Concord College is England’s premier co-educational boarding school set in the heart of the Shropshire countryside with 600 students aged 13-19. Historic buildings sit alongside our state-of-the-art facilities which include areas providing extra-curricular activities, sport and recreation. We are truly international with upwards of 40 nationalities represented, which creates a wonderfully diverse community.
Academic achievement at Concord College is exceptional. In 2019, students achieved 85% 7-9 (A*/A) at GCSE and 84% A*/A at A level. We are also delighted that over 120 students have been offered places at Oxford and Cambridge over the last six years.
We wish to appoint a well-qualified, enthusiastic and motivated Head of Economics to lead a team of subject specialists from September 2020.
The successful candidate will have a high quality degree in Economics and must be capable of teaching Economics expertly and confidently to both GCSE and A level. A willingness to contribute to the broader life of the College is expected.
We offer a generous remuneration package which includes a salary significantly above main scale, a personal tutor allowance, duty payments, free meals, Teachers’ Pensions and private health insurance.
The closing date for applications is midday Friday 31 January 2020. Interviews will be held week commencing Monday 24 February 2020.
Concord College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Child Protection Screening is undertaken which includes checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.
