Working at Danes Hill

Danes Hill offers an exceptional working environment. Set in 55 acres bordering open countryside, yet commutable to London, it is a thriving school which has received an outstanding report by the Independent School’s Inspectorate. Inspectors described the school as ‘excellent in all areas’ and commented that ‘teamwork is strong’. They also noted that ‘relationships between pupils and staff, and amongst the pupils, are consistently outstanding’. We feel these comments accurately reflect the school and are indeed key to making it such a great place to work. An on-going building program is further developing the classroom accommodation, adding to the excellent existing facilities that include specialist science laboratories, art, design and technology rooms, performance spaces and high quality sports facilities.

Working at Danes Hill you become part of a large, dynamic community encompassing all the teaching and non-teaching staff. Dedicated support staff work in tandem with teaching staff, taking care of many of the administrative tasks in a friendly, cooperative environment. The Common Room President, elected each year, organises social events and charity fundraisers. Several members of staff offer their expertise free of charge to run different activities, including circuit training and the staff choir. You are also able to make use of the swimming pool and other sports facilities, before and after school, helping to burn off our renowned lunches!

Danes Hill has its own salary scale, which includes fringe weighting and full NQT induction is available. Staff also benefit from being part of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme.

Danes Hill is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.  Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
