Scarborough College, an award winning school ranked in the Top 3 UK Small Independent Schools in 2017, is seeking a dynamic, inspiring and committed Teacher of English within its Senior School from September.
The most suitable candidates will be subject specialists with a real passion for English and for developing pupils' skills in reading, writing, speaking and drama. Within an already high-achieving department, the post-holder will enjoy exposure to the full range of year groups within the Year 7 to Year 13 range, including GCSE (Language and Literature) and the opportunity to teach within the stimulating IB Diploma English Language and English Literature courses within Years 12 and 13. Previous experience of the IB is not a prerequisite. Should the successful candidate have an interest, there will be the opportunity to teach some Drama within Key Stage 3.
Scarborough College is a delightful and rewarding school in which to work with motivated children, supportive parents and colleagues, superb facilities and a glorious location just five minutes from the beach. All pupils within the Senior School study English throughout their time at the College, given that English is compulsory within our IB programme. Annually, a very high percentage of departing students take up places at the UK's leading Russell Group universities.
With a £3 million refurbishment and extension of its boarding facilities underway and a £2 million investment into new sports facilities on the horizon, the post-holder will be joining the College at one of the most exciting times in its history.
The North Yorkshire area with its coastline, national parks and market towns is a beautiful location in which to live and work; the quality of life is high and the cost of living low.
The appointed candidate will enjoy a competitive salary with many further benefits which include a 66% remission on tuition fees for dependents across both the Prep and Senior Schools. A residential position with accommodation provided may be available to a candidate who has an interest in a role within our boarding community.
The closing date for applications is Thursday 22 March at 4pm and interviews will be held during the week beginning 26 March.
