The Grey Coat Hospital is seeking to recruit an outstanding teacher to lead an energetic, creative and successful department. Psychology is a very popular subject at A level in the school. There are two groups in both Year 12 and 13.
The Grey Coat Hospital, founded in 1698, is a Church of England school for girls aged eleven to eighteen with a mixed Sixth Form. The historic foundation of the school and its current ethos are rooted in a confident and generous Christian faith and practice, which welcomes students and staff of all backgrounds and beliefs.
The school is situated in the heart of central London close to excellent transport links. We are a heavily oversubscribed comprehensive school for girls with excellent GCSE results. 88% of students attained 5+ A*-C with English and Maths at grades 9 to 4 in 2017 with 91% attaining grades 9-4 in English and Maths. We also have a large sixth form of 240 students where students achieve outstanding results with a percentage of top grades well above the national average. The school, when last inspected, was judged to be ‘outstanding’ by OFSTED in March 2009 and November 2005. In 2014, the School achieved ‘outstanding’ in the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools. We are proud of our ethos of continued self-improvement, which characterises every aspect of our culturally diverse school. Since 2012, the school has been named amongst the top 100 non-selective state-funded schools, in recognition of excellent attainment and progress of our students at KS4. The school is committed to building on our passion for excellent teaching and learning as well as continuing to place an emphasis on our language specialism and international ethos.
We are looking for someone who will:
- be an outstanding and successful teacher with a proven track record

- confidently deliver all aspects of the subject at A level
- create enrichment opportunities for sixth form students
The school has an excellent programme of support for all new staff and is committed to professional development. We actively encourage teachers to explore innovative approaches to teaching and learning.
The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expects all members of staff to share this commitment.
