Westminster School is looking for a classicist with expert knowledge and insight to play a key role in a flourishing and supportive department.
Traditionally, Classics has occupied a central position in the School’s curriculum, and both Latin and Greek remain compulsory for boys in their first year at the School. It is envisaged that the successful applicant will teach a 50% timetable across 2.5 to 3.5 days, but there is flexibility for the right candidate.
You will need to be able to teach Latin and Greek language and literature at all levels and to inspire in the pupils a lively appreciation of the cultural riches of Classical antiquity. A readiness to teach Latin or Greek prose composition would be advantageous. Prior teaching experience is desirable, but not essential. Detailed schemes of work and specific guidance will be provided by the Head of Department, and appropriate support offered at all stages.
Westminster is one of the UK’s leading academic institutions and is the only ancient London school to occupy its original site. Situated close to Parliament and Westminster Abbey, together with the stimulating diversity of the South Bank and West End, the School has a special atmosphere.
