Northwood College is seeking a teacher who is clever, creative, brave and inspirational to join our energetic teaching team.
The successful candidate will be an inspiring and impactful teacher, passionate about girls’ education. They will embrace our curriculum, with its emphasis on academic rigour, emotional literacy and thinking skills. Their teaching style will balance nurture and flair, and they will be keen to improve their knowledge and practice. They will be ready to play a valuable role in our vibrant school community through their excellent teaching and overall contribution to school life.
This role is a full-time fixed one year contract and could suit either an established or a newly-qualified teacher.
We are proud of our diverse and inclusive community, one that is expertly led by outstanding educators who ignite curiosity and imagination every day and encourage our girls to embrace knowledge and discovery. We prepare our students to face the world with courage, confidence and ambition, ready for the challenges beyond school.
A sense of happy purpose strikes you as soon as you meet the girls. This tone of dynamic energy and challenge is set by their inspirational teachers. Recognising that success and purpose stem from feeling valued, we work hard together to ensure that our girls feel supported and secure at all times in school.
The Junior School provides the perfect foundation for the girls’ successful transfer into our Senior School. Intellectual curiosity and in-depth learning are encouraged through research, general knowledge, open-ended investigations and collaborative learning activities. The curriculum is rich, stimulating, varied and challenging, enabling girls to develop their skills and passions.
About the School:
Northwood College for Girls is an independent, academically selective day school for approximately 860 girls aged 3-18. At NWC, we value character and academic rigour equally. Our curriculum ignites intellectual curiosity and fosters emotional intelligence, building resilience through challenge. An NWC education enables every girl to lead a purposeful life and feel successful in their learning.
Both pupils and staff are encouraged to find and develop their passions and talents, through clubs, societies and an extensive programme of CPD. All members of the NWC community are expected to act with compassion and integrity, with respect for others and the environment and an awareness of global responsibility.
Everyone is equally valued in our NWC family and our dynamic young women are proud of their school. Looking after one another and rejoicing in one another’s successes comes second nature to a NWC girl as does her ‘can-do’ attitude and drive.
