AGS Muscat is seeking to recruit a well-qualified and experienced Deputy Head of Secondary to our all-through, British International Curriculum School. With over 61 nationalities, AGS is a truly international school situated in the heart of Oman. This is an exciting time for an ambitious teacher to join our growing and very popular school. For those looking for a first step abroad or perhaps a re-location from another Middle East School AGS, with its wonderful setting, offers an excellent opportunity. 

The School

AGS is a truly Global School situated in the beautiful country of Oman. The school operates an international curriculum to suit the needs of the various nationalities of children, currently catered for in the school. We are part of Al Najah Education group of schools. Al Najah has a strong reputation for delivering quality education across the Middle East Region and beyond.

Living in Muscat

Oman is a welcoming, politically stable and friendly country. Access to a huge variety of foods and other goods is easy and Muscat is a friendly and welcoming place in which to live. 

It has beautiful scenery, wonderful beaches, a very rich culture, and a sunny climate that enables a wide range of both water and land based outdoor activities to be pursued throughout the year. It is also well situated for travel to other locations around the world. It is hot and humid in the Coastal areas in summer; while it is hot and dry in the interior except for the higher mountains, which enjoy a moderate climate throughout the year. Rainfall is generally light and irregular

Applicants will be

A highly experienced senior or middle leader with experience of both pastoral and curriculum leadership in a secondary setting. 

Passionate, enthusiastic, innovative and ready to embrace the challenges and excitement of an International teaching career in the Middle East

Have at least 5 years of teaching experience, ideally in either a UK and/or Middle East setting

Qualified to degree level and hold a recognised UK teaching qualification (eg PGCE)

Able to demonstrate outstanding standards of teaching and learning in their own subject area.

An exceptional communicator with the ability to work with students and parents alike

Ambitious and keen to develop existing knowledge and skills

Some experience of working with children for whom English is an additional language is essential and experience of working in an international setting would also be beneficial. However, a genuine commitment to support the school’s ethos, along with a willingness and flexibility to adapt, would compensate. Experience of using effective differentiation and assessment techniques are essential.

What we offer

We are committed to developing our staff and provide professional development opportunities both in-house and via external providers.

We provide excellent, high quality accommodation for teaching staff, during their first year of contract. We offer an attractive tax-free salary, medical insurance, visa and an annual flight allowance

For the right candidate, additional responsibilities at subject lead or senior leadership, with a commensurate salary, may be available.

Please complete the online application and application letter as outlined in the Headmaster's letter.

Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.

Safeguarding

AGS is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
