Royal Russell is an HMC/IAPS co-educational school with over 1000 pupils between the ages of 3 and 18, situated on a beautiful green campus of 110 acres in the Shirley Hills near Croydon. We have over 150 boarding students in the Senior School, and are proud of our day and boarding facilities that rank amongst the best in the South of England.  Our pupils, parents and staff experience a warm and friendly environment with strong pastoral care for every pupil alongside a comprehensive co-curricular and enrichment programme. We aim to build on this alongside improving academic success to continue to be the family school of choice in South London. The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) has recently judged the school as ‘excellent’ in all areas.    

We are seeking to appoint an innovative and inspirational teacher with the passion and enthusiasm to drive standards higher within a successful department.

The Design and Technology Department, from September 2018, will consist of two full-time and one part-time member of staff, supported by a specialist technician. The Department has benefited from a recent refurbishment, comprising of two workshop rooms and an ICT suite, all of which are well equipped with both traditional and modern CNC processes. A particular benefit to the students and staff are small class sizes, which is currently set at 12 students and provide excellent opportunities for teaching and learning.      

A willingness to contribute to the extra-curricular programme and support the pastoral life of our school is essential.    

The Royal Russell pay scale which is above SNS includes a generous allowance for suitably qualified and experienced staff. Allowances are available for specific pastoral and academic responsibilities.
