Class 6 Teacher for ‘Middle School’ Team, September 2017

The school opened in September 2012 - the first Steiner Free School in England and the second state-funded Steiner school in the UK. We are now in our fifth year as a school and our third year in Frome. The school is perched above the town and sits alongside the park.

 Frome itself is situated in a very attractive and interesting pocket of the south-west, on the edge of the Mendips, just 12 miles south of Bath and 15 miles east from Wells and Glastonbury.

This year, we have 295 pupils on the school’s roll, from Nursery to Class 7, and our classes are full.

As we continue to grow, we are looking for a colleague to join us in the emerging middle school (12+) arena. In the coming years, we will take the journey into adolescence, the 14+ plus agenda and, of course, the upper school curriculum and an exam offer at 16. To help us meet these challenges and developments, we seek an enthusiastic, energetic and talented colleague to join us on the road in September 2017.

The successful applicant will be competent and adaptable, suitably qualified and ready to join a strong team of able, gifted and resilient colleagues. We welcome interest from teachers looking to translate outstanding potential into successful teaching, as well as from more experienced practitioners. Strengths in Maths and Science are of particular interest but not essential.

The full time starting salary is £27,050 p.a., with access to the Teachers’ Pension Scheme and a health-care scheme. If you would like to have a talk about the post, please ring the Principal on 01373 832804. A job description and an application form are available from

The closing date for application forms is 20th June, 2017.
