Old Palace is a member of the Whitgift Foundation, a charity committed to providing a first rate education to boys and girls in Croydon and its surrounds. It provides a significant number of bursaries to support students through the Foundation Schools.
The learning and welfare of our children drives and motivates all Old Palace staff who are enthusiastic about their work.

We are looking for a professional who is passionate about working with children and about the importance of education. We seek someone who has high expectations of themselves and of the children in their care, who is an effective communicator and who is prepared to learn and develop as a practitioner.
