About you

We are looking for an enthusiastic, dynamic and well-qualified specialist graduate who can teach Business Studies at Key Stages 4 & 5 as well as Business and Management for the International Baccalaureate, or be willing to undertake appropriate training in order to do so. The ability to also teach Economics at Key Stage 5 would be an advantage.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about raising learners’ individual achievements with innovative ideas to build on existing good practice. Alongside being able to demonstrate excellence in teaching and learning, you should be committed to the role of Tutor, supporting a group of 15/16 students who benefit from a daily tutorial session. You will be part of a team which delivers the new Bailiwick Curriculum, including a range of international and UK qualifications. We also expect you to make a full contribution to the ethos, identity and life of the school, offering a commitment to the broad range of available enrichment activities.

About the Education Service

The Grammar School & Sixth Form Centre currently operates as part of the Guernsey Federation of Secondary Schools which includes St Sampson’s, Les Beaucamps and La Mare de Carteret High schools, alongside St Anne’s School in Alderney. Secondary and Post-16 education is undergoing a period of exciting change on the Island which includes a planned new structure with one 11-18 all ability school on two sites.

The drivers in Secondary phase education for this significant transformation are: equality of educational experience and outcomes, equality of opportunity and access, and efficient and effective use of resources.

Employed by the States of Guernsey and based at the Guernsey Grammar School and Sixth Form Centre, you will be required to maximise opportunities for collaborative working, teaching and learning across Key Stages and shared professional development across schools. There is an expectation that you will engage in cross-school collaboration which may require working on more than one site to meet the needs of the Education Service. The transition plans for the new structure may also mean you will work from an alternative site.


This is an excellent opportunity to join a dedicated team of seven specialist teachers within a well-resourced, highly regarded and thriving Business Studies and Economics faculty.  The success rate in external examinations is consistently high and further details of our public examination results are available via our website.

This post carries a five-year employment permit. If appointed, you can expect to:

  • Benefit from the stunning scenery and enviable quality of life;
  • Work in a well-resourced school with favourable PTRs;
  • Be part of a leading development of Business Studies and Economics in education and be allocated a personal laptop;
  • Receive a generous relocation package to the island, including rent allowance; 
  • Earn a competitive salary, above the UK median;
  • Participate in a well-resourced public service pension scheme;
  • Enjoy the benefits of more generous tax allowances on an island with no VAT.
