Considering a career in teaching?

We welcome applications from graduates with strong academic qualifications who have a passion for the subject they want to teach and a commitment to the success and well-being of their students.

We train teachers on the job in conjunction with an external provider, with the aim of achieving Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), which allows employment across the maintained and independent sector.

Throughout the training period STAHS provides:

  • Salary
  • Reduced timetable
  • A dedicated, trained subject mentor
  • Access to a vibrant professional development programme
  • A high-quality, stimulating learning environment, focused on developing a love of learning
  • An outward looking community – a dynamic co-curricular programme and exciting partnership opportunities

The second year of the process is an NQT induction year delivered via the Independent Schools Teacher Induction Programme (IStip). We are also pleased to receive applications from those who have qualified elsewhere and who need to complete their induction.

Further information on the different routes into teaching can be found on the Independent Schools Council website.
