For nearly five centuries, Christ’s Hospital has pioneered social mobility and challenged social inequality to provide an unrivalled start in life for disadvantaged children. As economic and social inequality continue to grow in the UK, Christ’s Hospital’s mission is as relevant today as it was in 1552.  The School is unique. We are strikingly unlike any other independent school in the UK, with a richly diverse pupil body, in terms of ethnicity and socio-economic background.  More than 75% of our pupils are on some form of financial support, with a considerable number receiving full bursaries.

We are currently conducting a search for a well-qualified and enthusiastic Teacher of Design and Technology from September 2023. This is an exciting prospect for the right person to be part of a unique educational environment.

The successful applicant will be a well-qualified and capable graduate with an enthusiasm for the teaching of Design and Technology in a large co-educational boarding school.  Innovation, flair, and vision are highly valued, as will the ability to inspire pupils both in and out of the classroom.

Applicants should evidence in the personal statement how they how the meet the requirements of the role and person specification. Salary is commensurate with experience and paid in accordance with the Christs’ Hospital Teachers’ Salary scale up to £43,701 per annum.  Full participation in the broader life of this busy boarding community is essential and accommodation on site can be provided.
