Kings is a popular school with an excellent record of staff development. We have a friendly and united team of highly skilled staff. Ten of our staff have gone on to take up headship positions in the last 10 years. This is something we are rightfully very proud of.

We are often looking to recruit high quality staff to teach in a range of subjects but always have particular demand in the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science. If you are a good teacher in one of these subjects and think you would fit in well teaching in our school then we invite you to complete an application form rather than wait to see a position advertised.

Kings College welcomes applications for both our teaching and support staff vacancies.
