Due to our ongoing, significant roll growth, we are excited to invite applications from motivated, caring teachers for our new Y4 classroom. This is a one-year, fixed-term position which would suit either an experienced teacher or an outstanding newly qualified teacher.

We are an Anglican church school, and so welcome applications from teachers of Christian faith or those who are able to actively support the school’s busy special character.

As an independent preparatory school, English and mathematics provide the traditional foundations for our pupils, and so strengths in teaching reading, writing and maths are essential. Sound knowledge across the additional curriculum subjects is required, too, to inspire our pupils’ curiosity, enrich their learning and enhance their global citizenship.

Our school is very much a family, and so we seek a teacher who communicates easily and can build and sustain happy, positive relationships with pupils, parents, colleagues, and the wider school and parish family.

As a small school, our teachers are expected to show initiative, go the extra mile, and contribute to the extracurricular life of the school. And a good sense of humour is a must!

In return, we offer small classes of engaged, happy children in calm, quiet classrooms, in a supportive environment, within the Anglican community of St Michael and All Angels, and the flourishing heart of Christchurch city.

Please read the instructions on the application form information pages.
