We asked our children what they wanted in a class teacher. They said “passionate, encouraging, talented, trustworthy, kind and firm but fair”. If this sounds like you, then St Mary Abbots School may be the place for you!

We are a popular and high-performing Church of England primary school, set in a beautiful location just off High Street Kensington. Although in the middle of the city, our families describe our school as being village-like, with a real sense of community. We believe that as children only get their education once, it has to be right. Therefore we challenge ourselves and our children to achieve the very best in every sense.

We are looking for a class teacher who:

  • Is an excellent, skilled practitioner and can deliver learning of the highest quality
  • Is positive, enthusiastic and loves to make learning happen
  • Embraces CPD and shares our values and ambitious vision for the future
  • Cares deeply about the children’s achievements and development
  • Builds positive relationships with the children and knows how to nurture them

What we offer:

  • Polite, respectful children who love to learn
  • A supportive and engaged parent body
  • Colleagues who are warm and have a great sense of humour
  • A commitment to staff CPD and opportunities for development
  • A leadership team committed to staff well-being
  • A great location from which to bring the curriculum to life
