Thank you for showing an interest in our school. The advertised post is full-time and can be permanent or on a fixed-term contract until at least the end of July 2025.

St George’s Hanover Square is a small Church of England primary school with mixed-age classes in the heart of Mayfair. Our school serves a diverse community with a range of ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. We are determined for pupils at our school to be successful now and in the future through excellent academic attainment and excellent personal and social skills. Ofsted recently rated the school Outstanding for pupils’ personal development.

St George’s is strengthened by working within a close partnership of local primary schools across Camden and Westminster under the leadership of an Executive Headteacher. Teachers benefit from having comprehensive, high-quality curriculum plans in all subjects, written by expert teachers from across the partnership. This supports teachers’ workload and many career development opportunities are provided through the partnership.

What the school can offer teachers:

  • A calm and purposeful school environment where the main focus is on learning. Our simple and clear behaviour systems teach pupils good behaviour habits. Poor behaviour is managed and dealt with so that it does not prevent others from learning.
  • An ambitious, carefully-sequenced, knowledge-rich curriculum planning for teachers to use in every subject.
  • A supportive coaching model for improvement and self-development
  • A professional workplace where the school supports teachers to manage their workload by focusing on the tasks that matter.

The ideal candidate will be committed to:

  • Sharing the school’s vision to enable all pupils and staff to flourish academically, personally and spiritually so that they can ‘Go, shine in the world!’.
  • Teaching using evidence-informed strategies from cognitive psychology to develop learning in pupils’ long term memory.
  • Caring deeply about pupils by teaching and promoting good behaviour and effectively managing poor behaviour so that all pupils succeed.
  • Creating a calm, positive and purposeful classroom environment through an insistence on excellence.
  • Being determined to continually develop by seeking out and welcoming constructive feedback through our coaching model.

Key responsibilities:

  • Teach to the highest standard, so that pupils make good progress.
  • To fully implement all school systems for creating a culture of excellence.
  • To make a positive contribution to the effective daily working of the school by fulfilling the school’s vision and values.
  • Be consistently professional in your approach to pupils, staff and parents.
