Full job description


Where time allows, the successful candidate should also be willing to support with the teaching and learning of other pupils, as directed by the class teacher or with other specific pupils who need support by the Head of Learning Development.

This role may be of particular interest (though not exclusively limited) to people who might be exploring a career in education and/or SEND. The successful candidate will bring previous experience working with children, and a comprehensive understanding of the needs and challenges of disabled pupils. The ability to provide physical support as and when required and to communicate constructively and sensitively with both parents and pupils will be essential.

Westminster Under School is a great environment for happy and purposeful pupils, and for all the staff who support them. Our aim is to produce well-rounded individuals with a love of learning and an enthusiasm for life, and who relish coming into School each day. All members of staff play an important role in ensuring that day-to-day processes at the School run smoothly, and in turn helping each and every pupil to enjoy and benefit from all that the School has to offer.

Westminster is one of the UK’s leading academic institutions and is the only ancient London school to occupy its original site. Situated close to Parliament and Westminster Abbey, together with the stimulating diversity of the South Bank and West End, the School has a special atmosphere.


The closing date for applications is midday on Monday 15th April 2024.

Interviews will follow shortly after the closing date.

We are an equal opportunities employer. We therefore encourage candidates to apply irrespective of age, disability, marriage or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion and belief, gender identity, sex or sexual orientation.

Westminster Under School 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.

The school is a registered charity (no 312728).

Westminster Under School is a great environment for happy and purposeful pupils. Our aim is to produce well-rounded individuals with a love of learning and an enthusiasm for life. We expect the boys to be hard working and active participants in their lessons, but we place equal importance on the boys embracing extra-curricular activities at the School.

We want our pupils to enjoy their time at School and we believe that one of the best ways to achieve this is by providing stimulating, challenging lessons. The boys are encouraged to think for themselves, to engage fully in classroom discussions and to take pride in their work. We aim to foster a love of learning in all our pupils and a love of teaching in those who educate them.

Westminster Under School is a day school with approximately 260 pupils aged between 7 and 13. The Under School was founded in 1943 in the precincts of Westminster School in Little Dean’s Yard, just behind Westminster Abbey. The 17 boys with whom it began rapidly became 60 in number and by 1950 there were 80 boys in the Under School. The boys had to compete for space with the senior school pupils who had returned from evacuation at the end of the war, but in 1951 the Under School acquired its own premises in Eccleston Square. Numbers of pupils continued to rise during the 1960s and 1970s and in 1981 the School moved once again to its present site overlooking the Westminster playing fields in Vincent Square.
