We are looking for a dynamic, academically-driven teacher who is excited by the prospect of contributing to a new international school which prepares students for English qualifications within a Liberal Arts College environment.
Teachers joining our school will have a unique opportunity to be part of a vibrant academic community that is actively engaged in shaping the school’s ethos. We are both informed by tradition, as many teachers have experience of studying and teaching in the UK, and inspired by new developments in education, e.g. the Harkness Table method, interdisciplinary projects, blended learning, formative assessment. To support pastoral and academic work, we use our own diagnostic and development program and also offer school-designed academic enrichment courses to supplement GCSE/A-level learning. Although at A-level the maximum class size is 12, students are often in smaller sets allowing them to benefit from more focused and personalised teaching.
To teach two languages (German, Spanish or French) to students aged 14-18, across a range of Modern Languages courses at IGCSE and A-level and contribute to the running of Modern Languages department. We currently offer AQA, Edexcel, and Cambridge International specifications.
