  • Full-time


From September 2023 - We are seeking an enthusiastic and well-qualified graduate to teach Economics and Business Studies at A level.


Economics and Business Studies are increasingly popular A level subject choices and as a school we are keen to grow the department further by recruiting an additional member of staff.

The successful candidate will have a good degree in a relevant discipline and possess excellent subject knowledge. They will be someone who is able to encourage and nurture informed and independent thought in every student. The position would suit an experienced teacher looking for a fresh challenge, someone looking for their first move, or someone seeking their first teaching role, either as an ECT or as part of an initial teacher training programme (ITT). This is a full time position, although part time hours may be considered for the right candidate.

Results are excellent at both GCSE and A Level, with girls going on to study at Oxbridge and the best Russell Group universities. In addition we offer a vibrant and eclectic extra-curricular provision and have an enviable reputation for pastoral care.

We offer excellent working conditions in an outstanding environment. Mayfield has its own salary scale and the salary package for this position will reflect the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate. All staff are expected to contribute to the extra-curricular life of the School. Accommodation is available for those involved in the boarding life of the School.
