Join Us

We are Chesham Prep, a dedicated, nurturing, sporty, creative, inspiring and adventurous family.

Chesham Prep is a thriving school for boys and girls aged 3 to 13.  We have a well-deserved reputation, dating back to our foundation in 1938, for being a friendly, family-orientated school at the heart of the local community.  Set in the Bucks countryside, next to a working farm, our children aim high, work hard and achieve great things.

We have a teaching staff of over 60 teachers and a support staff of 20. We recruit staff who are dedicated to delivering an outstanding education for all our pupils.  We achieve this through small class sizes, our passionate and dedicated staff and, of course, the specialist facilities which children have access to from a young age.  We encourage our pupils to be responsible for their own learning and to show resilience when faced with challenges.

We have a strong leadership team and governing body, rated Excellent in our recent ISI Report. We pay careful attention to the recruitment and development of staff and a comprehensive Appraisal and Professional Development scheme is in place.  We offer a competitive salary structure including access to a comprehensive pension scheme.  All staff receive free daily lunches, on-site parking, and fee reduction for staff children.

Our current facilities include specialist areas for teaching Music, Science, Art, and Design Technology, and French and Spanish, plus a Learning Resource Centre and well-stocked library. The Adlington Hall is used for Drama, making use of the lighting and sound equipment. Sixty laptops and twenty iPads are available to use across the school, along with a range of other technologies such as digital cameras, Beebots and Lego WeDo.

Chesham Prep also has 7 acres of fantastic on-site facilities for sport, including a large 800m2 sports hall an all-weather pitch, an astro wicket, grass wicket and bowling machine and 2 large fields for all outdoor sports.  Our indoor 4 lane, 25 metre swimming pool will be opening in September 2019.




This role is to work Monday to Friday, 30 hours per week. Salary will be dependent on experience.  Whilst the role is in essence term time only, the candidate must provide business continuity during holiday periods e.g. accessing emails and liaising with prospective parents and the Head and Bursar.

With extremely high standards at Chesham Prep, the successful candidate will be personable and a true team player, with strong communication and organisational skills.  The candidate will be able to manage the pupil database, liaise effectively with prospective parents and play a strategic role in the marketing of the school.  The candidate will require strong IT skills and will need experience of working with contact management databases, and extensive experience of using Excel.
