A very warm welcome to St. Christopher’s, and thank you for taking the time to view our website. In doing so you have already indicated that you have one of the qualities for which we are looking – a thoroughness of approach!
St. Christopher’s International Primary School is a non-denominational, not-for-profit making establishment, and the school will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in the Academic Year 2013/2014. We are very proud of both our history and our achievements and recognise that one of our greatest strengths has always been the quality and professionalism of our staff. Consequently, our recruitment process is very thorough as we feel that maintaining the balance and ethos of our school deserves our utmost consideration.
We may have, as a result of teaching contracts coming to a natural end July/August 2014, be looking into staffing requirements for the forthcoming Academic Year 2014/15. As such, we would like to invite applications from suitably qualified candidates.
The school will only accept qualified teaching applicants with a minimum of three to four years teaching experience (teaching and learning environment) and candidates should be excellent classroom practitioners. A flexible, child-centred approach to education is one of the hallmarks of our school, so interested candidates will be asked to demonstrate their willingness and ability to adopt this approach.
In addition, candidates should be aware that at St Christopher's, the role of the class teacher extends far beyond the confines of the classrooms, or indeed the school itself, and that expectations concerning commitment and performance are high. In return, the school offers a family-style atmosphere and warmth of welcome that we feel is unparalleled, as well as the opportunity for successful candidates to continue their professional development in a supportive and unique environment.
Please take this opportunity (if you haven’t already done so) to look carefully through the rest of the website.
Interested applicants should send a current curriculum vitae, together with a letter of application via email to - email@example.com
Please note that whilst we will make every effort to acknowledge email applications we are unable to do so for mailed applications. Shortlisted candidates, however, will be notified by email and/or telephone.
As part of our process in selecting suitable teachers, the Principal may visit applicants in their current school where possible, and observe them teach.
We suggest you look at all the links in our website … by doing this, you will certainly get to know us and the kind of school we are! As stated in our advert we have a lot to offer the right candidate and information on job opportunities for various teaching positions are displayed in detail in this section.
