Caldicott is one of the country’s most prestigious Independent Boarding and Day Preparatory Schools for Boys. We are a flourishing school with around 250 boys from 7 to 13 years old, with all boys boarding in the final two years. We deliver a first class education, sporting provision and a rich variety of music, drama, arts and extracurricular opportunities in a friendly and supportive working environment. The school is only twenty miles from central London in a beautiful location.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an able and inspiring Classics graduate to join our successful Classics Department. This full time position requires the ability to teach Latin up to Common Entrance Level 3. In addition, an interest in teaching scholarship classes would be advantageous. There would be an opportunity for suitably-qualified applicants to teach Greek Common Entrance and Scholarship.
The successful candidate will:
• have a passion for Classics and be keen to communicate this enthusiasm;
• have a strong academic background that would add to the school’s academic culture;
• be equally at home teaching those who find the subject hard and those who work at a level above their age group; and
• have excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to work as a part of a team.
An ability to teach a second core subject would be advantageous and there is also the opportunity with this role to undertake the position of Assistant House Parent in our Boarding House. The ability to coach sport is desirable and the successful candidate will be committed to supporting this age range pastorally and will be fully involved in boarding life and extra-curricular activities. For the right candidate Caldicott would consider providing financial assistance to undertake a PGCE qualification, along with on-going mentoring and professional development.
Caldicott is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
