Year Six - Class Teacher

If you:

  • want to teach Year Six

  • will ensure our children are fully prepared to make their unique contribution to society
  • display a willingness to foster and develop home-school links 
  • ooze enthusiasm, motivation and creativity
  • are ambitious and want to be the best you can be
  • will contribute positively to our school community
  • will support and uphold the Christian ethos of our school.

Then you need to apply for this post!

In return we can offer you:

  • amazing children who are hardworking and proud to be part of our school community
  • a welcoming, enthusiastic and caring staff team committed to providing the best outcomes for our children
  • a connected curriculum approach to learning which focuses on developing children’s skills, knowledge and understanding through purposeful activities
  • induction for all and excellent opportunities for professional development
  • a supportive Senior Leadership Team and Governing Body who are committed to developing the leaders of the future
  • the opportunity to work with colleagues across the borough through the Brixton Learning Collaborative and the Southwark Diocese of Education
  • access to employee benefits through the Health Assurance Programme

We are focused on creating a vibrant community where every person makes their contribution to creating a better society. Our vision is of a joyful place where children are empowered to explore their potential through educational excellence within an environment of spiritual growth and well-being.

Our school is set in a large traditional Victorian building in the heart of Lambeth, the cultural hub of London. Our school is small and because of this we know every child and we can fulfil our aim to help every child be the best they can be. Our location brings the possibility of world leading teaching assets on your doorstep. Furthermore, our school, the Borough of Lambeth and the Southwark Diocese of Education offer high quality, tailored Induction, CPD and career development opportunities.
