Class Teacher for January 2019


The school opened in September 2012 - the first Steiner Free School in England. We are now in our seventh year as a school, alongside the park, perched above the town.

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 just over 400 pupils on the school’s roll, from Kindergarten to Class 9, and our classes are full.

We seek an enthusiastic, energetic and talented colleague to join us on the road and take up the task of Class Teacher in January 2019. The position begins as two terms of maternity cover, although the post of Class Teacher is, if desired, a permanent one.

In effect, this means that the post may be of interest to an applicant:

  • who wishes to fill the maternity cover only;
  • or who wishes to become the Class Teacher for this group of children;
  • or who intends to apply for a Class 1 post at the school in the spring of 2019.

The successful applicant will be a competent and adaptable person, 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.

The full time starting salary is in the range of £26k to £28k depending on experience, with access to the Teachers’ Pension 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 Friday, 9th November, 2018.  Interviews will be held in the second half of November.

The Steiner Academy Frome wishes to employ staff who are caring and will uphold the ethos and curriculum of the Academy. To support this, the Academy takes into account the guidance issued by the DfE "Keeping Children Safe in Education & Annex A, September 2018 and Working Together to Safeguard Children, July 2018
