We are delighted to be able to offer the opportunity for an ambitious applicant with an excellent academic background and proven track record of inspiring teaching to join us and lead a large and successful department. The role will involve working with some of the brightest students in the College, a number of whom will be seeking places at Oxford, Cambridge, and other top Russell Group universities, some with the intention of studying Economics and related courses. The Head of Department oversees academic enrichment in the subject area and will have the opportunity to develop an ambitious and stretching super-curricular programme of study for our most ambitious students. The successful candidate will be fully engaged with current debates in the subject and should enjoy the challenge of working with similarly engaged pupils. They will also relish the opportunity to be involved in the wider life of a busy boarding and day school.
Clifton College sits on the edge of the beautiful suburb of Clifton Village, close to Brunel’s iconic Suspension Bridge, with easy access to the vibrant city of Bristol itself and just a stone’s throw from Bristol Zoo.

Favourable terms and conditions are on offer, including significant benefits such as the generous fee discount for their own children at Clifton College and the Preparatory School.
Ideally the candidate would join us in January 2020 or earlier, but strong applications requiring a later start date may be considered.
