NLCS (Singapore) is looking for an enthusiastic, highly qualified and committed Junior School Teacher (Pre KG to Grade 5), with an outstanding track record of success, from January 2022. This is a unique opportunity to join an outstanding school at an exciting stage of our development, drawing on the significant educational expertise and resources of NLCS International.
The successful candidate will be a Classroom Teacher for up to 24 students, and will be responsible for their well-being, teaching and learning; they will be assisted by teaching assistants, with some subjects being taught by specialist teachers. The appointee will also be responsible for organising the work of the teaching assistants and share in responsibilities for curriculum displays, performances and organising some aspects of special events. All teachers within the Junior School will work closely with the Deputy Head (Curriculum).
The Junior School shares its aims with the Senior School, providing an ambitious, stimulating subject rich education for children aged 3-11. This is led by the Classroom Teachers who provide a safe and supportive learning environment with strong pastoral care, which prepares students to be confident when they enter the Senior School aged 11. In keeping with the School’s pastoral policy and the School’s aims and values, the appointee will offer support to the learning and pastoral needs of individual students, where required. All members of staff are expected to contribute actively to the co-curricular life of the School. The school is a candidate school to offer the PYP and we are excited about the unique experiences that the NLCS and PYP approaches will provide to our students.
The ethos of NLCS (Singapore) echoes that of NLCS (UK) – every effort is made to recreate the ethos of the UK ‘parent’ school, whilst taking into account and remaining sensitive to the local culture and context.
The School aims to provide a first-rate ambitious academic education for every child, which inspires a life-long love of learning and gives the knowledge, attitudes and confidence to flourish.
At North London Collegiate schools, academic success is gained, not through an emphasis on results, but by creating an atmosphere of rigorous scholarship; students are encouraged to study beyond the examination syllabus in order to develop their intellectual independence and love of their subjects. The pastoral well-being is of the utmost importance and good relationships are fostered between students and staff, as well as between the students themselves.
The curriculum reflects the academic ambition and aspirations of NLCS (UK), and schemes of work will broadly reflect the curriculum of NLCS (UK). This is supported by an extensive co-curricular programme of Sport, Music, Drama and other activities, which closely reflects that at NLCS (UK), and are provided to enrich and broaden the education offered, developing the talents and confidence of students.
North London Collegiate School (UK) was founded in 1850 by Frances Mary Buss; her aim was to offer an academically ambitious education to girls, similar to that available to their brothers. The School has pioneered women’s education for over 170 years and remains among the highest achieving schools in the UK. Exam results regularly top the UK league tables and the School has repeatedly outperformed other prestigious schools in terms of Oxbridge success rates.
In 2011, NLCS opened its first international school in South Korea: NLCS Jeju. The School, now entering its ninth year of operation and has established itself as one of the regions most successful schools.
In September 2017, NLCS opened its second branch school in the UAE: NLCS Dubai.
