September 2018 Start - One Year Fixed Term
Inner London Teachers’ Pay Scale
Lady Margaret School is a comprehensive Church of England school for girls aged 11-18. It is situated on Parsons Green in West London, and serves a diverse local community. It was founded in 1917 and became an Academy in September 2012. The school is extremely successful and over-subscribed. Staff, students and parents work together to develop each individual student within a culture of high expectations and respect. We aim to empower students to achieve high aspirations for themselves within a culture of hard work and respect for everybody.
Our exam results reflect the hard work of our staff and students. In 2017, 89% of our girls attained GCSE English and Mathematics at grades 9-4 plus 3 or more other grades A*-C. At A Level, our results are consistently outstanding, with high numbers of girls progressing to a wide range of Higher Education courses. In 2017 70% of grades were A*-B. Students at LMS have a very good record of securing offers from top universities.
Now in our centenary year, we look forward to building on this success. We are looking for a talented and enthusiastic professional to join our English Department in September 2018 for a fixed term period of one year (maternity cover). The successful candidate will teach English across the full age and ability range. This position is suitable for either an NQT or someone with more experience. Candidates with suitable skills and experience may have the opportunity to apply for a TLR to lead Key Stage 3 English. As a member of our staff community you will have the chance to work with a strong staff team to build on the current successes of the school as we move forward into the next stage of our development.
