Teacher of Drama and English
Inner London Teachers’ Pay Scale – Permanent Position
Lady Margaret School is a comprehensive Church of England school for girls aged 11-18. It is situated on Parsons Green in West London, and serves a diverse local community. It was founded in 1917 and became an Academy in September 2012. The school is extremely successful and over-subscribed. Staff, students and parents work together to develop each individual student within a culture of high expectations and respect. We aim to empower students to achieve high aspirations for themselves within a culture of hard work and respect for everybody. Our exam results reflect the hard work of our staff and students.
In 2016, 84% of girls attained 5A*-C at GCSE including English and Maths. At A Level, our results are consistently outstanding, with high numbers of girls progressing to a wide range of Higher Education courses. In 2016 68% of grades were A*-B. Students at LMS have a very good record of securing offers from top universities.
As we approach our centenary, we look forward to building on this success. We are looking for a talented and enthusiastic professional to join our English Department in September 2017 when we are going to introduce Drama into the curriculum at Lady Margaret School. This is an exciting new development and an important one: Drama is a subject which encourages girls to become both confident and creative. We are looking for a subject specialist to set up the Drama curriculum, beginning with Years 8 and 9, building towards GCSE and A Level in the future. We believe that Drama is a subject that will engage and challenge all our girls, will add an extra dimension to our school curriculum, and will support our students’ study of English. The successful candidate will be responsible for the introduction and oversight of Drama within the school curriculum and for extra-curricular Drama, and will also teach English.
