Why choose to work at Padworth College?

We are an independent co-educational day and boarding school for students aged 13 to 18 (Year 9 to 13) that was founded in 1963 by Oxford University tutor, Peter Fison, whose vision was to bring Oxford’s educational philosophy of tutorial teaching to school-level education.

Individuality is celebrated through our highly differentiated learning approach, small informal classes and a personal, first name basis. Our approach to learning is enquiry-based and interactive. Our student body, representing approximately 30 different nationalities, celebrates cultural diversity. Our boarding, with its strong focus on pastoral care and student welfare, ensures there is a balance of academic study alongside recreational and social activities. We are located close to London and Heathrow International Airport, in an historic country estate in the middle of a picturesque and safe environment.

Padworth College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and therefore applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
