Summer Fields is one of the premier boys’ prep and pre-prep schools in the country, situated in 70 acres of superb grounds in North Oxford. The school has an excellent academic reputation and is extremely well resourced.

In September 2018 we opened a brand new Pre-prep, catering for boys from Reception to Year 3. The school is housed in Newton, one of the oldest and most historic buildings on the school’s site. This is a state-of-the-art development and provides a purpose-built environment for up to 80 boys aged from four to eight, whilst allowing the boys to use all of the Prep school facilities on a daily basis.

We are seeking to appoint an After School Care Leader to help with this area of school provision from September 2022. The successful candidate will work under the supervision of the Head of Pre-prep to coordinate the daily running of ASC. The numbers of pupils attending each session can vary up to a maximum of around twenty boys, with another member of staff for support. Applicants must have strong communication skills, the ability to work as part of a small but cohesive team, and the skills to create a warm, welcoming and happy environment at the end of a busy school day. The hours of work are 3:30 – 6:00, Monday to Friday during term times and the salary will be based on experience and/or qualifications.

The post would also suit a student or graduate looking for school-based experience before furthering their teaching career. The successful candidate may also have the opportunity to develop their role within the Pre-prep.
