Overseas Teachers

We welcome teachers from overseas

We are eager to appoint exceptional individuals from overseas who wish to further develop their career in full-time education and make a significant contribution to the learning, and lives of our students. We have proven track record of working with and developing teachers trained in Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Canada and Ireland. A number of our current staff joined us from overseas with many progressing to take up positions of responsibility. As part of a high performing multi academy trust, we have teamed up with our strategic partner Teach Southeast to assist with the seamless integration of our overseas staff. We offer continued and comprehensive support for colleagues converting to the English system. We are not an agency (there are no recruitment fees), just a high performing school that wants to hire the best teachers.

What we can offer you

We can offer you the chance to work in a school which has a history of developing young, dynamic and enthusiastic teachers. We have integrated many overseas trained teachers and enabled them to gain rapid promotion. We will make a commitment to induct and train you thoroughly prior to taking up your new position; we feel this ensures you are fully acclimatised to our system. We will ensure full participation in our newly qualified teacher programme so that you receive your qualified teacher status after three terms. You will also be assigned an experienced one to one subject mentor who will support your development and help you with planning, preparation and administration; you will also be working in a department that shares its lesson planning and resources. Our school boasts superb electronic and physical resources.

More about us

We are a small, inclusive and dynamic mixed comprehensive school meeting the needs of children of all abilities from 11-16 years, every day we welcome over 700 students through our gates. We are situated in Surrey, minutes away from Heathrow airport, the M25 (London orbital ring road), the M3 and 10 minute walk to the train station where London is only 25 minutes away.  Many of our young overseas staff benefit from a vibrant social scene and choose to live in metropolitan areas of London such as Clapham, Wimbledon and Kingston upon Thames.  Some also choose to live in the quieter and more rural areas of Surrey.

Our OFSTED grading is good and cites the Headteacher’s leadership as ‘outstanding’.  Our staff always cite the school and its teachers to be friendly and hugely supportive.  Our ideal candidates are energetic, ambitious (for themselves and their students), resilient and enthusiastic.
