Are you a Newly Qualified Teacher who is looking for a role?
We are working with a fantastic Primary school based in Richmond who are looking for a NQT to join in January 2021.
The school was founded in Richmond in 1946 and has been a boys’ prep school from that time on.
Most boys join the school in the Nursery (which is co-ed) or Reception but there are small intakes at Years 3, 4 and 7. Boys stay until 13 when they move on to a wide range of day and boarding schools, a number each year gaining scholarships.
The Nursery operates from its own site in a carefully restored building. The youngest children, the Caterpillars, are based on the top floor and the Butterflies (the rising 4s) on the ground floor. There is a very positive, caring atmosphere to the Nursery and the ground floor has an area set aside for Music. The Nursery has its own dedicated staff supplemented with specialists from the school PE, Music and IT departments.
The Junior Department (JD) is housed in two Victorian buildings which have been sensitively redesigned and linked to provide an exciting and stimulating environment for the pupils. There is a two-form entry with about forty boys in the year group. This number grows to about 48 in Year 3 with three forms. The class teachers deliver the vast majority of the curriculum but boys do have lessons with specialist teachers for Music, French and PE and Games and in some years, Computing. All boys take swimming lessons at a local pool and Years 2 and 3 use the Senior Department (SD) facilities for some subjects.
Boys move to the Senior Department site for Year 4. This is the original school site and has been developed substantially since then. It is a deceptively large area which includes the school’s theatre, gym, astro turf pitch, two Computer rooms, two Science laboratories and Music area. There are three forms in each year group. Forms are mixed-ability in Years 4-6, with some subjects settled, and streamed in Years 7 and 8. Boys experience increasing exposure to subject specialist teachers, who will teach a range of year groups and sometimes more than one subject. The curriculum the boys follow prepares them for Common Entrance at the end of Year 8.
