TEACHER OF ECONOMICS (FULL-TIME)
Magdalen College School, founded in 1480, is one of the country’s leading independent day schools.
We are seeking to appoint a full-time Teacher of Economics to join our thriving Economics department from September 2020. Economics has been taught at Magdalen College School since 2010 and has since then expanded significantly and remains a highly popular and successful subject.
Economics has been taught at Magdalen College School since September 2010 and has, since then, expanded significantly. It has been established as a popular and highly successful subject within the Sixth Form curriculum.
Economics teaching takes place in well-resourced, modern and attractive classrooms in the Colin Sanders building and there is a separate departmental office. The department follows the Edexcel Economics A specification, with pupils taking all external exams at the end of the Upper Sixth.
The department achieves outstanding results in public examinations. Last year the department achieved 20% A* at A Level and 77% A*-A. Many MCS Economics pupils are successful in gaining places to read Economics at Oxbridge, LSE, Warwick and other Russell Group universities. Underpinning this interest is an enduring strength in Maths: over 40% of this year’s Lower Sixth has chosen to study Further Mathematics, and a further 33% have chosen Single Maths. Furthermore, a significant number of the Sixth Form choose an Economics related subject for their Waynflete Studies project – the School’s unique extended project taught in conjunction with members of the University.
The successful candidate will be required to teach Economics to A Level and Oxbridge classes and will have the energy, enthusiasm, experience and expertise to contribute significantly to this successful department.
