The London Oratory School invites you to apply for the maternity cover fixed term post of Teacher of History (with Politics). Trad, but quirky, The London Oratory is amongst the city’s most prestigious Catholic schools. We educate boys from 7 to 18, with girls in the Sixth form, in a broad, liberal arts curriculum – but that’s not all, so do please visit our website for a fuller flavour: www.london-oratory.org

The School enjoys a highly competitive salary scale to recognise and reward the very committed body of staff that make up its Common Room.

Our invitation:

We are recruiting a suitably qualified and dedicated History with Politics teacher, to join our supportive History and Politics Department. The successful candidate will benefit from, and be able to contribute to, a well-ordered, warm-hearted and highly disciplined school. The School puts a premium on a virtue based, character development curriculum in the Catholic, Oratorian tradition, underpinning and enriching both knowledge rich and skills-based approaches to pedagogy; as such, all teaching staff are expected to make a contribution to the rich intellectual, spiritual, pastoral and co-curricular life of the school, in whatever way their talents suggest. This is a fixed term, maternity contract, from September 2024 until December 2024.

Your gifts:

We invite applicants who are experienced teachers looking to thrive in our unique setting. Whatever your background, you will have a strong degree of expertise in your chosen subject, be empathetic, keen to share your enthusiasm for the subject and for teaching. We will give you all the support you need to develop your potential as a teacher.  The successful candidate will be prepared to support the co-curricular life of the school and in our wider educational programmes such as EPQ.

Our School:

In addition to first class, tasteful facilities (including on-site parking, a gym and swimming pool) and a highly competitive salary package, here are five reasons as to why you might consider working with us:

1. Our vision: A compelling vision of what a distinctively Catholic education should look like, open to the world and fitting pupils to move through it with panache and confidence;

2. Our pupils: Well-disciplined, switched on, cosmopolitan – and quirky – supported in their growth by skilled staff and a tightly structured pastoral system;

3. Our staff: An intellectually lively and collegial Common Room culture, that supports you in your growth as a subject and pedagogical expert;

4. Our priority: A highly supportive and collegial atmosphere at all levels that values and recognises the great work that teachers do, and the challenges and sacrifices they make to do it. In addition to daily freshly brewed coffee, we also offer full access to staff medical and counselling services, should these be required;

5. Your future: An innovative staff development programme that looks to support you in growing in your vocation, in a school that is keen to think through the implications of cutting edge pedagogical research and development, within a rich philosophical and spiritual heritage.

Your call:

Applications will be considered as they are submitted, and they School reserves the right to interview suitable applicants before the deadline.
