Bloo House is an innovative, unique independent school in Esher, Surrey.  We currently offer places to 30 children aged  5-11 years; the children commence Bloo House the term that they turn five and we have children join the school throughout the year.

We are known for our multiple intelligence curriculum and place a large emphasis on critical thinking, creativity and divergent thinking.  For all intents and purposes, Bloo House is an independent school that nurtures and promotes childhood and offers an inspiring and common sense approach to education. 

We are a school for the diligent, active, diverse and creative educator who is passionate about teaching - our teachers are subject specialists yet are able to engage with and deliver other subjects.  We especially enjoy working with committed, dedicated professionals who are ambitious, proactive and team players. Knowledge and experience of Key Stage 1 and 2 is essential as are smooth communication skills. Our children are taught in mixed age and mixed ability groups so a natural ability to differentiate is key.

For September 2015 we have a vacancy for a part-time Educational Assistant and we are also actively seeking a full-time Form Teacher  to commence January 2016. This role is varied and includes teaching English, Humanities and Latin as well as taking part in all activities across the school. We are specifically interested in hearing from individuals who are able to support a wide range of learners and who absolutely love being creative and have a passion for outdoors learning.
