Scarborough College, an award winning school ranked in the Top 3 UK Small Independent Schools in 2017, is seeking a dynamic, inspiring and committed Lead Teacher of English within its Prep School from September.
The most suitable candidates will be subject specialists with a real passion for English and for developing pupils' skills in reading, writing, speaking and drama. The post-holder will take responsibility for the planning, delivery and development of English across the entire Prep School and will teach lessons within Years 3 to 8. For those seeking further professional development and challenge, some teaching at GCSE and/or IB Level within the adjoining Senior School can be made available.
Scarborough College is a delightful and rewarding school in which to work with motivated children, supportive parents and colleagues, superb facilities and a glorious location just five minutes from the beach. An average class size of 12 within the Prep School ensures dedicated teachers can make a genuine difference to every child.
With a £3 million refurbishment and extension of its boarding facilities underway and a £2 million investment into new sports facilities on the horizon, the post-holder will be joining the College at one of the most exciting times in its history.
The North Yorkshire area with its coastline, national parks and market towns is a beautiful location in which to live and work; the quality of life is high and the cost of living low.
The appointed candidate will enjoy a competitive salary with many further benefits which include a 66% remission on tuition fees for dependents across both the Prep and Senior Schools. A residential position with accommodation provided may be available to a candidate who has an interest in a role within our boarding community.
