About Myddelton College Jinhua
Myddelton College Jinhua (MCJ) is a 14-18 years co-educational school, which reflects the values, culture and curriculum of its sister school: Myddelton College in the UK, but which retains its own individuality and ability to guide its own future.
We are the second overseas branch school for Myddelton College and are located in Jinhua City, Zhejiang Province, China, which is 1 hour 45 minutes South West of Shanghai on the High-Speed Train. Jinhua, a burgeoning and prosperous city with 5.6 million inhabitants holds a mix of traditional and modern urban culture. With the rapid development of the Chinese economy, more and more foreigners are coming to Jinhua to work, study, and live. The cost of living is remarkably low and generous tax subsidies are available to foreign staff.
In these uncertain times with the ongoing pandemic, candidates should be aware that Jinhua is currently one of the safest cities in the world with no cases being reported for many months. Normal daily life continues for all citizens, local or expatriate, without the need for fear or social restrictions. The climate is ideal with sunshine all year round and the local currency (RMB) is on an upward curve against the US dollar and GBP.
MCJ offers a fusion of traditional British education, with the associated benefits which a Boarding School affords, and includes both Cambridge International and Edexcel Examinations in its curriculum, and all subjects are taught in English. Students live and learn on the spacious and leafy Jinhua Campus, study for IGCSE and A Level qualifications, and prepare for admission to top universities in the world as well as a broad range of other further education establishments.
Looking after the welfare of our staff is a key priority and opportunities exist for paid devolved leadership projects and as the school grows to its full capacity of 660 students over the next three years, there will be many opportunities for internal promotion in most management and leadership roles. The award winning architect designed school is brand new and offers state of the art facilities in all departments.
MCJ respects equity in teaching and learning as well as supporting both Chinese and international staff members to offer high-quality professional development on a regular basis. More importantly, we provide a comprehensive system to help employees enhance their teaching CV, gain extra certifications and we offer Chinese language learning.
We offer many excellent fringe benefits too, such as worldwide comprehensive health insurance, performance related bonuses, paid vacation, all-inclusive accommodation and return annual flight tickets. Salaries are high, reflective of experience, potential and contributions and are negotiable with the Headmaster on appointment.
We firmly believe that we are an outstanding school which cares not only about our pupils needs, but also those of our teachers.
