Harrow Shanghai is a high-performing and market-leading international British curriculum school located in one of the most dynamic and exciting 21st century cities in the world.

The fourth school in the prestigious Harrow family of highly renowned schools in the Asia region, Harrow Shanghai provides an independent education from Early Years (18 month entry) to Upper Sixth within a high specification, modern and purpose-built campus just 35 minutes from the epicenter of the diverse, historically-rich and cosmopolitan metropolis of Shanghai.

The School combines the enduring core elements of the educational philosophy, practice and traditions of Harrow School in London, alongside the very modern international mindedness of a diverse and ambitious pupil body.

Officially opened by HRH Prince Edward, the School was launched in September 2016 and its roll is growing annually throughout all phases: Early Years, Pre-prep, Prep and Senior Schools. The pupils, who are simply a delight to teach, follow the English National Curriculum and go on to study IGCSEs and A Levels. Upper Sixth leavers progress onto many of the most competitive universities across the globe, including Oxbridge.

The science subjects are especially popular throughout the phases and all students in the Senior School study the three sciences separately to IGCSE level, with Physics also proving a popular subject at A Level. Applicants who can demonstrate a strong proven track record of bringing about outstanding academic success at both GCSE and A Level will be well-placed.

Harrow is, however, about much more than simply outstanding academic results and our pupils excel in a multitude of fields including music, drama, sport and the arts, as well as involving themselves in service to the local community.

The School is seeking a well-qualified, highly capable and ambitious Teacher of Physics, to commence in post in August 2021.

It is Harrow's intention that the appointed candidate will be well-supported and mentored for promotion in time, and opportunities for middle leadership within the academic and pastoral spheres of School life will become available.

The successful applicant can expect a generous salary, a performance-related bonus, accommodation, medical and flight benefits, and an unusual 100% tuition fees remission for up to two dependents (50% for any further children thereafter).

Moreover, working within the highly prestigious Harrow Group of schools, which works very closely with Harrow London and is expanding rapidly, will provide an ideal opportunity for career development and promotion, not least through the soon to be launched Harrow Academy for Professional Learning and partnerships with the likes of the Royal Chartered College of Teaching.

Candidates should note that in terms of the ongoing global pandemic, Shanghai is presently one of the safest cities on the planet with no locally transmitted cases evident for many months. Thankfully, Shanghai daily life, in the very widest sense, is very normal with no social restrictions in place and the Harrow Shanghai staff are enjoying the many freedoms this affords them.
