JOB | Teacher of Latin and Classical Civilisation, Bishop’s Stortford College

Teacher of Latin and Classical Civilisation


Appointment of a Part-Time Teacher of Latin and Classical Civilisation

Are you looking to teach Latin and Classical Civilisation within a friendly and vibrant Independent School?

Bishop’s Stortford College is a place of learning that provides an outstanding range of opportunities for developing well-rounded, skilful and happy young people.  We pride ourselves on doing this in a beautiful environment with the best facilities.

At the College, we are aware that it is the people who make this possible. It is their energy, imagination and enthusiasm that creates the opportunities, experiences and very special atmosphere for both pupils and staff to enjoy.


The Senior School

Bishop’s Stortford College Senior School is, in the words of ISI inspectors, ‘an exceptional learning community’ – a place where children, as they enter the teenage years, have wonderful opportunities to become confident, well-rounded and interesting young men and women who take with them the qualifications, skills, adaptability and respect for others to thrive in the world beyond school.

Ensuring this process of all round growth – academically, morally, spiritually, athletically and creatively – is our aim. Every pupil is encouraged, taught and challenged to fulfil his or her true potential by being immersed in an environment of discovery and wholehearted participation.

Senior School pupils enjoy increasing freedom in choosing how they spend their time, with our highly regarded and extensive activity programme, in addition to outstanding sport, music, visual art and drama opportunities, the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme and numerous clubs and societies. The breadth of opportunity is simply stunning even by independent boarding school standards.

The College Houses are a central part of life for all Senior School day pupils and boarders. The strong sense of belonging and level of care between pupils across the year groups, and between pupils and staff, make Bishop’s Stortford College a very special place to be.
