This is an excellent opportunity to join St Sampson's High School, to be part of an exciting period of change in secondary education and enjoy an exceptional future on a beautiful island.

About you

We are seeking an enthusiastic, dynamic and well-qualified specialist graduate teacher with the vision to deliver high standards of teaching and learning throughout Key Stages 3 and 4 in Maths. 

We are looking for someone who is passionate about raising learners’ individual achievements with innovative ideas to build on existing good practice.

About the Education Service

The three island 11-16 High Schools, the Guernsey Grammar School & Sixth Form Centre (11-18), and St Anne’s School in Alderney work in a federated model of partnership working led by the Director of Education.

The drivers in secondary phase education for this collaborative approach are quality of educational experience and outcomes, equality of opportunity and access, and efficient and effective use of resources.

Employed by the States of Guernsey and based at St Sampson's High School, you will be required to maximise opportunities for collaborative working, teaching and learning across Key Stages and shared professional development across schools. There is an expectation that you will engage in cross-school initiatives which may require working on more than one site to meet the needs of the Education Service.


Guernsey is a remarkable place in which to work. We can offer you not only a challenging and rewarding career as part of a well-resourced department which has a suite of specialist rooms, but a healthy work-life balance and outdoor pursuits in abundance.

  • Benefit from the stunning scenery and enviable quality of life;
  • Work in a well-resourced school with favourable PTRs;
  • Be part of a leading development of Maths in education and be allocated a personal laptop;
  • Receive a generous relocation package to the island, including rent allowance;
