Why join us?

Woodbridge School is one of the top academic schools in Suffolk, located in a beautiful part of the county, yet only one hour 20 minutes from London.   As a school, we are very aware that all our pupils will need the skills and attributes to thrive in an ever more competitive world. This means excellent academic achievement, and it is a given that they will receive that at Woodbridge, but academic results alone are not enough. It also means developing empathy, creativity and self-confidence to ensure our pupils emerge happy, confident, well-balanced young men and women.  

Woodbridge School has high expectations of its staff but are rewarded with longer holidays than the maintained sector (term time is only 34 weeks).  All teachers are offered membership of the Teachers’ pension scheme and class sizes are small.  There is ample opportunity to take on extra responsibility for staff who wish to.  Fee remission is also available for staff with children who wish to attend Woodbridge School from pre-prep through to the Senior School.  Woodbridge is a set in lovely grounds with extensive sporting facilities.  All staff enjoy free parking and free lunches (in term time).  It is a happy school to work in and Suffolk provides a good quality of life.

Who are we looking for?

We seek to appoint an enthusiastic and talented Head of Classics to lead and teach Latin and Classical Civilisation up to and including A Level, ideally with the ability to teach Greek to GCSE.     As a highly motivated and inspirational teacher, you will be working alongside dedicated colleagues to promote a love of Classics both inside and outside the classroom.   The successful applicant will be expected to contribute fully to the pastoral and the exciting co-curricular life at the School.  Applications are invited from all those who meet the necessary criteria.  

We have excellent facilities and you would be joining a warm, friendly working environment.  For more information about our school and this superb opportunity please go to  or apply directly on TES.
