Dear Candidate,

Thank you for your interest in joining our teaching team at The Island Free School.  

The Island Free School is an extremely successful and popular secondary school based in Ventnor on the Isle of Wight. Our school is highly academic and all pupils follow the English Baccalaureate, with GCSE programmes of study in all subject areas.  The school, which was created by parents and teachers, opened to year 7 pupils in 2014 and we are now at capacity with 625 pupils across 5 year groups. Our model has proved very popular with Island families and we continue to be over-subscribed.

Since opening, we have built a highly effective team of teachers and support staff with a shared passion to create an extraordinary school for Island families. We have been rated Good with Outstanding personal development, behaviour and welfare by Ofsted in our first inspection in June 2017, and we encourage you to read our Ofsted report.

Our school has a specialism in music and all pupils are given free music tuition and instruments in key stage 3. At the end of each day all pupils and staff engage in a wide range of creative and sporting activities as part of our enrichment programme. 

As our staffing develops, we seek to appoint a colleague to join our Modern Foreign Languages team (French/Spanish). The successful candidate can expect high quality professional development, potential for career advancement, and the opportunity to enjoy coming to work each day. This is a full-time position, and would suit both newly qualified teachers and more experienced practitioners. 

To apply, please use the online form – we look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your interest in our school.

Kind regards,


Steph Boyd
