Come and Work With Us

'There is a certain magic about Tower House School, palpable on first entry into our wonderful community. As a single form entry boys’ preparatory school for 180 boys covering Reception to Year 8, we prepare pupils for the top senior schools in the UK.

We aim to provide academic excellence within a happy, stimulating and rich learning environment, where all boys are cared for and treated as individuals. We seek to give boys time to learn about themselves as individual learners, to develop their skills of thinking, creativity and inquiry. We encourage curiosity, debate and open communication.

We want every THS boy to love being at school! This exciting and stimulating environment is a wonderful place to work and our staff benefit from our cohesive and cooperative approach.'
