Why work at Wychwood?
Based in the northern sector of Oxford and close to many historical features of the city including the University of Oxford, Wychwood provides more opportunities than most to a rich variety of academic enrichment, material, venues, and speakers. Close transport links to London and all that the capital city offers further adds to the attraction.
Wychwood has a palpable, shared spirit that celebrates individuality. The shared ethos here is such that, as soon as you enter the school, there is a tangible feeling of warmth, care and positive, meaningful engagement. We are a very friendly, collaborative team of diverse and creative people, highly committed to educating individuals in a supportive and nurturing environment. We enjoy meeting and welcoming new members of staff to our team, drawing on the strengths and experience of the whole staff body for the future development of the school.
It is the duty of independent schools and in particular boarding schools to promote and safeguard the welfare of children in their care. Wychwood School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), and online and open social media checks. At Wychwood we are aware that pupils may suffer physical, sexual, domestic, emotional or other forms of abuse either at home or away from the school, or within school itself. There are clearly laid down and recognised policies and procedures for dealing with abuse which are available to see on request. The school follows the DfE statutory guidance given in the latest version of Keeping Children Safe in Education.
