The Library is of central importance to any school with the Merchiston name. This is an exciting opportunity for a committed Teacher-Librarian to take their career forward at an innovative co-educational day and boarding school in Shenzhen.
During our opening year, the successful candidate will need to be fully committed to planning a full range of student learning opportunities, both within and outside the library.
A position of responsibility may be available to a suitably qualified person.
Merchiston Castle International School
MCIS will offer an innovative British independent school curriculum for international students aged 6 – 18, starting in Key Stage 1 and culminating in IGCSE and GCE A Level. The campus, inspired by the ethos of Merchiston Castle, Edinburgh, is designed to create the kind of innovative learning spaces in which an effective 21st century education can take place.
