Teaching positions

 

History Teacher

  • Full time, permanent role from September 2020
  • Competitive salary with accommodation or an allowance provided

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an able and inspiring teacher to join our highly successful History department. This full time position requires the ability to teach History comfortably beyond Key Stage 2, familiarity with the ISEB curriculum and an appetite for academic scholarship.

The successful candidate will:

  • have a passion for History and be keen to communicate this enthusiasm;
  • have a strong academic background that would add to the school’s academic culture;
  • be equally at home teaching those who find the subject hard and those who work at a level above their age group; and
  • have excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to work as a part of a team.

An ability to teach a second, core subject would be advantageous. Furthermore, as Independent School of the Year for Sporting Achievement, a highly qualified rugby or cricket coach would find working here very rewarding.

All Year 7 and 8 either weekly or full board so boarding is an important part of our culture and over 95% of boys leave at 13+ to the UK’s top boarding schools. The successful candidate must show a desire to play a full and active role, including contributions to pastoral care and extra-curricular activities. If the successful candidate has the necessary experience, s/he may also be interested in the additional opportunity of Assistant Houseparent.

Completed applications should be sent by email with a covering letter to the Headmaster, care of: [email protected]

Deadline for receipt of completed applications is Monday 10 February 2020
