This is an exciting opportunity for a well-qualified teacher to take responsibility for the delivery of Latin teaching throughout the College.

A full job description and application procedure details should be obtained from: The Principal's Office, King William's College, Castletown, Isle of Man, IM9 1TP

Tel: 01624 820400 Email: hr@kwc.im

Closing date for application is Friday 3rd February 2017

Job Description

1. The School
King William's College was opened in 1833 through public subscription and the support of Bishop Barrow's Charity, which itself had been founded in 1668. The School enjoys a magnificent setting facing Castletown Bay in the south of the Isle of Man. For most of its history, the school operated primarily as a boys' boarding school supplemented by day boys. Girls were first admitted to the Sixth Form in the late seventies and the school became fully co-educational in 1987. In 1991, College merged with the Buchan School, (situated in Castletown and founded in 1875), to provide education for young ladies, also under the auspices of Bishop Barrow's Charity.

The two sites now constitute one school administered by a single Board of Governors and with the same overall vision and ethos. The sites are less than 2 miles apart and the Buchan provides Nursery (currently operated by an external provider) and Junior School curricula for children from 4 years to 11 years of age. The Senior School provides a non-selective education up to GCSE/IGCSE and all Sixth Form students take the International Baccalaureate Diploma. There are currently 167 children at the Buchan School (excluding the Nursery) and 369 at the senior school of whom 113 are in the Sixth Form. There are 2 boarding houses at College with a total of around 100 boarders, many of whom are from overseas. Although there are now a large number of day pupils, the School retains much of the structure and ethos of a boarding school. College is a Church of England Foundation although the pupil body includes those of many faiths.

The Senior School is now run on year-group lines for academic purposes while the House system has been retained for social interaction including House Music, Drama and other cultural activities. The College is widely recognised as a leading IB Diploma school and was the first UK school to abandon the A Level system and adopt the IB in the same year. The College was recently named 'Sunday Times International Baccalaureate School of the Year', a testimony to its commitment to the highest educational standards.

The College site is dominated by the main school building with its quadrangle and Clocktower. There is a range of specialist buildings of varying ages. The Buchan site is constructed around an early Victorian country house, in a pleasant parkland setting on the edge of Castletown.

2. The Department
Latin is an optional subject available in all year groups at the College and over recent years it has grown significantly in popularity meaning that at present there are students in every year studying the subject. Typically there is a set of 8-10 pupils in each of the junior years, and with additional pupils joining the school in the more senior year groups the GCSE sets maintain a similar size. The Latin option in the International Baccalaureate operates according to demand and there are currently 3 students in the Lower Sixth and 2 students in the Upper Sixth. The results, at both GCSE and IB, are consistently strong.

In the junior years, pupils work through the Galore Park Latin books which cover key grammar and vocabulary as well as translation and comprehension passages drawing on classical mythology and historical aspects of domestic and political life in the city of Rome. At GCSE level, students follow the OCR Latin syllabus which includes set texts such as Virgil, Aeneid Book I and Tacitus' 'Death of Messalina.' In the IB, students can opt to study the subject at either Standard Level or Higher Level and the course is broad, including both Language and Literature. Set authors include Ovid and Cicero and students also study a selection of short extracts (both prose and verse) themed under topics such as History, Good Living and Women. In addition, students are expected to complete a Research Dossier which is a collection of annotated primary source materials demonstrating an in-depth study of an aspect of classical language, literature or civilisation which the student has chosen to explore.

3. The Appointment
We are seeking a well-qualified, enthusiastic and committed Teacher of Latin to take charge of the subject throughout the school. They would undertake all of the teaching and to make this into a full time role they would also be expected to do a small amount of teaching in another subject. Knowledge of the IB would be advantageous but is not essential.

The appointment would suit either a teacher recently or newly qualified, or one with some years of experience. We would also consider applications from graduates without teaching qualifications provided they have a passion for the subject and wish to embark upon a career in teaching. They would be given appropriate support and there would be the option of studying for a PGCE whilst employed at the College.

King William's College is committed to the education of the whole person and therefore the extra-curricular and pastoral dimensions are vital adjuncts to the achievements of high academic standards. All pupils are assigned to a personal tutor and one hour each week is set aside for tutorial work. The person appointed will have a clear vision of the development of the individual and will show natural enthusiasm and skill in close communications with pupils and have an impact on influencing their development.

We have a comprehensive games and extra-curricular activities programme and all members of staff are expected to contribute generously to this programme and to endorse the principle of extending the pupils' range of interests and expertise.

The College is a Christian Foundation and all staff are expected to attend regular worship in Chapel.

4. Salary and Remuneration
King William's College has its own salary scale and benefits. The Isle of Man is an internally self-governing area of the British Isles and, as a result, taxes are substantially lower than in the United Kingdom (the standard and higher rates of income tax being 10% and 20% respectively). In addition, personal allowances are much more generous than their UK equivalent.

The person appointed would have the opportunity to join the Isle of Man Government Teachers' Pension Scheme which is identical to, and transferable between, that which operates in the United Kingdom.

Accommodation may be available in return for duties in one of the boarding houses.

5. Applications
Candidates should complete an application form and send it together with a letter explaining why they consider themselves suitable for the post to Mr J H Buchanan, the Principal, by 9.00 am on Friday 3rd February 2017. Applications may be emailed to: hr@kwc.im.

Teaching Post Application Form
Non Teaching Application Form

Our son has been at King William’s College for two years and has settled in very well with the full support of the boarding staff and teachers, who have demonstrated great kindness and caring. The highly disciplined, but dynamic education system has helped our 15 year old son to adapt well and his confidence has noticeably improved in a short space of time. What's especially pleasing is that not only does the College have an excellent calibre of teaching staff and a strong academic curriculum, but we have been surprised and delighted to discover their excellent music achievements! With such great experience, our second son will also join KWC starting at Lower 5, to have a well rounded education. We cannot be more pleased with our decision to send our sons here all the way from Hong Kong!
