Are you a passionate about learning and would really like to make a difference to children’s lives? We are looking for a confident and inspiring teacher to join our cheerful, friendly and hardworking team in either KS1 or KS2. We welcome applications from both experienced teachers and ECTs.

Mandeville is a 2 form entry school with a morning only Nursery. We have a reputation for being a friendly, inclusive and diverse school that values every child in their own right. This was confirmed by our recent Ofsted inspection report (Nov 2021):

“…Everyone feels valued as members of one large, happy school community…. Pupils are kind to each other. Pupils and staff all get on well together because staff model courtesy and understanding… Pupils are keen to learn, and experience a curriculum that is carefully planned and excites their interests….Staff know the pupils well, personally and academically.”

We have high standards and will offer you excellent professional development in return for your commitment to deliver the best possible teaching and learning for our children. Many of our children do not come from privileged backgrounds and our aim is to make a difference to children's lives by removing some of the barriers to their learning.

  • Excellent CPD opportunities throughout your career with us
