual is known and valued. Students are inspired to discover their passions and realise their academic potential. You will join a strong team of inspirational teachers in an exciting environment where learning is fun. If you are an imaginative and dynamic practitioner - with a passion for teaching, the capability of engaging and enthusing all students and the belief that everyone can succeed - we want to hear from you.

• Do you want to be part of a school where your contribution is valued and celebrated?
• Would you like to teach children with high aspirations who are keen to learn?
• Do you want to join a staff team that is diverse, collegiate and respected?

Gildredge House offers:
• continuity of education for boys and girls aged 4-19
• an expectation of high academic standards leading to Sixth Form studies
• strong discipline
• excellent pastoral care
• a range of extra-curricular activities
• parent and community involvement
Our school motto: 'Aspire'
