Job overview
About the Post

We are looking for outstanding UK-curriculum, IGCSE and A-level teachers. Experience of working in top British schools, particularly in the UK but of course also internationally, is very important and UK teaching qualifications essential. Our teachers need an unquenchable desire to make things better: excellent knowledge, skills and understanding are requirements, but we are always trying to improve, to redefine, to grow. If you simply like the idea of doing what you have always done – or what everyone else always does – but with nicer weather and great beaches nearby, this is the wrong school for you. Yes, the weather and beaches are great; but we are here to do things better, to work harder (yes – not just smarter), to be more committed, to get better outcomes, to give more attention, than we have ever done.

The House System is a fundamental part of life at WCIB and teachers in the Senior School are also House Tutors.

In a lively day school which seeks always to inspire and excite students, a willingness to contribute to areas of school life outside the classroom, including sport, is always advantageous. All teachers are also asked to offer enrichment activities, which are delivered in timetabled sessions during the school day.

About Wellington College
Founded by Queen Victoria and opened in 1859, Wellington College was created to honour the memory of the first Duke of Wellington, who not only defeated Napoleon at the battle of Waterloo in 1815 but also went on to serve the country as peacetime Prime Minister. Over 160 years later, the Tatler calls Wellington ‘clearly a leader in the world of education’ and it is, without doubt, one of the top schools in the UK and across the globe.

About Wellington College Bangkok
Wellington College Bangkok opened in August 2018 and will grow to accommodate 1,600 girls and boys aged 2-18 years. The school’s facilities are world-class: the design and appearance are modern yet combine distinctive features of Wellington College, Berkshire and elements of Thai culture. The buildings are set amidst a large, beautiful, green campus in Krungthep Kreetha, a suburban area midway between Bangkok city and Bangkok International Airport, right next to the expansive greens and fairways of the Unico Grande Golf Course.

In our first year of operation, we filled classes from Pre-Nursery to Year 6. In September 2024, we will open our first Sixth Form classes, having expanded naturally year on year. Student numbers in the four-form-entry Junior School are very buoyant and, on the back of becoming the first school in the world to gain full COBIS Patron’s Accreditation within the first year of operation, and subsequent full membership of FOBISIA, then recent Accreditation from CIS, the College is already recognised as one of the best international schools anywhere. Our new Senior School building (the first of two) is a spectacular and extraordinary development which confirms Wellington as the most dynamically progressive and educationally significant new school in the region.

It is a fundamental principle that every child can thrive when provided with outstanding, wide-ranging and open-ended opportunities to develop, explore and learn. Our students’ individual responses to these opportunities, shepherded by some of the best teachers in the world and supported by our uniquely dedicated pastoral teams, can set them on the path to extraordinary academic achievement—which, at Wellington, routinely goes hand-in-hand with excellence in performing and visual arts, sport and service to others. This is what it means for the whole child to flourish.

Longlisted candidates will be interviewed via Teams/Zoom on a rolling basis (please note that longlisting begins as soon as we read an application we like - please don't wait till the deadline!); UK-based teachers whom we shortlist are normally asked to permit lesson observation in their current schools, followed by final interviews at Wellington College in Berkshire. Alternatively, we may request a video. Please note that you must obtain the permission of your Head Teacher before you share a video with us.
