Since 1879, Hallfield School has offered an exceptional education to it pupils (we became co-educational in 1995) – making it the leading preparatory school in the Midlands and possibly the country. 2019 is our 140th year – and we’re proud of everything we’ve achieved in that time.
However, the success of a school should not be judged simply on academic results. On the contrary, the School has always nurtured a strong ‘hidden curriculum’ which cannot be measured by league tables – where courtesy, manners, self-discipline and respect are valued and reinforced. It is this strong hidden curriculum that underpins everything that takes place at the School: ‘happy children are successful children’.
This commitment is embodied in the Hallfield Children’s Charter. The charter nurtures good friends, good citizens and good learners and was devised by the children and staff of the school. Our strap-line, ‘Happy, Secure and Purposeful’, also reinforces our emphasis upon academic progress and success within a framework of a happy community within a secure educational environment.
In February 2016, the Early Years Foundation Stage was inspected by ISI. The setting was assessed as ‘outstanding’ in all four areas of learning and, as a result, the overall effectiveness of the setting was assessed as ‘outstanding’.
In the last three years, ninety-seven scholarships to the leading Independent Schools have been awarded to our Year 6 Leavers – and last year 76% of Leavers were successfully offered places to their selected Local Authority Grammar Schools.
There is something for everyone at Hallfield, and we expect high standards from our pupils in every task in which they take part.
Hallfield School is an equal opportunities employer, employing over 130 members of staff; teachers, teaching assistants and support staff in administration, finance and estates.
The current Head Master, Keith Morrow, was appointed in September 2018 as the 14th Head of Hallfield School as the school celebrates its rich and distinguished 142 years as one of the leading Prep Schools in the country.
The Head Master, Senior Team and Governors have embarked on planning a new and exciting future for Hallfield, building on its excellent academic reputation and moving it forward to reflect the very best practice in current educational thinking, both in terms of pupil achievement and pupil personal development.
We are seeking a number of people in key roles to join our team. You must have a passion and commitment to helping our children become the best they can be and have an open mind, the ability to be self-reflective and a commitment to continuous improvement. We want people to join the Hallfield Team who radiate enthusiasm and commitment and who want to make a positive difference to the lives of the delightful pupils who come to Hallfield.
If you are a passionate individual, want to help shape our future and develop your own career in an exceptional school, then we want to hear from you.
The ability to think outside the box, to laugh at yourself and come to school every day with a spring in your step and a smile on your face are qualities we look for in all of our staff.
We look forward to receiving your application.
The school is committed to safeguarding the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.
All posts are subject to satisfactory references which are requested prior to an interview, an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, medical check, evidence of qualifications, plus verification of the right to work in the UK.
The Governors and Head Master are constantly striving to improve the facilities and working conditions at the school. Hallfield School offers competitive salaries, TPS pensions for teaching staff and a private pension scheme for support staff as well as a Death-in-Service benefit. In addition, staff are provided with uniforms (for sports staff, administrative staff, Hallfieldfirst and the Estates Department), free lunches during term time and free car parking facilities on site. We operate a staff fee discount for children eligible to join our school.
