Notting Hill & Ealing High School, one of London’s leading independent girls’ day schools, has an exciting opportunity for an inspirational teacher to lead a flourishing Economics Department in both its curricular and extra-curricular activities.

We are looking for a well-qualified and enthusiastic teacher of Economics, with a passion for the subject and excellent subject knowledge. The ideal candidate will have experience of creating engaging schemes of work, leading trips/visits, managing university applications (particularly to Oxbridge level) and be fully committed to the vibrant extra-curricular life of the school.

If you are a good communicator who can enthuse and inspire both pupils and colleagues and have exciting ideas about the teaching of Economics, and the ways in which they can be further developed and encouraged, we would be delighted to hear from you.

The Department

Economics is one of the strongest and most popular subjects in the sixth form. In recent years the uptake of the subject has increased significantly and our results at A Level are consistently excellent. A number of students apply each year to study Economics at university, including Oxford and Cambridge.

A number of activities are run outside the classroom including competitions such as The London Institute of Banking & Finance Student Investor Challenge, the Tycoon Enterprise Competition, as well as the Royal Economic Society’s essay competition. There is the chance for students to attend an inspirational day of economics at the annual Economics in Action student conference in addition to the encouragement of hosting visiting speakers in school. A successful trip to New York was run in 2020, which we hope to be able to deliver again in the future.

Teaching at NHEHS

“Teaching here is all about being able to have in-depth conversations with students about your subject and helping to enthuse them with the same passion as you have. Teaching at NHEHS is exactly what I imagined teaching would be like when I got my first teaching job; it’s what teaching should be!”- Head of Department
