A school’s most important resource is its staff and Arnold House aims to recruit, reward and retain the best.

If you are considering applying for an advertised post, this section of the website should be your starting point.

Teaching at Arnold House is fast-paced and demanding and, in recognition of this fact, teachers have generous non-contact time for lesson preparation in their well-equipped common room and work room. 

Professional development is at the forefront of the school’s five-year strategic plan with teachers encouraged to attend courses on a wide range of subjects. Regular monitoring of teaching and an appraisal with the Headmaster every two years ensures high standards and can lead to career development within the school or through promotion elsewhere. In the last nine years, two members of staff have gone on to be Heads at other prep schools and a third has moved on to be deputy head at another leading London preparatory school.

Teachers give generously of their time at Arnold House, sharing their interests and enthusiasms with the pupils in the School’s activities programme with many staff participating in the coaching of games or leading school trips abroad and in this country. 

Small classes of well motivated and talented pupils, generous pay and great conditions are just some of the reasons why teachers come to Arnold House but the main reason we are able to recruit the best, is that this is a happy school with a distinct and strong ethos.
