Musselburgh Grammar School serves the town of Musselburgh and the surrounding villages of Wallyford and Whitecraig. The community is strong in Musselburgh and there is loyalty attached to the local Grammar School. We have approximately 1,100 pupils ranging in age from 12 to 18 and over 100 staff in total. The vision of the school is ‘to become one of the best schools in Scotland.’ This has resonated with all stakeholders and is consistent with the school motto of ‘Striving for Excellence – Caring for All.’ Our pupil centred approach and ambition for young people is also reflected in our school values. Honesty, Determination and Respect were the choices of our school in June 2015. Continuing to raise attainment is our key objective along with ensuring that our youngsters develop transferable skills for the future. We have recorded our best ever exam results at all levels in 2015, 2016 and 2017. If you share these high expectations for young people, we would encourage you to apply for this post.
The English department at Musselburgh Grammar School is dynamic and successful. As a school we are keen to recruit a new member of the team in order to continue improving on already outstanding SQA results. in addition, the department provides a variety of exciting opportunities to further the curriculum in English and beyond via increased provision of Drama and Media.
