Description:

Lambrook is an award-winning independent day and boarding preparatory school for 530 girls and boys set in a stunning 52 acre estate in Berkshire. Lambrook offers excellence in independent education and attracts, develops and inspires some of the country’s best teaching talent. The school is forward-thinking yet traditional with a strong family ethos and an excellent reputation.

Founded in 1860, Lambrook has sought to provide the best possible foundations for each and every one of its pupils. Over the years, a number of facilities have been added including a well-equipped Science and IT block, a new Pre Prep building, an all-weather pitch and a senior classroom block built around a refurbished squash court. In February 2013, doors opened to a state of the art Performing Arts Centre and this was followed by a complete renovation of a classroom block to add additional teaching areas to cater for our healthy pupil numbers. Doors to a new 25m indoor swimming pool opened in 2015 to further enhance the existing range of outstanding facilities at Lambrook. An exciting £6m Art, Design, IT and classroom development will be completed in September 2018.

In our recent inspection, Lambrook was rated `excellent’ in every area examined from the quality of pupils’ achievements in learning, provision of boarding and extra-curricular activities, through to the care we provide to our pupils. Lambrook was awarded School of the Year 2016 by Tatler.

Lambrook seeks to appoint a dynamic, highly organised and well-qualified teacher to take responsibility for the leadership and delivery of Design and Technology. The successful candidate will join the School at an exciting moment in its history as the DT Department moves into a state-of-the-art new build that is due for completion in September 2018.

The new Head of DT will be able to lead the department across the School and teach up to Common Entrance and Scholarship level. The successful candidate will also be willing to make a wide contribution to the life of this busy, exciting and highly successful school.

The post is open to either a specialist DT teacher, with experience of running a senior or Prep school department, or a talented practitioner who would like to develop their career in this direction.

Applications are welcome from those with appropriate independent or maintained sector experience, including senior schools.

There may be an opportunity to be a pastoral tutor should it fit with the requisite skill set of the successful incumbent.
