Why Work at Hillbrook
Hillbrook is more than a place of work – it is a community.
We are a well-resourced school with dedicated art, music and PE teachers. We also have maths and English leaders who are non-class based – an excellent resource for all staff to access. The school has two dedicated games areas (MUGAs), the latest EYFS external play equipment, ping pong tables, a school field, a music room and a beautiful art space to inspire our children. We are lucky to have an onsite children’s centre and an ASD resource base nursery. Currently, we are working on a project to develop a brand new library.
We have a Staff Social Secretary who organises regular events ranging from brunch to trampoline parties and picnics. Physical wellbeing is also a priority – currently, there is a Yoga Club, Sports Club and the odd Fun Run for those with a more competitive spirit! Wellbeing is important to us with a Summer BBQ, Hillbrook Quiz and a winter social along with ‘wellbeing weeks’. There are also regular maths riddle competitions among staff – the winner receives a well-earned treat. Plus, like all Wandsworth teachers, Hillbrook staff are entitled to use Wandsworth Leisure Centres at a concessionary rate.
CPD matters at Hillbrook. There are opportunities for staff to attend internal and external training, including a tailored programme for support staff, and network with colleagues from other schools. Engaging and relevant INSET days are held and recent topics have included the Art of Being Brilliant and Developing Professional Learning Communities.
We have a full induction programme to get new staff started and comfortable as quickly as possible. One of our class teachers is committed to developing and guiding support staff. We also have a dedicated HR Officer who will be happy to advise you with any issues relating to your employment contract, absences, your payslip or general admin support.
We look forward to welcoming you to Hillbrook Primary School!
