Head of English (with experience to IBDP level)
Required: August 2019
Location: Beijing, China
Region: Far East and South East Asia
Curriculum: UK / IBDP
Experience: 5+ years
Sponsorship: Single or married, with tuition for up to 2 dependent children.
Salary: from 27,500RMB per month
Contract: 2 years renewable

School Overview: This is a selective international school and one of the top international schools in the region, part of a well-respected and much sought after education group. The school is at an exciting stage of its development, having grown very significantly in the past decade and now numbering approximately 1,000 students aged 1-18. They have outstanding students from approximately 60 nationalities, who thrive academically and who are committed to achieving their best, and who grow as true global citizens through a culture of respect, opportunity and personal development. Curriculum is based on the English National Curriculum, with adjustments made to content to better reflect their international student body and context. In Sixth form (Years 12 and 13) the students study the IB curriculum. The school is housed in a purpose-built campus with outstanding facilities in the safe and family-friendly suburb of Shunyi, which is only 20 km from the city centre of Beijing.

Location Overview: Beijing is a bustling city with more than 13 million people on an area of 16,800 sq. km - the size of Belgium. The Beijing Municipality is flat and has a very orderly design - north, south, east and west circumnavigated by six concentric ring roads. The Beijing seasons are clearly marked by changes in weather and temperatures, and surprising splashes of colours. Beijing today is a city of vast contrasts - the new intermingles with the old, and the whole city is developing rapidly. Being a proud member of the WTO and successful host for the 29th Olympics Games, Beijing has set an even greater pace of development and change. Beijing is also home to a sizeable expatriate population comprising members from the business community, NGOs, embassies and foreign students.
