ROLE SUMMARY:

This is a rare and exciting opportunity to join an outstanding and ambitious team at King's College School, The Bahamas, Inspired's new premium school on the island paradise of The Bahamas.

We are looking for an exceptional teacher who brings creativity, a forward-thinking attitude and outstanding experience from the best schools across the world.

King's College School, The Bahamas is a brand-new school that opened in September 2022 in Nassau. It is the only school in the region that is part of a leading global group of premium schools and brings over 50 years of academic excellence from the King's group combined with proven best practices from Inspired Schools across six continents.

For the 2023/24 academic year, the school welcomed over 160 students from Pre-Reception to Year 8, an additional year group will be added every year until Year 13, along with a Nursery.

The school is housed in a newly built 10-acre campus of architectural significance. It offers the highest quality educational facilities, ensuring that students benefit from a learning environment that has been designed for how students learn in the modern day.

King's Group schools have provided children with a rigorous and broad British and international education since 1969 with a focus on developing thoughtful and knowledgeable young people. The success of the group comes from recruiting teachers with the skills and experience to turn the curriculum into dynamic lessons that ignite the imagination.
