My NQT experience at King Edward’s has been overwhelmingly positive. The staff within my department, as well as in the wider school have been really supportive and I have gained advice from many different staff. It seems there is a nice blend of experienced staff who can help you out, but also some young staff who have recently had to adapt to the way the school works and what the students are like.
The best aspect of the school for me this year has been the behaviour and attitude of the students. They really are a joy to teach and I have always felt relaxed about trying new T+L strategies. Furthermore, the trip opportunities really are a real perk of the job for me. I appreciate they aren’t for everybody but I have really enjoyed that opportunity. Sam Brennan, History NQT

We are seeking an enthusiastic and talented Linguist who is either completing their PGCE or NQT year. The MFL Department here at King Edward’s is very successful and all students take one or two languages at GCSE from a choice of French or Spanish. Ideally the department requires a teacher who can offer French and Spanish to GCSE and A level, however, there is enough expertise within the department to adapt to those who can offer a different combination. In addition to this the department also offers various cultural enrichment activities and contributes to the Schools International Schools programme and is keen to speak to candidates able to offer Mandarin or Russian to support our broader language enrichment program.

In addition we have one or two sets each year who will take the Double Science route. The Science Department has a consistent track record of preparing students for University and the Science department as a whole has a strong regional reputation of excellence for preparing students for entry to Medicine and Veterinary courses. The school works closely with the OGDEN Trust to promote physics and science teaching across a cluster of schools and contributions to this area of the life of the department are always valued.
Although selective and academic in our focus the School’s ethos is centred on the development of the whole child. We are exceptionally fortunate that our committed staff give of their time generously in numerous different ways to share or pursue a passion with our pupils. We have a flourishing debating society; creative writing groups; music; drama and sport are all strong. We are also unusual for a state school in having a large and active CCF who also help to run our Duke of Edinburgh programme. The desire to share a passion or simply get involved in the extra-curricular life of the school will be crucial.
