Jobs | Nursery, Pre-prep & Prep School

I have never worked in a school where the children are able to spread their wings, and be offered such incredible experiences by staff who care so deeply for their subjects. The fabric of Highfield and Brookham is unique and there is not a school that I have worked in where this has been matched. I feel incredibly blessed to have worked in such a place, which has taught me so much about so many things.
