We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified and dynamic teacher to join our very successful Classics department and teach well-motivated and high achieving girls. Latin is a very popular subject throughout the school with high numbers opting for the subject at GCSE.
The post is part-time (approx. 0.3 – 0.4 FTE) and would suit both newly qualified and experienced teachers. The ideal candidate would be capable of teaching Latin and Classical Civilisation to GCSE and A level, although this is not essential as there is flexibility within the department.
The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the school’s thriving extra-curricular programme.
The job description and person specification can be found in the attached information pack, as well as a more detailed overview of the school.
