Weydon School is a large, ambitious and outstanding school in an unspoilt area of Surrey within easy reach of London. The Times has recently rated Weydon School 4th across the UK for 11-16 schools, and achievements in the English faculty are exceptional.

It has been said that we have grammar school outcomes and independent sector facilities, and our ongoing and recent successes clearly demonstrate this. In September 2016, the curriculum area moved into “The Globe”, a new multi-million pound building complex, with every classroom in close proximity to the Learning Resource Centre.

Students are respectful and responsive, and are proud to uphold the strong values of the school. Colleagues and the leadership team are highly supportive and if you join us, you will benefit from our extensive CPD programme organised in conjunction with our teaching school.

This is a great opportunity to develop your career at this highly successful and well-respected school. We welcome applications from experienced teachers and those who are at the early stages of their career.
