Would you like to work at an extraordinary school?

Only ever a maximum of 21 pupils, no bells, uniforms or head teacher.

Dunedin School is seeking an enthusiastic, imaginative and versatile Science teacher with an experienced understanding of the difficulties young people often face in their learning journeys.

We are looking for an individual with both biology/science and other personal skills that can interest and enrich our young people’s school experience.

All the teachers work part-time with hours to reflect the needs of the current pupil cohort. Job satisfaction is high with the opportunity to gain a range of professional skills in addition to your subject area. Professional development is strongly encouraged as is participation in CPD opportunities.

Candidates should be registered with the General Teaching Council Scotland, or be eligible for registration.

About the School

Dunedin is a second chance school for young people who have not been successful in more mainstream education. It caters for the individual pupil and offers a flexible educational experience.

Many of our pupils are referred to us for social and emotional reasons. Our aim is to help them to once again access and enjoy education and to help them achieve qualifications.
