ROLE SUMMARY:

 

Fulham Senior is part of Fulham School; an independent, co-educational school for children from Reception upwards. Co-education and celebrating diverse abilities across academic, creative and sporting pursuits are at the heart of all we do. 

 

Our campuses are located in the heart of Fulham and well connected to public transport routes. 

 

We offer a broad education where diverse abilities are recognised, celebrated and given fullest expression; this has been at the core of our ethos since the School was founded. Our curriculum encourages the development of creative, problem-solving individuals with tenacity, kindness and secure self-worth; Fulham has always set out to bring out the best in every pupil and we are committed to continuing this unusually nurturing culture. 

 

We have high expectations at Fulham and this, in turn, encourages our pupils to be involved and inquisitive and to show ambition both in and out of the classroom; this type of confidence, social awareness and open approach to life-long learning is needed to succeed not just in their next academic steps, but in a fast-changing and increasingly challenging world.
