Job overview
These are very exciting times for The King’s School Canterbury in China. Throughout its extremely long history, the King’s School, dating back to the year 597, has undergone many changes and maintained its position at the forefront of education. Having arrived in Shenzhen and opened a very successful Pre-Prep School (Kindergarten), the King’s School Shenzhen International, in 2019, with the opening of our magnificent second campus, we have now begun the next stage of our project, a Prep and Senior School preparing young people for life in this quickly changing world and delivering them to university. As an international school, we remain fully aware of our responsibilities to China and to ensuring that our local students maintain a strong Chinese identity whilst gaining a global outlook.

The connection between Shenzhen and Canterbury (and its soon to be built school in Cambodia) is a genuine one with regular visits and exchanges between the schools planned. In addition, we are privileged to be able to share resources and expertise, a common philosophy which focuses upon academic excellence, a wealth of co-curricular opportunity supported by pastoral care of the highest quality.

Our new campus in Qianhai, Shenzhen, accommodates over 1000 Primary and Secondary pupils in state-of-the art purpose-built facilities comprising: library, health & well- being centre, robotics lab, various performance halls, theatre, recording studio, sports hall, swimming pool, a martial arts room and outdoor sports and play facilities, all alongside other specialist classrooms and laboratories. We also have a sizeable five-day-a-week boarding community.

King’s offers a truly all-round education with a wide-ranging curriculum blending with the co-curriculum in a long and full school day. We borrow from the best of China and the UK but give everything our own special King’s twist with a strong emphasis upon breadth, creativity and communication. We are a performing school. A lot is therefore expected of our students who are stretched without being stressed in both their academic and non-academic pursuits.

In such an environment, King’s pledges to put student pastoral care and well-being at the top of the agenda at all times. The campus buildings and landscaping are designed with this in mind and the house and tutor system add a special level of care for all students.

We are now seeking a range of home-room teachers and subject specialists to join our enthusiastic and dedicated team of teachers for both campuses. We expect our teachers to believe in and put into practice our philosophy of an all-round education, based upon creative, active and interactive learning. They should also be outstanding in the way they support the children through each and every moment of their educational journey. We value teachers who are fully engaged with this approach and are prepared to be part of this very special community. This is an exciting and challenging opportunity to join the school at this early stage in its development and help to lay the foundations of what we expect to be a great institution.

Shenzhen, China’s fastest growing city, offers a high-quality lifestyle and is an increasingly popular place to live. The city has everything from green mountains to beaches, from traditional shopping and sightseeing areas to the most spectacular shopping malls. The transport network is both easy and efficient within the city; it also provides direct access to the rest of China and Asia. Our teachers enjoy a competitive, generous salary, and numerous benefits such as an accommodation allowance, medical insurance, 100% tuition fee remission for staff children.

Applicants should be fully sympathetic with the King’s ethos – please look carefully at the school’s website. They should be highly professional but flexible in their approach, willing to take on a variety of tasks and fit into wider community life. It should be pointed out, however, that all foreign nationals must fulfil some key criteria to qualify for a work permit.

This is a rolling process, and we shall consider all applicants as their applications are submitted.
