“The quality of teaching and assessment is outstanding. Working relationships are very good and teachers and students enjoy each other’s company. They work in an atmosphere of mutual understanding, respect and consideration.”
RIC offers a fresh alternative to traditional independent education. All teaching takes place in small, informal groups of mixed ability students.
We are always interested in hearing from confident, enthusiastic, high energy and good humoured A level, GCSE and Key Stage 3 teachers in all subject areas. We are committed to attracting and retaining the very best teachers. As an independent school it is not a requirement for applicants to have QTS but we look for teachers with very strong academic backgrounds in their subjects.
Specific teaching vacancies that occur from time to time appear on this page of the website and are advertised in the TES and/or The Guardian. Vacancies for ancillary staff are advertised in the Kent Messenger. We expect our teachers to be academically strong, comfortable in a first name terms, non uniform setting, to be lively and engaging and to enjoy the company of young people.
RIC is committed to safeguarding children and safer recruitment procedures will be followed at all stages of the process.
