The King's School is a leading independent co-educational boarding school, situated in the heart of the historic cathedral city of Canterbury in Kent.  

We seek to appoint a highly qualified and motivated person to teach Geography throughout the School. The Geography Department at King’s comprises six full-time members of staff, in a self-contained building in the centre of the school. 

You will be expected to teach at every level – from Shells (Year 9) to university entrance (including Oxbridge). The Department is academic, energetic, colourful and multi-talented. It has a good balance of youth and age, male and female, and a wide range of expertise beyond the subject, including Sport, Information Technology, History of Art, Classics, and Geology. Apart from working hard to achieve outstanding examination results, they contribute widely to school life – for example, running sports teams, organising King’s Week, the annual summer Arts festival, and running the sixth form JCR (pub). All look after tutees and fulfil weekly house duties.

The department is very well-resourced with all classrooms having Promethean interactive whiteboards, projectors, and DVD players in each room, as well as a set of laptop computers that can be booked per lesson. Many resources are online, and there is also a designated resources room that stores hard copies as well as fieldwork equipment. 

Applications should be submitted online through the King’s School website (www.kings-school.co.uk – Staff Vacancies), and should include a personal statement for the Headmaster and a CV. If you have any difficulties accessing the internet please contact the School Office: reception@kings-school.co.uk or call 01227 595501.
