Working at Oxted
Teaching at Oxted is hugely fulfilling and our outstanding staff and wonderful students make us a great place to work. Working at a large, fully comprehensive school which is proud to be part of The Howard Partnership Trust provides a wealth of opportunities through our extensive CPD programme and career progression prospects. Regardless of your experience or level of responsibility you will have a range of exciting opportunities to ensure you are always improving your craft.
We welcome applications from both well qualified teachers and those who are at the beginning of their career. The main thing is that you are passionate about improving students’ life chances and capable of contributing to a highly effective and supportive teaching team and our extensive enrichment programme. We offer an excellent NQT programme along with an ‘NQT Welcome Bonus’. We are also part of the DfE’s ‘Return to Teaching’ programme for more experienced teachers looking to return to the classroom.
Many of our teachers work with the 6th Form as well as the lower school. Staff are encouraged to become fully immersed in the broader life of the school, whether that is raising money for charity, attending the Y8 camp, or supporting the School Show. We keep a keen eye on work-life balance through our Wellbeing Programme, and there are regular social events for staff. The school has excellent sporting facilities including a heated outdoor swimming pool available for staff use.
