Teacher of English

For 1 September 2019

The Godolphin and Latymer School is one of the country’s leading independent day schools for girls, located on a six acre site in Hammersmith, London.  The School’s facilities are excellent, making it an exciting place to both learn and work.  The bright, creative and motivated girls at Godolphin and Latymer receive unrivalled academic and pastoral support and outstanding examination results are achieved. 


Taught by a talented, experienced and highly qualified department of twelve, English subjects at the School are thriving.  The girls demonstrate a genuine enthusiasm for the subject and there is a large take up for it in the Sixth Form.  There is a very active extra-curricular offering within the department, to which all members of the department contribute.  All staff are expected to support the wider school extra-curricular programme also.


We seek to appoint a passionate and well-qualified Teacher of English to teach across the school from 1 September 2019, on a full time and permanent basis.


Applicants must be willing to support the use of teaching strategies which encourage and facilitate independent learning and self-efficacy.  It is of vital importance that the post-holder can demonstrate flexibility, adaptability and the capacity to thrive in a large and busy department.  The ability to teach English Literature to A Level is essential.  There might be the opportunity to teach English Language to A Level if that is of interest.  Candidates should possess the subject knowledge and skills to teach up to Higher Level IB English; however, prior experience of teaching the IB is not essential.


The salary will be commensurate with the post and will depend upon qualifications and experience.
