JOB | Part-Time Teacher of Latin (and Greek), Westminster Abbey Choir School

Part-Time Teacher of Latin (and Greek)

Westminster Abbey Choir School is a remarkable school. It exists to educate and care for the 30 boy choristers of Westminster Abbey. Unique amongst choir schools, Westminster Abbey Choir School admits only singing boys, all of whom are boarders. It is thus a small, tightly-knit community, with a strong sense of shared purpose both among pupils and between pupils and teachers.

This role is likely to be in the region of 0.3 of full time and will involve approximately 4.5 hours teaching Latin to pupils in Years 6-8 and (probably) one hour Ancient Greek to pupils in Year 8. Ideally the teaching would be spread across two or more days and it is possible that a timetable could be written to accommodate other commitments elsewhere.
