A member of the GEMS group of schools and the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) Ecole des Roches is one of the oldest, most prestigious and well-established independent boarding schools in France.
With over 300 pupils (6-18) and 165 staff the School, which is set on a spectacular 50 hectare campus one hour from central Paris, is experiencing significant growth and has recently embarked on a major multi-million euro building programme. Construction of a new 6 million euro Dining Hall was completed in the summer of 2019, and the boarding houses have undergone a dramatic programme of refurbishment to the very highest standards.
Academic results at French Baccalaureate level are outstanding and are available to view on the School’s website. On average 65% of students were awarded the French Baccalaureate with Distinction. Of those who followed the Literature Stream 85% attained their award with Distinction. The second cohort of IB Diploma students sat their exams this May and from 2018 the Diploma has been, subject to demand, offered in English as well as French. There is an extensive extra-curricular programme including horse-riding and flying.
The majority of Ecole des Roches students take up places at leading universities and higher education institutions in France and around the world including the Université Paris-Dauphine, the Lycée Henri IV Paris, the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne, the University of Georgia and Boston University in the USA, and King's College, London. 2017 saw the first IB Diploma candidate invited to pre-interview for a place at Oxford University.
The School is looking to appoint an outstanding, fluent English-speaking, Senior School Mathematics Teacher from September 2019. The ideal candidate should be able to teach his/her subject up to IB Diploma level (including the one-year Pre IB Programme) and demonstrate excellent subject knowledge and a passion for raising attainment and expectations. He/she will also have the ability to inspire pupils and maintain a commitment to high standards and the work ethic of our school. Candidates should be flexible, hold a relevant degree, a recognised teaching qualification and be prepared to participate fully in the life of the School. An understanding of French language, both written and spoken, is desirable, and knowledge of the IB philosophy would be an advantage. The School has its own competitive salary scale and a highly dedicated staff team.
