Thornton College is a thriving independent day and boarding school for girls aged 4 – 18 with a co-educational nursery attached for children aged 2 ½ - 4 years. The school has grown significantly over the past decade and there have been some exciting new developments including a new Prep School building, a performing arts suite and an award winning science teaching block. A new Sixth Form opened this September. Due to further expansion of student numbers throughout the school, and the popularity of the subject, we would like to appoint an additional teacher of psychology from september 2017.
The successful candidate will be a well-qualified graduate, passionate about the teaching of Psychology and ready to participate fully in the life of the school. This is a full time position if the candidate is able to offer an additional subject, ideally Geography or Sociology, although other subjects will be considered. A part-time post will be available if candidates are solely able to teach Psychology. S/he will be expected to teach throughout the school, including A level. Applications from NQTs would be welcome.
If you enjoy teaching, are able to enthuse students and are committed to enabling them to achieve high standards, then we look forward to hearing from you. Newly Qualified Teachers will work on a reduced timetable and will be supported through a mentoring programme. Opportunities to meet with colleagues in other schools will be arranged.
Closing date for applications: Tuesday 10th January 2017
Interview date: Friday 20th January 2017
