Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Commensurate with experience

This is a rare and exciting opportunity to work as part of a committed and motivated team of staff, with hardworking and enthusiastic children in an outstanding setting.

Sauveterre is a busy, happy full-boarding school for 10-13 year-olds, based in the South-west of France near Toulouse. 

We are looking to appoint a teacher of Maths to fill a crucial role in this unique school. Alongside the linguistic and cultural experience that children gain at Sauveterre, we also seek to ensure that they continue to receive first-rate preparation for forthcoming Common Entrance and Scholarship exams. Candidates must, therefore, be capable of bringing an academically rigorous and yet innovative approach to lessons. 

The successful applicant will have the ability to inspire young learners, allowing them to grow in confidence and reach their academic ceiling. In addition to tracking and reporting on pupils’ progress, they will play an active role in developing resources within the curriculum.

The ideal candidate will be prepared to participate fully in the sporting, pastoral and extra-curricular life of a busy boarding school and have interests outside of the classroom that they are keen to share with the children.

The position would suit both teachers that are new to the profession, as well as those with greater experience.


This job description gives a basic outline of the role and does not claim to be comprehensive. All members of staff are expected to play a full role in the life of the School as may be reasonably required of their position. Any role at the school can develop over time as appropriate. This job description is not contractual and therefore may be subject to change.

Sauveterre is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of every child at the school and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Sauveterre reserves the right to appoint at any stage during the application process.
