City of London School for Girls aims to recruit the highest calibre of staff across all the areas of the school. We believe that investing in our staff and ensuring high levels of job satisfaction is important for its own sake and will result in the best possible experience for our pupils. Teachers and support staff consistently work with a professional, committed and enthusiastic attitude. At the same time, staff learning is seen as a strategic priority for the school. At City, we provide a broad range of opportunities for staff to continue their own life-long development by investing in training and support tailored to the needs of both the individual and the whole school.
Please see the FAQs at the end of this page for more information about staff benefits and development.

About the school
The school has about 730 pupils, approximately 90 of whom are members of the preparatory department. There are c150 girls in the sixth form. Entry is by competitive examination and interview at 7+, 11+ and 16+. The school has a strong academic tradition, and virtually all girls go on to higher education. Approximately 20 per cent of the girls in the senior school are on means-tested bursaries, provided by livery companies, the City of London Corporation, corporate and private donors and the school. Achieving academic excellence is an important part of life at City, but so too is the provision of a wealth of co-curricular opportunities, broadening students’ lives with new experiences and challenges. A highly supportive system of pastoral care is in place in which understanding, encouraging and inspiring individual pupils is fundamental. Our school is cosmopolitan in outlook and the staff and students make the most of all that London has to offer.
We are committed to an active partnership programme, to an international outlook and to educating students to be the leaders of tomorrow. Applicants for teaching posts at City should therefore be enthusiastic about getting to know students and providing guidance appropriate to their individual needs. Applicants should also be keen to invest time and energy in co-curricular activities, and to contributing to the strong community spirit which is a prominent feature of the school. City’s traditions and location create a unique atmosphere which is vibrant, confident and supportive. The student body reflects the diversity of London, and pupils commute into school from all over the Greater London area.
The school is an equal opportunities employer. The school welcomes applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their race, gender, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age. The school’s policies on staff conduct reinforce the expectation that staff treat all individuals with respect, fairness and equity.
CLSG is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. All applicants should read the School’s Child Protection Policy, which is available on the School’s website, and are required to declare any criminal convictions or cautions, or disciplinary proceedings related to young people.
