Religious Studies Teacher
Religious Studies Teacher - Independent Prep School
Location: Hampstead, North London
Start Date: September 2017
Timetable: Full Time
Contract: 12 months
Our client, an independent boy's preparatory school in West London, is looking for a suitably qualified and experienced teacher of Religious Studies to join their successful and thriving department.
Our client is an established prep school with an excellent reputation across London thanks to its excellent teaching, broad curriculum and high pupil aspirations. The prep school has around 400 boys on roll ages 4 to 13 and feeds to some of the best selective senior schools in London. The ability of the pupils is mixed on entry but achievement is high throughout the school and pupils well exceed the national average.
There is currently a vacancy for a religious studies teacher to join the school on a contract lasting 12 months starting from September. There is a strong possibility that this contract will be made permanent for the right candidate. The role requires teaching religious studies throughout the upper school which includes KS2 and KS3 level teaching. The teaching timetable will be full school hours and it is expected that the successful candidate will fully commit to the school's broad extracurricular programme as well. Class sizes are kept small and the pupils are engaged and well behaved.
The successful candidate will be a graduate of the Humanities and will have experience teaching religious studies at this level. They will be a strong communicator and an excellently presented teacher setting a good example for the pupils in the school. Someone with experience of teaching towards prep school exams would be valued however this isn't strictly necessary and a dynamic and versatile teacher with transferable skills would be equally encouraged to apply.
The salary and package will be dependent on experience and on the school's own scale which is well above the maintained sector.
If you do have the relevant requirements and would like to be considered for this opportunity please send through your CV, or call Phil at Connaught for more information.
