  • Full-time | Temporary | Fixed Term | Maternity


An inspirational full-time teacher of Drama is required to join this successful department from April 2022 to cover maternity leave for 1 year. Drama is a well-established academic subject at LEH, with impressive results in both GCSE and A level.


Our extra-curricular provision is outstanding, with a rich and diverse range of activities being offered to our pupils. One example of this is the Write the Girl project: an industry-leading initiative to create and perform original writing for students.

What we offer:

  • LEH is a thriving school situated on a 24-acre site in south west London. It has a vibrant and diverse community, and LEH students are renowned for their academic prowess as well as their success across an extraordinarily wide range of co-curricular activities, including sport, music, and drama.
  • We have state-of-the-art facilities, and we encourage staff to make the most of the school’s swimming pool, tennis courts, free lunches, on-site parking and library resources.
  • A list of our attractive range of benefits can be found here.

How to apply:

An application pack is available from the School’s website by clicking here. Applications must be made on the School’s own form and should be sent to personnel@lehs.org.uk.

The closing date is noon on Thursday, 20th January 2022.

CVs will not be considered and should not be submitted.

Safeguarding Statement:

All staff working in the School will have some contact with children and will therefore be in regulated activity. Staff with teaching duties will be responsible for the pupils that they teach and may also have additional specific pastoral or other responsibilities for other pupils they do not teach. In addition, all staff will regularly interact with pupils who may seek assistance or otherwise interact with them whilst moving around the School. In all cases, the post holder’s responsibility for promoting and safeguarding the welfare of the pupils is to adhere to and ensure compliance with the School’s safeguarding policies and procedures at all times.

The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the School is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are “spent” unless they are “protected” under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.

Lady Eleanor Holles is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
