Teaching within independent schools

Why consider teaching in an independent school?

The first difference between independent and state maintained schools is that the funding for the school comes from fee-paying parents and donors rather than the government. Because they don’t rely on state subsidies, independent schools have more flexibility when it comes to how and what they teach, and who they can hire to do so.


For teachers, there are pros and cons to teaching in independent schools. Having a different set of regulatory guidelines for fee-paying schools means there is more variety when it comes to pay, benefits and working environment. Each independent school is also likely to have its own traditions and ethos, often steeped in long histories.
