Are you an outstanding Practitioner? Do you want the rare opportunity to be part of our growing Newhall family? If so, we would love to hear from you! At Newhall Primary Academy and Nursery we are looking for Class Teachers to work in Early Years and Key Stage One. We are looking for teachers who are up for a challenge and want to get stuck in with all aspects of our academy life!

About us

Newhall is a brand-new, state of the art academy on the Newhall development in Harlow, with the capacity for 420 children. The Primary Academy currently has 47 children on roll. It will grow year-on-year until it reaches full capacity (60 per year). The Nursery has capacity for 56 children and is open all year round from 7.30am until 6pm. It offers both funded and private day care places.

The Academy and Nursery opened in September 2018 with 15 permanent staff and we are now seeking additional staff to join us and be part of the unique opportunity to build and grow the setting from its infancy.
