About the school:

Traill International School is one of Bangkok’s longest established and most successful schools with a heritage spanning over 50 years. We are an Early Years to Year 13 “through” school providing the English National Curriculum throughout our Early Years Foundation stage into Key Stages 1,2,3 and then IGCSE and A Levels.  We believe a first class education will expand students’ choices and enrich their experiences, allowing them to fulfill their potential and make the most of life's opportunities.  We work hand in hand with our students to maximise their potential and as a result our examination results are well above the national average for the UK and are better than most comparable international schools. Our students are regular recipients of CIE High Achievers Awards amongst many other prestigious accolades and when students graduate from Traill, they are in the best possible position to secure scholarships at some of the finest universities in the world.

The welfare of the students and staff is at the heart of everything we do at Traill and from the moment you enter our doors, you are aware of the school’s welcoming atmosphere.   The founders of the school set out to create a school where children received an excellent academic education set against the background of a warm and supportive atmosphere.  There is the successful formula which has made us the school we are today.  Our school motto is “Everyone is someone at Traill” and this says everything you need to know about the value we place on each and everyone here.

We are fully accredited by Education Development Trust (EDT), British Schools Overseas (BSO) and Sor Mor Sor (Department of Education in Thailand).  We are also members of the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA), Bangkok International Schools Activities Conference (BISAC) and Thailand International Schools Activities Conference (TISAC).

What we are looking for:

We are looking to recruit an experienced and enthusiastic Vice Principal to enhance our team of senior managers and work closely with the Head of Primary and Secondary.  We need someone who is passionate about the education of children of all ages, as we are an all- through school from Pre-KG to Year 13.  The focus of the role would be to develop consistent policies and practices throughout the school and implement uniform standards in accordance with the school’s ethos.  

Candidates must have a thorough understanding of either the British primary or secondary curriculum and be able to drive excellence by valuing and developing others.  You should be a qualified teacher with extensive experience of both hands-on teaching and management in education. The ideal candidate would also have strong leadership and people management skills and have a flair for setting and meeting challenging performance targets. 

A limited teaching load will be expected, in your chosen subject and/or age range.

The successful candidate would also be expected to deputise for the Principal in his absence.

Remuneration will be competitive.
