The successful candidate will have an outstanding record of teaching across the secondary age range, from Year 7 to GCE A Level, IB Diploma or equivalent level in a similar international curriculum.

A position of responsibility may be available to a suitably qualified person. 

Merchiston Castle International School

MCIS will offer an innovative British independent school curriculum for international students aged 6 – 18, starting in Key Stage 1 and culminating in IGCSE and GCE A Level. The campus, inspired by the ethos of Merchiston Castle, Edinburgh, is designed to create the kind of innovative learning spaces in which an effective 21st century education can take place.

How to apply

Applicants should apply on line through the TES careers portal. Please provide the names and full contact details of three referees, one of whom should represent your current employer. 

Short-listed candidates must be able to provide a recent DBS/PVG check, police clearance certificate or similar record of non-criminality demonstrating that there is no reason why they cannot work with children. 

The application should be submitted no later than Tuesday November 28th.
