Required February/March 2024

Fixed-Term Maternity Cover

Francis Holland School, Regent’s Park, was founded in 1878 by the Reverend Canon Francis Holland and is regarded today as one of London’s most academically selective girls’ independent day schools. The school is situated next to Regent’s Park and has a reputation for its friendly, cohesive atmosphere. The ISI Inspection Report in March 2022 assessed Francis Holland as ‘Excellent’ in all key areas of school life.

Entry to the school is very competitive and pupils are selected via entrance examinations and interviews at 11+ or Sixth Form. Girls achieve exceptionally good results in examinations at GCSE and A Level, and progress to some of the best universities in the UK, as well as to top global institutions such as those in the US. There are close links with our “sister” school at Francis Holland, Sloane Square, which was founded in 1881. The school offers a large number of bursaries, in addition to music, academic and art scholarships, all of which are means-tested, up to 100% fees.

Moreover, the school offers a plethora of co-curricular activities. Over seventy clubs and societies are available every week: before school, at lunchtime and after school. Music, drama and sport are particularly strong. Community voluntary work, outreach and charitable activities are enthusiastically supported by staff and pupils. Achievement beyond academic results is regarded as essential for FHS students and all teachers are expected to contribute fully to the wider life of the school and its co-curricular programme.

The closing date for applications is noon on Friday 12 January 2024.

Please note we reserve the right to interview candidates ahead of the deadline and therefore it is not advisable to delay sending in your application.

Further information is available by an email.
