About you

We are looking for an enthusiastic, dynamic and well-qualified specialist graduate teacher who can teach English throughout Key Stages 3 and 4, with the potential to teach A Level/IB. 

We are looking for someone who is passionate about raising learners’ individual achievements with innovative ideas to build on existing good practice.

About the Education Service

The three Island 11-16 High Schools, the Guernsey Grammar School & Sixth Form Centre (11-18), and St Anne’s School in Alderney are embarking on a federated model of partnership working led by the Director of Education.

The drivers in Secondary phase education for this visionary change are: equality of educational experience and outcomes, equality of opportunity and access, and efficient and effective use of resources.

Employed by the States of Guernsey and based at the Guernsey Grammar School and Sixth Form Centre, you will be required to maximise opportunities for collaborative working, teaching and learning across Key Stages and shared professional development across schools. There is an expectation that you will engage in cross-school initiatives which may require working on more than one site to meet the needs of the Education Service.


This is an excellent opportunity to join a highly regarded and thriving department where the success rate in external examinations is consistently high. The department is also well-resourced with a dedicated team of seven teachers. 

This post carries an eight-year employment permit. If appointed, you can expect to:

  • Benefit from the stunning scenery and enviable quality of life;
  • Work in a well-resourced school that follows an innovative Bailiwick curriculum based on the English National Curriculum and which has favourable PTRs;
  • Be part of a leading development of ICT in education and be allocated a personal laptop;
  • Receive a generous relocation package to the island, including rent allowance; 
  • Enjoy the benefits of more generous tax allowances on an island with no VAT.
