Work At Bredon

Work at Bredon

Here at Bredon we recognise the importance of every child’s individual educational journey and today we adhere to that individual approach as closely as ever. We pride ourselves on the friendly environment that prevails at the School.

With relatively small pupil numbers staff find that they can come to know all the children, not just those they teach. All our staff are expected to contribute to the ethos of Bredon, making the educational journey for each child stimulating, enjoyable, challenging and tailored.

Teaching staff

We employ a wide range of teachers at Bredon, from NQTs to those with many years’ experience. Whilst most have post-graduate certificates we do occasionally employ staff who we then support and encourage to gain suitable teaching qualifications. In-service training and professional development are very important to the School and we follow the national guidelines for the Induction of Newly Qualified Teachers.

Non-teaching staff

We employ specialist staff, known as houseparents, to create a home from home environment for boarders, but it is important that all our staff contribute to the sense of community in which both pupils and staff feel they belong.

We also have numerous roles in finance, HR, marketing, administration, maintenance, catering and housekeeping.


All staff appointed to positions at Bredon School must undergo a CRB/DBS (Criminal Records Bureau) check, in line with the requirements of the Children Act 1989. Two written references will be required and any gaps in employment records will be checked. It is also necessary for applicants to notify the Headmaster before appointment of any convictions, or other factors, that may be relevant to their employment in a school environment.

We adhere to all safe recruitment legislation. See policy.

Bredon School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. We aim to be a fair employer and are committed to equal opportunities. Bredon School does not discriminate against employees on the basis of gender, ethnic origin, disability or age.
