Careers at St Paul’s

We normally appoint graduates with a degree in the subject they wish to teach. We recruit from a wide variety of sectors, including post doctoral research, universities and industry and commerce.

Above all, we look for teachers who are passionate and knowledgeable about their subject and who delight in enthusing young people about learning.

For teaching staff, we offer:

  • a salary scale significantly above that found in the maintained sector
  • a subsidised accommodation scheme for eligible staff
  • a reduced timetable in the first year and extensive professional development opportunities, which can include gaining a PGCE whilst working with us

You will be teaching exceptionally bright students who are well-motivated and eager to learn, and you will have access to superb facilities and teaching equipment. You will be working with talented and interesting colleagues in a riverside location in a pleasant neighbourhood, close to Central London and good transport links.

For the children of established staff, there is the opportunity of greatly subsidised education at Colet Court, St Paul’s and St Paul’s Girls’ School (subject to the usual entry requirements).

The excellent reputation of St Paul’s makes teaching here a strong basis for promotion to other posts.
