Twickenham Preparatory School (TPS) is an independent, coeducational, day school for children aged 4 - 13, situated in South West London. TPS has a reputation for being nurturing and pastorally strong with high academic standards and a broad curriculum.
TPS is committed to the development of languages and as such Latin forms a vital part of the core curriculum. At TPS, every child from Year 5 to Year 8 is taught Latin because we believe that it gives our pupils a good opportunity to acquire language learning skills from the earliest schooling age.
We are looking to appoint an inspirational and innovative Head of Classics to lead the department and deliver Latin to pupils aged 9 - 13. Working within a dynamic and supportive environment the successful candidate will have the ability to inspire our pupils with the love of Latin and motivate learning in a stimulating and effective way.
You will be a self-motivated, innovative and outward-looking teacher with a desire to create exciting lessons to deliver the Latin curriculum, whilst playing a leading role in departmental development projects.
The ability to teach additional subjects for example French, Games or other subjects can be offered as an option within the timetable (see below). The ability to teach Greek as an extra-curricular subject would be welcomed.
The position is available with the following flexibility:
• Full time position: Teaching Latin and other subjects
