Part-time Tutor of Italian

St George's SchoolAscot, Berkshire

St George’s is an independent boarding and day school with approximately 270 pupils aged from 11-18 years about 45% of whom are boarders (both full and tailored) and with a Sixth Form of approximately 80 pupils. The school operates as an Educational Trust administered by a Board of Governors, is a member of the Girls’ Schools Association (GSA), Boarding Schools Association (BSA), and is ISC accredited.

We are a welcoming school with a warm sense of community and visitors often comment on the perceptible supportive and cheerful atmosphere. We believe that a happy and successful school is one where all pupils have the opportunities to develop their strengths. The richness of opportunities within and outside the classroom are fundamental elements of the St George’s experience and this allows the girls to foster the confidence, independence and academic curiosity that lead to success. Our academic results are impressive, with the ‘value-added’ in public examinations a real strength. We understand how girls learn effectively and we regularly add at least one grade higher at GCSE and A Level than baseline testing would suggest.

Over the past two years at GCSE, St George’s has been placed in the top 5 to 10% of schools nationally for value added.

We look to recruit a part-time Tutor of Italian to provide private lessons to pupils who wish to study the language and guide them in their preparation for GCSE and / or A Level, working on a one-to-one basis.

The number of hours per week will vary on a term by term basis, depending upon the number of pupils requiring language tuition. The successful candidate will be required to work term time only and will be notified in advance, on a term by term basis, of the number of hours they are required to work.

How to apply:

Letters of application should be addressed to Mrs Liz Hewer, Headmistress, be no more than two sides of A4 and, together with the completed application form and confidential cover sheet (available from the School's website), must reach the School by 4pm on Thursday 27 May 2021.
