WLFS Main Pay Scale (0.5 FTE)
Start Date: September 2018
The West London Free School aims to provide all pupils, no matter what their background, with a
classical liberal education. We have a distinctive school culture built on a passion for bringing rich,
demanding and inspiring knowledge to pupils of all abilities. We treasure the subject knowledge of
staff, we value their passion for continuing to grow as subject-specialists and we support their
subject-specific development. We do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching across
the whole curriculum. Subjects differ in important ways. We do not jump on the latest educational
trend, embrace gimmicks or impose generic pedagogies. You will never be asked to develop a
‘growth mindset’ or to use Blooms taxonomy. There is a firm and fair approach to behaviour,
systematically supported by senior staff: all pupil detentions are centralised and run by senior staff
every day. Teachers are therefore able to prioritise the planning and teaching of subject
knowledge. School leaders walk the talk: we all teach, love our subjects, understand workload
pressures and are highly visible around school. We offer a range of employment benefits including
interest-free season ticket loans.
Our core belief is that every child is entitled to a classical liberal education, no matter what their
background or ability. We place a heavy emphasis on the acquisition of core knowledge through
the study of traditional subjects. Our pupils in each year group are enthusiastic and making
excellent progress in French and Spanish.
