Economics Teacher

Oundle School is one of the country’s leading HMC co-educational boarding and day schools, and enjoys a strong reputation for academic excellence supported by outstanding pastoral care. 

To start April 2018 if available, or September 2018, we are seeking an exceptional Teacher of Economics to develop and inspire our pupils, and who is able to participate in and contribute to the life of the School as a whole. In return the School is committed to helping you develop further as a teacher by giving you access to its generous professional development budget. 

The position would suit an Economics graduate, a more experienced teacher or, indeed, somebody changing careers. The successful candidate will join a motivated, hard-working and dynamic department and will be operating in an intellectually stimulating and challenging environment. They will have a strong Economics knowledge-base and the ability to inspire pupils with an effective teaching style. Competence in the use of ICT is important but enthusiasm for the subject is paramount.

Economics is housed in the Coach House, along with Politics and Psychology. Currently a department of five Economics teachers, it is a popular subject with approximately 120 pupils across the Sixth Form opting for the subject. The Department follows the AQA A-Level syllabus, but also prides itself in providing an Economics education that is not purely based on classroom teaching, believing in a philosophy of immersion in the world of Economics. This extends to a comprehensive and diverse Economics Society lecture series; annual trips Economics conferences in London or elsewhere and involvement in various Economics-based competitions (within the department and nationally). Each year, a very good number of Oundle pupils pursue Economics and allied courses at top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

Oundle is a historic market town in Northamptonshire famous for its beautiful Georgian streets and impressive limestone buildings. The town has a spirited cultural life, with an annual international festival, literature festival, and frequent performances of nationally touring shows at the School’s Stahl theatre. The town has a range of independent shops, coffee houses, pubs and eateries. Encircled by the river Nene, the town is also blessed to be surrounded by beautiful countryside with many picturesque villages nearby. 

For those moving into the area, accommodation may be available at a discounted rate.  Other benefits include a salary on the generous Oundle pay scale.
