Outer London remuneration
St. Olave’s Grammar School is an OFSTED ‘Outstanding’ forward-looking selective Church of England school where academic standards are very high, rivalling the best schools in the country; our naturally able and inquisitive pupils are a delight to teach. The school prioritises the wellbeing, dignity and morale of its staff and pupils, actively investing in CPD as we very much feel that people make our environment.
We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, enthusiastic and inspirational graduate to join us as a full time Teacher of English (maternity cover for one year), with the opportunity to teach up to the highest academic levels.
