Work With Us

Thinking of applying? You will be eager, organised and will enjoy working with children. You might be a recent school leaver, a university student on a placement year or a recent graduate. You will be interested in gaining experience in the classrooms of a leading Independent Prep School with a distinct specialism in music.

The key is to be committed, caring and wiling to learn. Enthusiasm is essential - the rewards are many!

Opportunities occasionally arise during the school year, so please do enquire. There’ll be playground duties and some administration work. Payment may be available for after-school clubs and holiday club sessions.

Berkhampstead is a wonderful place to be a child. It is a wonderful place to work – come and be a part of it.
