The West London Free School Primary, which opened in September 2013, and the Earl’s Court Free School Primary, which opened in September 2014, require excellent Learning Support Officers for Reception/Year 1/Year 2/Year 3/Year 4 and Year 5.

Our core belief is that every child is entitled to a classical liberal education, which we deliver by implementing the cutting-edge Core Knowledge Curriculum. The happiness, well-being and success of our pupils is at the centre of everything we do.
