Downsend is an innovative independent school currently educating children aged 2 to 14.  It is a thriving and vibrant school that provides a refreshingly different education through a broad-based curriculum leading to outstanding academic success.

We look to recruit high calibre staff committed to achieving the highest standards and have the ability to look ahead with enthusiasm and contribute to the future of Downsend.

Inspiring Young Minds’ is part of our ethos and is central to our approach resulting in creative teaching and learning initiatives and enrichment opportunities for children.

Through-School expansion to GCSE creating new school vacancies.

In September we expanded our educational provision through to GCSE – offering a through-school education from aged 2-16 years. We have now welcomed Year 9 pupils on site for the first time and, in May 2023, these pupils will be the first to sit GCSE examinations at Downsend.

This expansion creates a host of new job opportunities in Surrey for the right people as we prepare Downsend for the next phase of its history.  We are a friendly and supportive team and we are looking for the right people to join us.

So if you are a great practitioner with a level of creativity and innovation to your teaching;  would relish contributing to the extra-curricular life of the school; are ambitious and are happy to challenge and be challenged in a positive way for better outcomes for the children, we want to hear from you.

Our current school vacancies can be found here and we will be adding new roles all the time, so please check back on a regular basis.

Cognita Schools are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, volunteers and other third parties to share this commitment.  Safer recruitment practice and pre-employment background checks will be undertaken before any appointment is confirmed.
