You could be an experienced Teacher of Spanish - or perhaps you’re newly qualified. What really matters it that you’re an inspirational professional with a genuine passion for your subject. You enjoy working with students of all abilities as you support every one of them to achieve outstanding results. 

Now enjoy all the support you need to reach your professional goals as part of the friendly and welcoming team here at Woldingham School. Close to London yet in an outstandingly beautiful rural setting, Woldingham is a happy and successful Catholic boarding and day school for girls aged 11 to 18.

You’ll be joining a successful and forward-thinking team that supports girls to achieve GCSE and A Level grades that are well above national averages. Many of our teaching materials have been designed and tailor made by the department itself - and extensive use is made of interactive whiteboards. Our resources are constantly reviewed and updated to ensure that we give our girls the best possible opportunity of developing their language skills and knowledge of Spanish.

To join us, you will need to be an excellent teamworker who can support the school’s Catholic ethos and make a real contribution to our enrichment provision. Experience of teaching Spanish at KS4 and 5 would be an advantage too.

This is a truly unique school with an equally unique culture and philosophy. Building on a proud heritage that stretches back 175 years, we’re now driving an exciting future that’s underpinned by fresh ideas, an innovative spirit and state-of-the-art facilities – all alive with the creative energy of over 500 young minds. Our goal is to develop confident and compassionate young women who are curious, ambitious and ready to take on the challenges of today’s world.
