Full Time

Do you have a passion for life and learning? If so, our inspirational teaching team at JAGS is looking for a colleague to join the Economics department. Your dynamic and creative approach will help encourage and champion today’s young economists across Years 7 to 13 in this, one of the UK’s leading independent schools.

With its distinctive heritage as the oldest independent girls’ school in London, James Allen’s Girls’ School, JAGS, provides a forward-thinking and contemporary education for over 1100 girls aged 4 to 18. Located in the London borough of Southwark, JAGS has a diverse school community and is committed to inclusive recruitment and inclusion in the workplace.

Our school aims, both in and out of the classroom, are clear:

• To celebrate our diverse and inclusive community

• To champion social awareness and sustainability

• To empower courage, creativity and compassion in each student

• To inspire aspirational and authentic lifelong learners and leaders

• To nurture respectful, resilient and kind individuals

If this matches your educational vision, then this is the perfect time to join the Economics department, which consists of our team of 2 teachers. Economics is one of the many strengths of the school and one of our most popular A Level choices, with a significant number of students applying for Economics degrees.

Teamwork plays an important role within the Department: the staff love to enhance the experience of the students by sharing good practice, resources and ideas. We are looking for a well-qualified graduate to join this exceptional department who shares our vision, is passionate about Economics and who will bring their own individuality to this warm and supportive team.

In addition, any prospective candidate must show an active commitment to the values and expectations of our school community and to the welfare of the pupils within it. The enthusiasm to assist in a strong co-curriculum is an important quality of all who work at JAGS.

We recognise that celebrating the full diversity of staff and students has a positive impact on all and invite applications from candidates from a broad range of backgrounds. To enable us to make any reasonable adjustments, please let us know when you submit your application whether you have any special requirements.
