At Froebelian, we aim to deliver an holistic and future-focused education, blending tradition with innovation, which inspires children to become life-long learners equipped with the skills and attributes they will need for successful lives. We provide an outstanding learning experience, with high inspirations and expectations for all our children, delivered within a safe and nurturing environment.

• have experience of monitoring, tracking and supporting pupils;

• have a commitment to the welfare and achievement of the children in their class.

This is a very exciting time to be joining the team. A recent investment in digital learning opportunities is impressive and underlines our belief in building on the past whilst embracing the future. The governors and Senior Leadership Team have recently developed a strategic plan to further cement the School’s place as one of the leading preparatory schools in the area. Implementation of the strategy is now underway and the Director of Studies will be instrumental in its successful delivery.

The Froebelian School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
