St George Madrid is a fast growing, but young school within the St George Group of Schools in Spain and is located in a prime educational zone to the North of the capital. The school has recently merged its secondary and primary campuses onto a single site, with new purpose built facilities. The school has seen significant growth in recent years, with potential for more.
The successful candidates will be experienced and enthusiastic practitioners, preferably with experience of class teaching in more than one year group of Key Stage Two. As part of our growing primary team, the successful candidate would be expected to lead and assist with developing the school´s programme, collaborating and planning within the primary team. As a thriving private international school in Madrid, we expect our staff to commit fully to the life of our school, through our after-school programme, as well as events and activities that take place throughout the year. A commitment to educating the whole child, emphasis on high levels of pastoral care and an inclusive approach to education will be of the utmost importance as we make the final appointment. As our students come to us from a range of different backgrounds and with varying needs, an interest in raising attainment across all ability levels is very important.
Candidates will also need to demonstrate evidence of being a strong team player as well as the ability to adapt quickly to new situations, with a flexible approach to problem solving. We follow an adapted English National Curriculum across our primary and secondary schools, leading to examination at IGCSE and A-Level. We are currently an IB Candidate School, seeking to implement the IB Diploma programme in our Sixth Form from September 2019.
If you are committed to child centred education, with a deep rooted desire to help every child reach their potential and are interested in helping shape the future development of an international school we would be delighted to hear from you.
