How to Write an Application Letter to a Nursery and Primary School

Welcome to Asknaij. I will be showing you how to write an application letter to a nursery and primary school for the position of teacher.

In Nigeria, so many school leavers are aiming to return to the classroom this time not as a student but as a teacher.

In this process, an appropriate application letter is required.

Why you need a good application letter:

  • The wrong letter format will give a bad impression on the school proprietor or principal.
  • You need to convince the principal since other people will also apply for the same position.
  • You need to include the right criteria in the letter to present yourself as the right person for the job.

With that said, we all know that what we’re writing is a formal letter. Look below to see a sample:

Your full name

Your house address


Your phone number

(leave a single line here)

The School Proprietor

(School address)

Dear Sir/Madam (use either Sir or Madam),


My name is (your full name) and I’m an indigene of (your local government, your state). I am (your age) years old and have completed my secondary education (you can state your degrees here and the school you graduated from).

I’ve always had a passion for teaching and I think this is the best time to get into a teaching career.

I came across your advertisement looking for a teacher and I’m interested hence me writing this application letter.

I promise to give my best if given positive consideration.

Yours faithfully

(Your name)

(Your signature)

After writing you’re expected to put it in a brown envelope and address it to the school proprietor.
