Ref. Number: 32834
Based in: Oxford.
We are a small independent school for 2-16 years in the heart of the countryside, yet minutes from Oxford. We are a progressive, creative school with a Montessori ethos. We aim to deliver a tailored curriculum with the children’s needs and interests at the heart of all we do.
Oxford Montessori Schools is situated in extensive grounds, allowing for many outdoor activities and a natural outdoor classroom. We have a school minibus for trips and excursions, all of which are actively encouraged. There is an extensive range of Montessori materials to aid hands on learning.
Our Primary department is currently divided into two mixed age classes. (Each class comprises around three year groups). We aim to have class numbers of 15-18 children with a classroom TA.
We are looking for a creative person to lead our younger Primary Class – 5-9 years age range – who teaches outside the box and loves the outdoors and can deliver a rich exciting program. Primary is especially designed to build on the child’s skills and knowledge from nursery, making learning fun and focusing on developing basic skills so children are ready for the next steps and independent learning.
We generally follow the National Curriculum, with elements of the Montessori method in the core subjects but tailor it to each child’s learning style. Learning through cultural and creative activities through project work encompasses History, Geography, PSHE, Art and Design and Technology. Specialist teachers come in to teach Drama, Music, Spanish, Computing, P.E and Forest Schools.
