Teacher of History and Geography

St George's SchoolAscot, Berkshire

Required for September 2021 (if available) or January 2022.

St George’s is an independent boarding and day school with approximately 270 pupils aged from 11-18 years about 45% of whom are boarders (both full and tailored) and with a Sixth Form of approximately 80 pupils. The school operates as an Educational Trust administered by a Board of Governors, is a member of the Girls’ Schools Association (GSA), Boarding Schools Association (BSA), and is ISC accredited.

We are a welcoming school with a warm sense of community and visitors often comment on the perceptible supportive and cheerful atmosphere. We believe that a happy and successful school is one where all pupils have the opportunities to develop their strengths. The richness of opportunities within and outside the classroom are fundamental elements of the St George’s experience and this allows the girls to foster the confidence, independence and academic curiosity that lead to success. Our academic results are impressive, with the ‘value-added’ in public examinations a real strength. We understand how girls learn effectively and we regularly add at least one grade higher at GCSE and A Level than baseline testing would suggest.

Over the past two years at GCSE, St George’s has been placed in the top 5 to 10% of schools nationally for value added.

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and dynamic Teacher to provide inspirational teaching of History and Geography in the curriculum and as part of the co-curricular provision.

The successful candidate should be passionate about their subjects, forward thinking and show a real desire to motivate pupils of all abilities

Letters of application should be addressed to Mrs Liz Hewer, Headmistress, be no more than two sides of A4, and should be emailed to together with the completed application form and confidential cover sheet (available from the School's website), no later than 9 am Monday 24 May.

First round interviews will be held online via Google Meet on Tuesday 25 May, followed by final round interviews in School later that week. 

The School reserves the right to interview suitable candidates before that date, if deemed necessary.
