English Teacher – Independent Day and Boarding School
Location: Hertfordshire (accommodation available)
Start Date: September 2020
Timetable: Full time
Contract: Autumn term 2020 (Sept.-Dec.)
Our client, an independent school in Hertfordshire, is looking for a highly qualified and experienced English Teacher to join their high achieving, well-regarded institution.
The school is an independent co-educational, boarding and IB World accredited institution that offers a fully-rounded education for boys and girls aged 11 to 18. Academic achievement is well-above average and most of their pupils take up palaces at the best universities in the UK and around the world. The school is located in rural Hertfordshire and surrounded by 500+ acres of beautiful countryside and excellent on-site sports and arts facilities.
The school requires an outstanding English Teacher to join the school’s flourishing department. The English Teacher will teach engaged students with high aspirations. The successful English Teacher applicant will likely be a BA English graduate who is knowledgeable in their field, having excellent academics themselves. Further, someone who has experience teaching English at both GCSE, A-Level and ideally IB Diploma will be a favourable applicant. Candidates without that experience however are still strongly encouraged to apply; due to the size and flexibility in the department, the timetable can be manipulated to suit a teacher’s strengths. The successful applicant will possess a natural ability to build rapport with young people and be an aspirational teacher. They will also hold themselves and their students to the highest standards, curating a first-class English curriculum and ensuring its effective delivery. Additionally, NQTs are welcome to apply as well as experienced teachers.
The package and salary are highly competitive. The school can also provide accommodation if needed and the majority of staff are allocated accommodation on campus. Other benefits include but are not limited to, free access to the school’s swimming pool and excellent sporting gym facilities.
If you do have the relevant requirements and would like to be considered for this opportunity please send through your CV, or call Phil Gifford at Connaught Education for more information.
