We are currently recruiting for a passionate, knowledgeable and experienced teacher of Economics who is able to pass on their enthusiasm of the subject to their students.  Economics is extremely popular at Waldegrave. The ability to teach another subject would be an advantage.  In turn you will be part of an innovative and ambitious social sciences team that encourages and shares their knowledge and experience.  

Waldegrave is an outstanding and over-subscribed comprehensive school for girls aged 11 to 16, with a successful co-educational sixth form.  We are a school whose aim is that everyone enjoys learning, feels valued and experiences success.  We are a positive, supportive community with an active PTA, engaged student parliament and strong governing body.  

We encourage teachers and leaders to work collaboratively, whilst maintaining individual autonomy, to develop the curriculum and school to be the best it can be.  We are a Googleschool and whilst maintaining the rigour of traditional learning we embrace the use of new technology to support this. Utilising this technology is also a key part of how we can work more collaboratively and improve communication as a school, supporting more flexible approaches to working.  Behaviour for learning is strong and underpinned by clear policies and support for staff and students.  Our inclusion and well-being teams are excellent and provide integrated support, care and understanding.

We value our staff and are committed to running a school in which staff can grow and progress in their careers.  We are a national teaching school and support the delivery of initial teacher education and NPQML/NPQSL programmes. Our values, combined with enthusiasm and hard work, have proved to be successful in terms of our students consistently achieving outstanding results, an Ofsted “outstanding” rating (2018) and a keen student body and alumni who are proud to be Waldegrave students. In 2016 Waldegrave School was awarded ‘Comprehensive School of the Year’ by The Sunday Times and in 2019 achieved accreditation as a World Class School.
