Teacher of English

Permanent and full time

For 1 September 2021

The Godolphin and Latymer School is one of the country’s leading independent day schools for girls, located on a six acre site in Hammersmith, London.  The School’s facilities are excellent, making it an exciting place to learn and work.  The students receive unrivalled academic and pastoral support and outstanding examination results are achieved.

We currently seek to appoint a passionate and well-qualified Teacher of English to teach across the school on a full time basis from 1 September 2021.

Taught by a highly qualified and experienced department of eleven, English is a thriving subject at the school.  The students demonstrate a genuine enthusiasm for the subject and there is a large take up for it in the Sixth Form.

The successful candidate will be an inspirational teacher who encourages a deep and scholarly engagement with the subject whilst focusing on excellent levels of achievement for pupils of all ages.  The ability to teach English Literature to A Level is essential.  There might be the opportunity to teach English Language to A Level if that is of interest.  Candidates should possess the subject knowledge and skills to teach up to Higher Level IB English; however, prior experience of teaching the IB is not essential.  Members of the department are expected to be committed to the development of English at Godolphin and Latymer, including engaging with the whole school enthusiasm for evidence-informed teaching and learning.  

There is a very active extra-curricular offering within the department, to which all members of the department contribute.  All staff are expected to support the wider school extra-curricular programme in some way.

The salary will be commensurate with the post and will depend upon qualifications and experience.

Accommodation may be available for new staff in a local six-unit property.
