If you are frustrated with league tables and national curriculum bureaucracy; if you want to work in a greenhouse, not a hothouse; if you want the benefits of teaching in an international school, without leaving London; this job may interest you.

This is an exciting opportunity to join an established international school in London, to help take the International Baccalaureate curriculum forward in Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme science courses. The candidate must be able to teach a combined science course including Biology, Chemistry and Physics in the Middle Years (Years 7-11) and to teach a specialist science subject at Diploma level (Years 12-13). 

The successful candidate would join a school with high standards of teaching and learning and excellent opportunities for professional development. Dwight School London is part of the growing and successful Dwight group of schools in New York, Seoul, Shanghai, London and Dubai. 

Dwight School London is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School offering the Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma programmes. The Dwight School community has a rich diversity of cultures, nationalities and experiences, with over 50 nationalities represented and over 40 languages spoken. We are a small, very friendly and supportive community with high aspirations for our students, and high expectations of our staff. 

Our philosophy is to  build confident, compassionate young people who influence the future. We are committed to the IB philosophy of educating for a better, more peaceful world. 

We will expect the post holder to be an outstanding educator who can lead by example and has a willingness to innovate. Dwight School London is a values driven organisation and the successful candidate will have to demonstrate an understanding of and a commitment to student-led, inquiry-based learning and the attributes of the IB learner profile. An international outlook is essential and experience of the IB programmes and international education will be an advantage, but we welcome applicants with a passion for teaching who are new to the IB.

The successful candidate will have opportunities for professional development, the support of friendly and helpful colleagues, a supportive parent body, genuinely fantastic students and all the advantages of a vibrant, diverse and welcoming international community.
