Salesian School

Enlightening minds, uplifting hearts

We welcome teachers from Ireland

IMG_2566_380.jpgWe are keen to appoint exceptional individuals from Ireland who wish to start or develop their careers in full-time education and make a significant contribution to the learning, and lives, of our students. We have a long tradition of working with teachers trained in Ireland and have a significant number of Irish teachers working with us. As a UK centre for Initial Teacher Training, we offer comprehensive support for colleagues converting to the English system, ongoing mentoring and Newly Qualified Teacher accreditation. We are not an agency (there are no recruitment fees), just a successful school that wants to hire the best teachers.

More about us

A thriving and active school with a long and well-established reputation, we are a Catholic co-educational comprehensive school meeting the needs of children of all abilities from 11-18 years. We teach over 1500 students, including around 400 in our Sixth Form. Our school is situated in Surrey, on the capital's main outer ring-road (the M25), 5 minutes' walk from Chertsey Station. The centre of London is only 25 minutes away by train from Woking, a nearby town where we can help you find affordable accommodation.

Our last Ofsted Inspection was in September of 2013 when we were judged to be "outstanding" in all categories. We were obviously delighted with this tribute to the staff and students who work so hard here, but we are always looking for ways to do better. Our motto is "Enlightening Minds, uplifting hearts": this is a hard-working but happy place. Our ideal candidates are energetic, ambitious (for themselves and their students) and enthusiastic!

Please watch our welcome video (above), and email or call (01932 582520) to have an initial conversation with one of our team about working here. This can be followed by an interview in Ireland if applicable. Our latest vacancies can be found here - we look forward to hearing from you.
