Working at Bremer

Frederick Bremer School is a great place to work, and develop as a professional within education. We are a creative and nurturing school where all staff and pupils are inspired to be ‘the very best they can be’.

Our vision and values are central to our practice, and you will need to share our commitment to ensure every pupil is not only academically successful but is also equipped with the skills, qualities and attributes to be a successful 21st century citizen.

We are a local, maintained state school. Our school is truly representative of our local community Walthamstow community. We are incredibly diverse, and no ethnic group is more than 18% of the school population.

Over 50% of pupils are eligible for Pupil Premium, and we have all socioeconomic groups of the local area represented.

We have two thirds boys to girls (the impact of 3 girls’ schools in the Authority), but girls thrive academically and socially at our school.

We are always looking for ambitious individuals who share our vision and values that every young person deserves the opportunities to become ‘the very best they can be’.

We offer professional development routes for all staff: into teaching, SEND support, admin, finance or HR – there are a range of opportunities here and many of our staff have secured promotions into more senior positions in the school.

We invest in our staff, develop their potential and provide a supportive environment for them to develop.

We also are looking for greater representation of our community within our staffing, so we particularly welcome applications from black and minority candidates. Flexible working opportunities are also available.

Staff Testimonies

“I have had the pleasure of working at Bremer for the past 6 years. I have spent 5 years in the AND and this is my first year as a Pastoral Support Officer. I can safely say no two days are the same. Every day brings its own challenges. We are a close community and every member of staff has the students’ wellbeing at the forefront of every situation we are faced with.

We all strive to support our students and every member goes above and beyond. The school’s attendance levels are fantastic – best in the borough and that is down to the fact that our young pupils love to come to school as they feel safe and it is a fabulous place to learn! I look forward to many more years at Bremer!”

“I  started at Frederick Bremer School as a temporary Admin Assistant. Due to the School’s commitment to staff development and talent spotting I progressed to becoming the School Business Manager.

I have completed a number of qualifications whilst at the School and feel empowered to do my job to the best of my ability. Bremer is full of uniqueness which makes it a very special place to work..”
School Business Manager

“I have worked at Frederick Bremer for 7 years now, including 6 years as Head of MFL. The main reason I have stayed here so long is because of the amazing students and the cohesion of the staff. I love working in such a diverse community. Everyone gets on and supports each other. You only have to spend 5 minutes in the building to sense what a community feels it has to it.

Students from different backgrounds and year groups all play happily side by side every day. Without the support of senior management and friendly colleagues, this job can be tough. As a working mum, I have been fully supported and even after taking a year of maternity leave off, management have been supportive in continuing to develop me professionally.”
