Gordonstoun is seeking a dynamic, enthusiastic and innovative Junior School Teacher to join the team in our expanding school on a part time fixed term basis from 1 September 2018 to 8 February 2019. It is expected that the successful candidate will teach 15 hours per week.  The ability to teach primary years is essential.  Experience of delivering a broad curriculum, including sports such as rugby, hockey, swimming and others, is very desirable.  Successful candidates will be people who can enthuse children and inspire them in all aspects of their learning inside and outside of the classroom as well as care for their pastoral needs and development. All candidates should be registered or eligible for registration with the General Teaching Council for Scotland, as this is a condition of employment.

Gordonstoun Junior School is located in its own building in the spacious and beautiful grounds of the Gordonstoun campus.  The Junior School enjoys many of its own facilities including tennis courts, playing fields, woods and science garden. In addition, the Junior School benefits from the wider school resources of the sports centre, theatre and specialist departments such as Art and Design.  Children start the school from year 2 and transition to the senior school at the end of year 8.  There are both boarders and day pupils at the school and there is an equal gender split amongst our 121 pupils.  Boarding is popular and thriving with many overseas children from a wide range of countries. Class sizes are around 15 and are mixed ability.  The children join a new form each year, which is led by a ‘form teacher’ who has oversight of all aspects of the children’s learning and development.  Staff work as a close team who support each other and are highly committed to the ethos and activities of the school
