Offre actualisée /Démarche pour candidater
We seek an energetic and caring fluent French speaker (mother-tongue standard) to teach our Year 2 children. In the Lower Years (Years 1 to 4) the children experience a broad and lively academic curriculum including our French immersion programme. The Year 2 Form Tutor will teach mathematics, humanities and life skills in French as well as taking the French lessons and will manage the daily routine of the class. The successful candidate will also teach the French programme to French speaking children. We are looking for a well-qualified and experienced teacher of primary level children who will be able to inspire enthusiasm in our pupils and help to promote the high cultural and academic ethos of the School. All our teachers are expected to contribute enthusiastically to the wider life of the school including running lunchtime and after school clubs, leading motivating assemblies, and organising meaningful workshops and trips.
Lieu du poste : Londres, Hampton Court
Hampton Court House is a fast-growing co-educational independent school situated in beautiful riverside parkland between Richmond and Hampton in southwest London. The school has just over 300 pupils from Early Years through to Year 13. Hampton Court House was shortlisted for the TES Independent School Awards 2020, ‘Senior School of the Year’. It is important to us that children enjoy being here and look forward to coming to school. We wish to lay the foundations of a lifelong love of learning and believe in holistic education that values academic rigour as well as positive mental health and the benefits of experiential learning. We believe in critical thinking and questioning our beliefs and standing up for what is right.
We believe that children need some (guided) freedom in order to develop their own style with taste and discretion. Pupils and staff have mutual respect for each other. The staff, including the Headmaster, are addressed by their first names. Whilst there is a dress code, there is no uniform.
