The number of pupils in our school has grown by 22% since 2012 and is set to grow further still. It’s a great time to join us and develop an education that focuses on the needs of the developing human being. Our aim, as a Waldorf School, is to nurture creative, confident, socially responsible young people who reach their full potential.

We’re committed to safeguarding children and expect all applicants to share this commitment. We follow safer recruitment procedures and any post is subject to background checks, including references and enhanced DBS disclosure.

Current Vacancies:


£13,790 FTE (£10,873 pro rata)
Term time only, 8.15am – 3.15pm, Monday to Friday

Starting 27th April 2017

Due to staff re-deployment we are looking for a talented individual to join our admin team. You will be accountable for providing excellent customer service to all enquiries to the school, and for general administration.

You will be responsible for overseeing entry onto the school campus using the intercom system and for maintaining a safe environment for the children by monitoring the front of the school regarding strangers and emergency vehicle access. You will act as first line of response to all face to face, post, phone or email enquiries and will welcome all visitors to the school, ensuring their first interaction with the school is positive, friendly and professional.

Other duties will include overseeing first aid supplies, photocopying, filing, supporting teachers with administration, writing newsletters, updating the website, writing letters and maintaining the school database. You will also carry out administration regarding pupil attendance.

We are looking for a supremely organised individual, with an enthusiastic, positive approach to work. You should have sound literacy and numeracy skills and have a track record of reception or administration work. You should also enjoy working with children and be willing to gain a first aid qualification.

The full-time salary is £13,790p.a. However, the role is paid at 41 contractual weeks (35 working term time weeks plus 6 weeks’ paid holiday) and the hours are 32.5 per week. The salary is therefore pro-rated to £10,873. The role is not eligible for reduced tuition fees.

Applicants must complete and submit an application form to arrive by 5pm Monday 27th February 2017 via email to info@elmfield.com or posted to Elmfield School, Love Lane, Stourbridge, DY8 2EA.

Boarding Parents

Elmfield is looking for families who would be interested in becoming Boarding Parents, and are able to offer occasional fairly short-term (one term to one year) boarding to students, who are mostly from other European Steiner Schools. The visiting pupils are usually aged between 14 – 17. They gain a lot from visiting Elmfield and the school also always values their contribution while they are here. However we cannot accept them unless we can find families able to host them. We currently pay £140 per week to host families and more for half term weeks. Please contact Maigread Reynolds (info@elmfield.com)  in the office if you would like more information about this.
