Full-Time Teaching Post – English (+ESL) GCSE & Sixth Form

Westbourne is a 2-18 independent school in Penarth with an excellent academic record and an excellent ESTYN report in every category. We offer GCSEs and the International Baccalaureate (IB) in the sixth form.


The teaching role

 You will be responsible primarily for teaching English A at standard level to our IB students, and the ideal candidate will also be able to teach ESL to our international students (average class size of 4-6 students). Consequently, a proven track record of teaching English is a compulsory requirement of the successful candidate – ideally, experience teaching the IB and/or ESL would be preferred.


You should be a qualified teacher and have a passion for both teaching and learning. Additional responsibilities will be as a pastoral form tutor and to undertake full teaching responsibilities, including planning, assessment, revision and parents’ evenings.


This is an incredible opportunity for an academic english teacher to challenge able students and be challenged themselves in an environment where students are happy at school and want to work hard at all times. The successful candidate will join a school currently celebrating its best year of success in its 120-year history – with fantastic external results and the finest ESTYN inspection report. 

To apply, please send a CV and covering letter to gerardgriffiths@westbourneschool.com before 22/04/2019.
