Job Description

A private non-denominational British school in Madrid offering a British education to boys and girls of all nationalities from the ages of 2-18 is seeking to recruit an outstanding Head of Chemistry to join their successful Senior School Science department from September 2021 or January 2022

The education offered follows the British National Curriculum.

Founded as a private school in September 1967, the primary school was inaugurated in 1987, and since 1990, the whole School has been situated in La Moraleja, a residential estate 13 km to the north of Madrid.

Academic levels are high and in June 2020 79% of students achieved A-A* at A Level, which meant three of our pupils gained places at Oxford and a further 25 at UCL, LSE, Imperial College and Edinburgh. Two students also turned down places at Oxford and Cambridge to study at Yale and Stanford respectively.

The Chemistry department were also delighted with pupils' examination results at IGCSE, achieving 100% A*-C.  

These results are testament to the motivated and well behaved pupils, excellent teaching standards and the state of the art science laboratories which were  in September 2019.

You’re a native English speaker, with a relevant Science Teaching qualification and a specialism in Chemistry. Experience teaching IGCSE and A level Chemistry in an International is desirable but not essential.

In addition to an excellent salary, you will receive €1,500 euros settling-in allowance if relocating from abroad and join the schools pension plan
