Lorenden Prep School

For September 2024

Class Teacher  

Permanent and full time

We are looking for an excellent, enthusiastic and committed full-time teacher from September 2024. The successful candidate will love teaching, with the ability and passion to inspire our kind, curious and hard working children. 

Our classes are small and our children are well known to us all. As a class teacher you will prize effort, be able to challenge pupils of all abilities and provide excellent pastoral care.

The role is full-time and starts in September 2024. This will be a permanent contract. This vacancy has opened up due to the impending departure of our current Year 2 teacher, hence the successful candidate is likely to be based in Key Stage 1. 

We expect that this would be a full-time role, although given that several lessons are taught by specialist subject teachers at Lorenden, there is also scope for this to be made into a role in which the successful candidate was contracted for 4 or 4.5 days per week - this can be discussed during in-person visits and the interview stage.

Pre-interview visits to the school are warmly welcomed, and can be booked in via this link - Tour bookings for Lorenden Prep 

Lorenden Prep School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening, including reference checks with past employers and Disclosure and Barring Service.

References will be sought for shortlisted candidates prior to the interview date.

Closing date for applications:  Midday on Friday 26th April 2024 (although we reserve the right to appoint prior to this date)

Please send completed applications to:

Information about the school

Lorenden Prep School is a small school of approximately 120 pupils, ages 3-11, with an excellent local reputation; most pupils come to the school from recommendations from other parents or staff. It is a friendly, family environment with one form entry and with high expectations of pupils of all ages. This year Lorenden celebrates our 30th anniversary. Lorenden was awarded the highest grades of ‘Excellent’ in all categories in its most recent Educational Quality Inspection by ISI. The Head is a member of IAPS and Lorenden is within the Methodist Independent Schools Trust.

Lorenden has flourished because staff have given generously and willingly of their time and energy to aid the academic and personal development of the pupils in the many forms that this may take.

It is the abiding hope of the Governors and Head that all staff will approach their employment by the school in that same spirit. We develop self-disciplined, thoughtful children with a cheerful ‘can-do’ attitude to life and a strong sense of fair play. We thoroughly prepare our children socially, physically and intellectually for secondary education so that they can take with them happy memories of their time with us.
