This is an excellent opportunity to join a friendly, dynamic school where all can thrive and staff are highly valued.

The current incumbent is taking a post overseas and therefore a vacancy has arisen in this successful and supportive department. You will be required to teach up to and including A-level. History at Tiffin is very popular, and there is a very high uptake for the subject at both GCSE and A Level. Results are excellent and a significant number of students are offered History places at Russell Group universities. NQTs and experienced teachers are welcome to apply.

Here are some of the key reasons Tiffin is a great School in which to work:

  • a vibrant and friendly staff, with a diverse mix of teachers and associate staff: “an amazing school environment. Supportive and friendly staff. Incredible extra-curricular opportunities. An environment where learning for its own sake (rather than just for passing exams) is encouraged and fostered.” (current teacher)
  • very bright and able students who are motivated and eager to learn, in an  environment of excellent behaviour: “as our son departs the school he certainly has an exceptional set of qualifications in his pocket, but he carries with him so much more from his time as a Tiffinian: a thirst for learning and an enquiring mind; a keen sense of self-identify; strong peer friendships as well as a bucket-full of happy memories from his schooldays.” (ex-parent)
  • an opportunity to teach your subject to a high level: “as I depart for University I would be very grateful if you could pass on my thanks to all the  teachers who have helped and supported me over the last seven years and  allowed me to make  the most of all the fantastic opportunities I have been given.” (ex-student)
  • a commitment to professional development, e.g. part-time study for Education  Masters of Research (MResEd) at Kingston University 
  • a location close to Kingston town centre, and excellent public transport links to  Central London, minutes away from the train and bus stations. We are close to  Richmond and Bushy Parks, and the Surrey countryside. Our sports ground is  beautifully situated with the River Thames and Hampton Court Palace very close by
  • benefits include: season ticket loan/cycle to work scheme/salary advance scheme for  a rental deposit/childcare voucher scheme
