St. George’s School seeks an experienced professional to lead the English department in our flourishing Secondary School as a maternity cover, to start in January or February 2020. The contract would be  limited to August 2021. 

The School

Having opened in September 2013, St. George’s School Munich has rapidly developed into a thriving community of over 450 pupils and 70 teachers. The school continues to grow, and as the school matures we expect to reach 800 pupils. The school’s ethos of combining an enriching curriculum with family orientated care makes the school a warm and engaging place to work and learn.

In September 2017, the school embarked on an exciting phase of its development, as it moved to a new, purpose-built campus located in the city. These premises provide first-class educational facilities for all ages and subject areas. 

The National Curriculum is taught throughout the school and we offer IGCSE qualifications to pupils in our Upper School. Students in the Sixth Form prepare the International Baccalaureate Diploma. 

One of a group of three schools located across Germany, St. George’s offers the successful applicant an exciting range of opportunities for professional development and growth across the school group.

The Location

The school’s new campus is located in the area of Schwabing-Freimann, to the north of the city centre. The site enjoys good access to the U6 metro line, as well as the A9 motorway.

Germany’s third largest city, and the capital of the state of Bavaria, Munich is a dynamic and vibrant cultural centre, with a large and diverse international community. Situated on the northern edge of the Alps, Munich offers a high standard of living, as well as numerous opportunities for travel and outdoor pursuits.

Munich airport is located 30km from the school, with many daily flights to the UK, and high speed rail services connect Munich to a wide range of European destinations.

The Role

We are seeking to appoint an experienced professional to shape the further development of our English department. 

The successful applicant will be a dynamic teacher with previous leadership experience. We are looking for the right balance between experience, enthusiasm and a passion for teaching and learning which will inspire students and colleagues. 

The secondary department covers the age range 11-18 and incorporates the curricula for Key Stage 3, IGCSE and IB Diploma. We prepare pupils for both the English Language and English Literature IGCSE qualifications and offer both English Literature and English Language and Literature as IB options at Standard and Higher Level. Familiarity with the British education system is therefore a prerequisite. Experience of IB teaching is preferred, but not required.  Please note that pure EAL Teachers will unfortunately not be considered. 

Please download our application pack for detailed information.

Only applications made through the TES online portal will be considered. 

We require additional information for your application, please upload the following documents via the supporting documents link:

Applications should be submitted by the closing date of 17th November 2019. The school reserves the right to contact outstanding applicants in advance of this deadline.

St. George’s is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will therefore be subject to enhanced background checks.
