The Person

We are undertaking a search for a well-qualified and talented Library and Literacy Lead Teacher with experience and passion for teaching children of all ages. A sound knowledge of up to date teaching methods and pedagogy and an ability to instill a love of learning for children are crucial, as is a willingness to share best practice with colleagues. We focus strongly on a team approach and will provide a high level of on-going, targeted professional development for all our staff. The successful candidate will manage both campus library facilities and resources, lead a small team of assistants and collaborate with the English and Literacy Lead Teachers in both divisions. Previous teaching experience in this field is desirable but not essential, however, graduate qualifications in a related field demonstrating expertise is a vital component for all applicants.


We offer the National Curriculum for England to children from FS1 to Year 8 currently (opening Year 9 in 2021-22), as well as a fully

enriched programme, including music, theatre, STEAM, sport, adventure and enterprise options. We offer a competitive salary and international package to the right candidate.
