We have a vacancy for a full-time teacher of English with effect from September 2022 for up to two terms.   This post offers the opportunity to teach English to IGCSE and A Level.  As Christ’s Hospital is an independent, charitable school, a PGCE is not necessary for teaching and, as such, we would consider appropriately well-qualified graduates and unqualified teachers who are interested in the profession.  The successful applicant will be suitably qualified and capable with an enthusiasm for the teaching of English in a large co-educational boarding school.  Innovation, flair and vision are highly valued, as is the ability to inspire pupils both in and out of the classroom.

Applicants should evidence in the personal statement how they how they 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 which currently ranges from £26,874 – £41,620 per annum.  Full participation in the broader life of this busy boarding community is essential and accommodation on site is available.
