Bromsgrove International School, Thailand, is a well-established co-educational boarding and day school for over 465 students from ages 2 to 18. The school follows the English National Curriculum, adapted for our international context, from EYFS through to IGCSE, A-Levels and BTEC. We are affiliated to Bromsgrove School, one of the UK’s most prestigious independent boarding and day schools, steeped in over 450 years of history. We aim to utilise the very best aspects of that educational heritage whilst also fostering in our students a love of independent learning and shaping them to become truly global citizens. The school is a fully accredited member of the Council of International Schools (CIS) and is also a full member of the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA). The school is spread across two campuses: the Early Years Campus (Pre-Nursery to Year 1) and Windsor Park Campus (Year 2 to Year 13). The main Windsor Park campus is located on the idyllic Windsor Park Golf Course on the outskirts of Bangkok, within easy reach of Suvarnabhumi International Airport and is approximately 50 minutes away from the Sukhumvit downtown Bangkok.

Over the past three years the school has grown markedly, in both our student numbers and our reputation for academic excellence and is now the international school of choice in the Eastern Bangkok area. We now seek a Head of Mandarin Chinese who wishes to be part of a professionally dynamic, supportive and forward thinking learning community, in a wonderful Southeast Asian setting.   

The Mandarin Chinese department has grown rapidly in size as more and more of our students opt to study this global language throughout the Primary and Secondary phases of the school. We now seek an outstanding subject leader to oversee the next phase of development and growth in this important curriculum area. The successful candidate would ideally be able to teach across all phases of the school and recent experience of teaching in a UK school or international school environment is required.

The successful candidate should:

  • Hold a first degree plus a post-graduate qualification in education (i.e. PGCE/GTP) or a Bachelor's degree in education
  • Have a minimum of five years teaching experience in the UK or overseas in a British curriculum school
  • Have a proven track record of excellent classroom and pedagogical practice, including Assessment for Learning and Accelerated Learning
  • Have a thorough knowledge of Primary and Secondary Chinese Mandarin curricula, including IGCSE and A Level
  • Have an advanced ability to use ICT to support teaching and learning 
  • Be able to engage, motivate and support children, staff and parents
  • Be a reflective practitioner with the ability to think creatively and innovate
  • Be a positive and enthusiastic member of the staff room
  • Be willing to be fully involved in the extra-curricular life of the Boarding School

The school offers a competitive international salary and benefits package, comparable to similar international schools in the region. For further details of the school and to get a flavour of who we are, please visit our website at www.bromsgrove.ac.th

To apply for this position please submit a full letter of application, curriculum vitae with a minimum of two referees (one of which must be your current Headteacher/Principal) and a recent passport photograph directly to Dr Dan Moore, Headmaster at recruitment@bromsgrove.ac.th
