Oryx International School is owned by Qatar Airways and operated by Orbital Education for the children of Qatar Airways employees. The original school opened its doors in 2016 and has now relocated to a new purpose built, state of the art school on the south side of the city.
The school has committed, passionate and motivated stake-holders that have the students at the centre of everything we do.
We offer the rigour, breadth and balance of the English National Curriculum which will ensure all of our students from the 80 different nationalities will achieve success in the classroom, in one of the many laboratories, on the sports field, in the swimming pool, in the music rooms or on the stage of our 600 seat auditorium.
If you want to join our outstanding team at Oryx International School, and we hope you do, you will need to be
· An experienced and passionate teacher in your field
· Able to contribute meaningfully to the wider life of the school
· Fully committed to helping your students achieve success
In return you will be very well compensated, experience a vibrant and culturally diverse city and have many opportunities to develop as an educationalist and as a person.
Early Years Foundation Stage 1
We are looking for applications from enthusiastic, hard-working and talented teachers who wish to develop their teaching career in an international setting. If successful, you would be joining a very supportive committed group of professionals with a mix of young and more experienced teachers.
Initially this will be to cover a maternity leave for the remainder of the academic year and following this a substantive position will be available for the following academic year.
You will be working in a five star environment in a brand new, purpose built school. The classrooms, laboratories, studios, sports facilities and auditorium are all state of the art and it’s unlikely you will have worked in such a facility. The Primary School is designed and built for 6 classes in each year group. Each block of 12 classes has dedicated teacher work room where you can do your PPA. The workrooms have all got desks, lockable lockers and access to printers.
All classrooms have the latest Interactive Touch Screen Boards and easy access to carefully landscaped indoor and outdoor play areas. The Early Years classrooms have sinks with student bathrooms attached.
In return for your outstanding teaching and care for our students you will receive a very competitive tax free salary and benefits package.
We place a lot of importance on stage as well as age, so we are interested in hearing from teachers with a wide range of experience of all Stages of Learning. As our children come from many different backgrounds they will all start school at different points. It’s essential that our Early Years teachers are familiar with all the development stages of the EYFS and a working knowledge of the teaching of phonics. Experience of teaching in both FS1 and 2 will be an advantage.
