ESL Jobs in Nanjing

Our bilingual international school in Nanjing is now holding interviews for ESL teachers and subject teachers (Design & Technology). You will be part on an elite team of professional teachers, dedicated to academic excellence and guiding our students through the learning process.

Our school is the first of a number of schools in China opened through an exciting partnership between a leading education company in China and a well respected grammar school in Surrey, UK. The school was opened in August 2020, with approximately 55 students in Grades 1, 2 and 3 (UK Years 2, 3 and 4), 25 students in Grade 7 (UK Year 8) and 20 students in Grade 10 (UK Year 11). Students are aged from 6 to 17 years.

The curriculum up until the end of Grade 9 (UK Year 10) has at its core the Chinese National Curriculum (CNC), which is delivered in Chinese by local teachers. However, there is crucial input from expatriate staff. The academic curriculum is augmented with additional content and skills in preparation for the Senior High School curriculum. Expatriate staff also have a significant role in the delivery of the co-curriculum programme. The curriculum in Grade 10 (UK Year 11) is a bridging programme, designed to facilitate the transfer of students from the CNC to A levels, which will be studied in Grades 11 and 12. With the exception of Mandarin, the Senior High School curriculum is delivered mostly by expatriate staff with experience of delivering a British curriculum.

Originally, the grammar school was founded in Surrey, England in 1509. Over the centuries, the our school acquired further buildings and there has continued to be significant development of facilities over recent years. Today we continue to grow and flourish, while retaining its proud historic roots and traditions. It is consistently one of the top boys’ schools in the country at both GCSE and A Level. The school is extremely proud of its Oxbridge record. In the last decade alone, over 350 offers have been achieved at Oxford and Cambridge.
