“Don’t become a mere recorder of facts, but try to penetrate the mystery of their origin.” Ivan Pavlov (winner of The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1904)

Latymer Upper School is a lively and energetic independent day school in West London; educating approximately 1,200 highly able and academically ambitious students in exceptional surroundings.  The School is extremely popular and attracts more than 1,300 applications each year at 11+ and a further 200 at Sixth Form.

If you are excited by Biology and by engaging with some of the brightest and most ambitious students around, then a teaching career at Latymer could be for you. The department’s approach to the teaching is very much focused on encouraging engagement with the natural world and human physiology, as well as developing genuine understanding of scientific phenomena and methodology, rather than simply rote learning information. Staff actively discuss the subject and its teaching both informally in our departmental office and in weekly Biology meetings. The department currently consists of seven specialist biologists and two full-time technicians.  

We offer a generous teaching pay scale alongside a Teach@Latymer Programme.

For an informal chat, please email the Head of Biology, Matt Reeve:

We will review applications as they are submitted, therefore suitable candidates may be interviewed before the closing date. We reserve the right to withdraw the position if an early appointment is made, therefore early applications are encouraged.

The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All posts are subject to an enhanced DBS check and receipt of two satisfactory references.
