Job overview

Stamford (Resident) Graduate Teacher Development Programme

Stamford Endowed Schools are offering a fantastic opportunity for Academic Graduates from any discipline to join us for a two year programme, beginning September 2018.

We would like to hear from Graduates from all disciplines who are passionate, not just about their subject, but who can also offer leadership in some element of the schools extra-curricular programme, and who are interested in gaining experience in teaching.

The Graduate Teachers will become members of the academic staff, playing a full role in our busy independent day and boarding schools. If, after the first year, a Graduate Assistant wishes to pursue a career in teaching, we will assist and part fund a part-time PGCE course at the University of Buckingham, so that they will leave Stamford with enhanced career prospects and the invaluable experience of teaching and living in a busy independent school.

At the end of the two year post we would normally expect Graduate Teachers to further their careers in other schools. However, should a position arise within the Stamford schools then we would be happy to consider an application.

Candidates should download the application form and send the completed form to Kay Rainsby, Head of HR at recruitment@ses.lincs.sch.uk. For further information please email recruitment@ses.lincs.sch.uk or call the HR Office on 01780 484267/273.

For an informal discussion about the role please contact Andy Murphy via email in the first instance on admurphy@ses.lincs.sch.uk

Closing date for application is Monday 19th February at 12 noon 

Interviews will be held on week commencing Monday 26th February 

The Stamford Endowed Schools is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

The Schools are part of the great heritage of Stamford and a symbol of its vibrancy and evolution. The Schools have been established in Stamford since 1532, providing a first class education for children. Today the Schools remain interwoven with Stamford life, to which our students, teachers and parents contribute greatly. At Stamford we have one simple and overriding aim, that is to inspire our students and light fires within them.

The schools educate 1650 pupils at the Stamford Junior School for children aged 2-11, Stamford School for students aged 11-16, and Stamford Sixth Form for students aged 16-18.

This is a really exciting time to be joining the School as after nearly 500 years as a boys’ school and 200 years as a girls’ school, we have joined together as a fully co-educational school. This restructure is giving us the opportunity to look at all aspects of school life with fresh eyes, and we are looking at everything from how we provide the best possible pastoral care to how we shape the timetable, how we make best use of our estate, to how AI can support classroom learning. It is a big change, but a once in a generation opportunity to really set up the School for the next hundred years.

After this positive change, stamfordians will still be able to leave here poised for success in the real world - quietly confident, kind, positive, hardworking, unassuming and resilient. We are independent schools nurturing independent minds.

"I love the idea of preparing our kids from the school room to the boardroom in the 21st century, wherever that boardroom is in a rainforest in Brazil or as a CEO or working with a charity in India. Just as we have a big responsibility, so will they. I want them not just to be content to live in the world but to change it. Exciting!”

Principal, Will Phelan
