He or she will be required to teach both their subject specialism and lower-school General Science, and the ability to teach another science up to MYP level would be an advantage. We expect the successful candidate to be someone who has experience of teaching up to IB/university entrance level and who will participate in the wider life of the school. Experience of teaching in an IB school would be helpful but not essential.

Teacher of English Language and Literature

We are looking for an experienced teacher to join our English Language and Literature Curriculum Area. The Language and Literature team has teaching specialists in English, French, Mandarin and Portuguese – the successful candidate will, therefore, collaborate with this diverse team. We have excellent results in this area, and in English we offer both English Literature and English Language and Literature in the IB Diploma. We are also participating in the MYP e-assessments, and experience of teaching IB MYP and DP English, while not essential, would be an advantage.

Junior School Classroom Teachers
We are seeking experienced and highly motivated junior school teachers. The junior school has classes from nursery (age 3) through to grade 5 (UK Year 6). We follow the IB’s PYP programme throughout, with additional focus on numeracy and literacy. Classes do not normally exceed 20 students, and the teachers are supported by a dedicated teaching assistant, with classes up to and including grade 1 having assistants for each class. Students also have specialist teachers for music, ICT, art, PE, library and Portuguese, so classroom teachers have at least 25% non-contact time to allow for high quality preparation and collaboration.

 

EAL Teacher

We are looking for a qualified teacher, flexible and able to teach students with a diverse range of language needs and different age groups. The position will require in-class and withdrawal support as well as developing curriculum that meets the needs of students.
