Palmers Green High School (PGHS) seeks to appoint a well-qualified, enthusiastic and inspirational teacher to take forward the strong and successful Drama Department.
At PGHS you will be teaching bright, interested and hard-working pupils in an academically selective girls’ independent school. The Department works collaboratively to get the very best from all of the pupils and our record of success in public examinations is outstanding. PGHS is ranked 2nd in The Sunday Times Parent Power League Table 2017 for small independent schools based on the percentage of A*/A grades at GCSE. The successful candidate will teach Drama and English across the age range in the Senior School and will be expected to work closely with the Lower School to ensure a smooth transition to KS3. Applications are welcome from either the independent or maintained sector.
Palmers Green High School is an independent day school for approximately 300 girls aged 3-16 years. At PGHS we provide a stimulating and supportive environment in which high academic achievement and broad personal development go hand in hand. The School was founded in 1905 by Miss Alice Hum, a Quaker, and the ideas of integrity and care implicit in the founding philosophy have been maintained in the face of changing standards in society. One of our main strengths and attractions to parents is the ‘one school’ ethos, which ensures a smooth transition for pupils as they proceed from the Lower School to the Senior School. The average teaching group size in the Senior School is 12 pupils.
We are an ambitious school and recent developments have included the installation of bespoke teaching walls in classrooms and a brand new music suite and school library.
Salary is in accordance with the PGHS Scale, which is higher than the maintained sector salary scale.
The closing date for applications is Sunday 28th January 2018 at 12noon and interviews are anticipated to take place during the week commencing 29th January 2018.
