The Rowans School is a popular and successful co-educational pre-prep for children between the ages of 3 and 7, situated in Wimbledon.
The School opened in 1936 and prides itself on ensuring a nurturing start to school life by providing a broad and balanced curriculum within a stimulating, creative, happy, caring and respectful environment. Our priority is the well-being and happiness of each child and we aim to inspire each child to achieve their full potential and to prepare them to meet the challenges that they will experience at the next stage of their education with confidence and high self-esteem. The curriculum is designed to build strong academic foundations and has strong 7+ results. The Rowans is particularly successful in matching every child’s academic standard, aptitude and character to the best suitable school at 7+, ensuring that each child continues to thrive in the next stage of their education.
From Autumn Term 2021, The Rowans School, part of The Shrewsbury House School Trust, is seeking to appoint an experienced KS1 teacher (Maternity Cover) to teach a class of children and ensure that planning, preparation, recording, assessment and reporting meet the needs of each individual child, covering their learning and social needs. The teacher will offer pastoral care and support, providing the children with a secure environment in which they can learn. They should have the ability to build good relationships with children, parents and colleagues and show effective communication skills. Patience, a sense of humour and a willingness to engage in ongoing professional learning are useful attributes. Experience of the London Day School application process for ages 7+ is desirable. The successful candidate will be required to make a positive contribution to the wider life and ethos of the school, including leading a subject area and attending whole-school annual events which may not fall in designated work hours.
