"Intellectually exhilarating yet principled…A real golden ticket”
The Good Schools Guide on King’s College School, Wimbledon
King’s College International School Bangkok is a King’s College School Wimbledon International School opening in August 2020, initially for boys and girls aged 2-11. We will grow over time to eventually cater for 1,500 students aged 2-18, offering IGCSEs, A levels and pathways to the world’s best universities.
We work closely with King’s College School, Wimbledon to provide a well-structured education that aims to instil a love of learning, creativity and interdependence in our students. Our vision is to engage, inspire and extend our students. We want our alumni to be successful in their own ways. We do this with the values of kindness, good manners and wisdom in a friendly, welcoming and attractive environment.
We are looking for outstanding teachers who embody our values, can inspire students and who understand the values of a UK-style education.
We really value our teachers and we recruit the best. To help us do this, we offer an excellent package of international benefits including annual return flights, medical insurance, housing and a salary scale matched to the scale in King’s College School, Wimbledon.
From August 2020, the school wishes to appoint well-qualified teachers to lead classes of students in the early years (ages 2-5 years old). This role is much more than a classroom teacher because you will be doing much more than delivering the curriculum. You will be the key pastoral contact for every child in your class and have an overview of their academic and social progress, you will build strong links with parents and you will help contribute to the house system by supporting and running events throughout the year. As well as that, our teachers help run co-curricular activities throughout the year to provide students with opportunities to explore their interests and develop new hobbies.
We are also considering applications for the head of Pre-nursery and Nursery to help support the leadership of the school.
The setting-up environment has a large number of opportunities for the right candidate as you will be involved with designing and implementing a curriculum, ordering the resources, designing house and school events, and having an input into co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
If you value colleagues who will support you, you are excited by a start-up environment in which we all work hard for each other, and if you have a nurturing approach to education we would welcome you to apply for a position with us.
A completed application form with your full CV and cover letter in support of your application should be sent through the TES portal. Early applications are welcome. Some interviews will be held in advance of the closing date if there is a large number of applicants.
King’s College International School Bangkok is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. Any offer of employment will be subject to the receipt of an enhanced DBS disclosure/ICPC, a criminal records check, suitably translated if you teach outside of the UK, satisfactory references, and medical clearance.
