Working With Us

Thank you for your interest in Prior’s Field.

We are a school focused on the development of unique individuals. Our relatively small size is a huge advantage in this, but we also have a strong family ethos, wonderful team spirit and big ambitions for our girls.

We seek girls who are sparky, curious about life and learning and show plenty of initiative. The school offers an excellent all-round education which caters for girls of all abilities and interests, with well-established programmes in place for the exceptionally able and those needing learning support in specific areas. The conclusion of independent school inspectors in our ISI report of March 2016 is that Prior’s Field pupils are “extremely well educated”.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults and expect all staff to share this commitment and posts are subject to an enhanced DBS check.
