Job Details

Required for January 2021

This is an exceptional opportunity for a first-rate Classicist to join an outstanding, ambitious and forward-looking Classics Department within one of the UK's leading girls' schools where enquiry into the ancient world and its languages is held in high esteem.

You will teach GCSE Latin, A Level Latin, A Level Classical Civilisation, and Key Stage 3 Latin and assist the Head of Classics with preparing students for university applications. You will also promote and deliver a lively co-curricular programme.

If you are a well-qualified graduate with qualified teacher status (or working towards qualified teacher status) or the equivalent, we would be delighted to hear from you. The ability to deliver Classical Greek would be an advantage but is not essential.

Classics is a popular subject at Streatham & Clapham High School. Pupils participate in a number of Classics trips and competitions throughout the year. Lower School pupils attend a weekly Classics club at lunch times, and a busy schedule of theatre trips and lectures is provided for all years.
