TEACHER OF ENGLISH

Required to start in September 2019


We are a busy, vibrant and happy school – academically successful but driven to achieve much more. We believe that education must maintain a balance between intellect and character. An outstanding education is not either/or. It is both. We also believe that qualifications are what girls get; they do not define who girls are and will play only a part in shaping who they become. 

At the Folkestone School for Girls, girls do not complete an excessive amount of qualifications. This allows them not only time to focus efforts on achieving the very best grades within these, but also time to participate in co-curricular activities and interests, both at school and at home. 

There is time to spend with friends and family and time, too, to just be a child. 

A justifiable balance between intellect and character.


We seek to appoint an outstanding classroom practitioner for September 2019 to join our vibrant and successful English team


We can offer a thriving and hugely successful department – consistently amongst the very best in the country (top 10th percentile for P8), a dedicated & stable team of staff and girls who are intelligent, curious and driven succeed. 


You will need great people skills, resilience and enthusiasm and a capacity for sustained hard work. Perhaps most importantly, you will be positive, optimistic and have a can-do attitude to anything that will benefit FSG Girls.


You must be a qualified English teacher who is passionate about teaching, about books & Literature and about English with a track record of examination success at both GCSE and Advanced Level. NQT’s are also welcome to apply.
