Job overview
The Lower School includes Early Years (Pre-Nursery to Reception) and the Pre-Prep School (Y1-Y5). It encourages students to become independent learners; from taking a greater role in their own personal organization to increasing their ability for independent thought and responsibility for their own learning. Students entering Early Years’ experience a vibrant and lively learning environment. Concepts essential to forming a strong foundation in basic skills are explored on a daily basis and the integrated day is conducive to exploration, enquiry and interaction both in and outside the classroom. In the Pre-Prep School, students experience a more formal structure to the School day with discrete subject lessons, an increased number of specialist lessons and an extra-curricular programme. Throughout both phases there is a strong emphasis on Language and Learning and many of the students speak English as a second language. An ability to support Language learning would be a significant advantage.

The Lower School is comprised of our main campus at Hegezhuang and the City Campus Infant School which is on a separate site at Anzhenxili.

We seek to employ teachers in the Lower School with the ability and commitment to enhance the life of an ‘all through School’, and to work effectively and collaboratively in a team dedicated to further establishing and developing the School. The Lower School team aims to deliver a stimulating and challenging curriculum and the most important part of the role is the classroom teaching and associated pastoral care of the students. In addition to this, the School’s emphasis on activities outside the classroom means that an effective and varied contribution to the extra-curricular programme is also required. There is an after school “Lions Club” for students in EY and Y1 and a wider Enrichment Activity programme for students in Y2-Y5.
