Oakfields Preparatory School is a happy and vibrant independent day school in Upminster, educating boys and girls, aged 3 to 11.

Due to our new Nursery building and subsequent expansion, we are seeking to appoint two inspirational, full time qualified teachers to work in either KS1 or KS2 where the average class size is 15 children. ECT’s can apply.

  • Our children: their behaviour is exemplary. Our children love to learn and are always curious to develop new skills and enhance their knowledge. As our behaviour is excellent, no time is wasted in lessons. 100% learning in 100% of the lessons.
  • Our staff: we are kind. All our staff from middays to cleaners to SLT talk and support each other to help our children be the very best they can be.
  • Our location: it truly is breath taking. There is something special about working in a Grade II listed building full of historic memories that we get to be a part of each day.
  • Our curriculum: we design our own. One of the many great aspects of being an independent school is designing our own curriculum for the children in our school. We describe it as traditional with a modern twist - it is at the heart of our school.
  • We are excellent. In March 2022, we were inspected by ISI and were judged as excellent – the highest grading – in all 16 areas.
