Taunton School is over 170 years old and is an Independent School for approximately 1100 boys and girls aged 0-18 years, with circa 350 boarders. We aim to challenge, inspire and nurture young people to succeed in a global community.

Taunton School International (TSI) was set up by Taunton School in 1996 to provide a first step for international students wishing to complete their education in a British school. It is located on the school campus, is fully residential and has places for 84 boys and girls aged 14 to 17 years. It shares the school’s facilities and is part of the school community. It operates a term-time one year GCSE course and an academic Senior Summer School.

The School has an opportunity for an EAL Teacher to join our international School on a part time basis from September 2018.

Applications are invited from current EAL/EFL teachers and/or English teachers working with secondary-school aged children in the state or private sector.

Our School ethos is of a shared responsibility and positive contribution from all to the life and work of this busy six-day-a-week boarding and day community. This is what makes Taunton School such a thriving, energetic and well-rounded Independent School. We offer a competitive package and an outstanding educational environment in which to work.
