This is a fantastic opportunity for a recent graduate who is considering a career in teaching, the education sector or is looking to gain valuable experience before starting their PGCE.

The salary, based on minimum wage for age for April 2024, is expected to start at £21,795.00 per annum. It is a requirement of the role that you will reside in school accommodation and an accommodation charge, currently set at £69.93 per week, will apply.

Additional: Graduate Tutors can get all of their meals on site during term time, as well as complimentary membership to Cheltenham College’s gyms and swimming pool.

The Prep School is situated on the same campus as Cheltenham College in a beautiful setting with its own sports fields, lake and stunning views of Leckhampton Hill.
