This is a fantastic opportunity for a well-qualified teacher of English to deliver the subject to pupils in years 7 – 11. The post would be suitable for either an accomplished teacher with the skills and experience to develop the department - and perhaps be considered for the role of Head of Faculty - or for an ambitious person who is relatively new to teaching and who can see potential in making their mark on this new school. In some cases, candidates who are capable of teaching A Level may also be asked by the Headmaster to contribute towards teaching the Sixth Form. You will be working alongside like-minded colleagues and guided by experienced managers.
Kensington Park School is split over two sites to the north and south of Kensington Gardens. The Sixth Form, in Queen’s Gate, opened its doors to pupils last year. We are now looking to staff the main school which is situated a short walk east of Notting Hill, in Bayswater, for boys and girls aged 11–16. The School opens this September and there has been significant interest from families who are keen enrol their children. Although we are a new school, we have been fortunate to attract a team that has a vast wealth of experience in running HMC schools. They have been excited by the chance to create something new and to build on all the best elements of the schools they come from.
With our wonderful central London location and a wealth of sports and cultural centres as our neighbours we will be able to integrate world-class co-curricular experiences into the timetable.
Salary is commensurate with the post and the possibility of single accommodation is available at a subsidised rate, which will involve some contribution to boarding duties.
KPS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The successful applicant will be subject to a number of safer recruitment checks including an enhanced disclosure through the Disclosure and Barring Service.
