UNITED KINGDOM INDEPENDENT SCHOOL OF THE YEAR 2018-19
(1,100 pupils, aged 11-18)
Brighton College is one of England’s leading independent schools, located at the heart of the country’s most vibrant city.
We are seeking to appoint an individual who fosters a passion for learning and who can demonstrate an ability and genuine desire to develop pupils to their fullest potential.
Many teachers joining the College have a proven track record of effective teaching, having obtained excellent public examination results with previous classes. However, we are also equally happy to appoint candidates who are currently on a PGCE, or candidates have no formal teaching qualification whatsoever.
More importantly, in the application process, we will look for candidates who demonstrate the ability to thrive within an environment that staff describe as both invigorating and refreshing. The ability to inspire children, and the willingness to support the ambition, values and breadth of College life, will be of central importance. Successful candidates will be self-reliant, resilient and adaptable.
Beyond this, candidates should have a strong academic record, including a good degree in a relevant subject. Those without teaching experience must be able to demonstrate a genuine interest in young people and teaching. We will look for evidence of the capacity to contribute to the broader life of the College, and for evidence of passion and enthusiasm for the relevant subject.
Deadline for applications: Midday on Monday 28 January 2019
Brighton College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children; the successful applicant will be subject to an enhanced disclosure through the DBS.
