We offer the rigour, breadth and balance of the English National Curriculum which will ensure all of our students from the 50 different nationalities will achieve success in the classroom, in one of the many laboratories, on the sports field, in the swimming pool, in the music room or on the stage of our 600 seat auditorium.

The Job

Primary School Teacher - KS1

Due to growth of the school  we are looking for applications from enthusiastic, hard-working and talented teachers who wish to develop their teaching career in an international setting. If successful, you would be joining a very supportive committed group of professionals with a mix of young and more experienced teachers.

You will be working in a five star environment in a brand new, purpose built school. The classrooms, laboratories, studios, sports facilities and auditorium are all state of the art and it’s unlikely you will have worked in such a facility. The Primary School is designed and built for 6 classes in each year group. Each block of 12 classes has dedicated teacher work room where you can do your PPA. The workrooms have all got desks, lockable lockers and access to printers. When you’re doing your PPA your students will be taught by specialist teachers for music, PE and Spanish.

All classrooms have the latest Interactive Touch Screen Boards and easy access to carefully landscaped indoor and outdoor play areas. As well as you own amazing work environment you will be encouraged and expected to make use of all the specialist rooms throughout the school.

We place a lot of importance on stage as well as age, so we are interested in hearing from teachers with a wide range of experience of all Stages of Learning. If you have teaching experience of more than one Key Stage we are keen to hear from you.

Our teachers need to be creative, caring and passionate about children’s learning. Our classrooms are active and our students participate in their learning.

As most of our students do not have English as their mother tongue we place a lot of emphasis on speaking, listening and learning to read. Experience of teaching phonics will be necessary to work in Key Stage 1 and Lower Key Stage 2.
