This is an exciting opportunity to teach Classics at one of the country’s leading girls’ schools.
As a Teacher of Classics, you will contribute to providing an excellent education for many of our bright girls, using an appropriate range of teaching strategies and resources, including e-learning.
If you are a well-qualified graduate in Classics or a related discipline with the ability to teach Latin to A level and beyond with experience of teaching Latin at KS3 and KS4 we would be delighted to hear from you.
Classics at Wimbledon High School:
We teach Latin and Greek to Oxbridge level and regularly have candidates applying to Russell Group universities. The Department has a long history of running a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, ranging from Classics Clubs (‘Myths & Monsters’ for year 7 – 8; ‘Greek c’est chic’ for year 9 & a Classics play reading/film club for sixth formers), to numerous theatre and museum trips and residential trips to the Mediterranean. We take a trip for year 8 students to Pompeii & the Bay of Naples every Easter and every other year we run a trip for older students to other destinations (e.g. Greece or Sicily).
