Vacancy Description / Summary

We are seeking a suitably qualified and enthusiastic teacher to teach biology from Primary 7 through to Advanced Higher level.

Facilities comprise bright and spacious purpose-built labs with visualisers and LCD interactive boards, dedicated laboratory technician support and a sixth year project room. Candidates should be GTCS registered or eligible for registration. St Margaret’s School operates its own salary scale which is above the national pay scale. Subject to satisfying eligibility criteria, the successful applicant will be automatically enrolled into the Scottish Teachers’ Superannuation Scheme, but will have the right to opt out.

St Margaret’s has an Employee Assistance Programme which offers free and confidential advice on both work and personal issues.

About the School

The only girls’ school in Aberdeen, St Margaret’s has around 370 pupils ranging in age from 3 to 18. Our school is large enough to offer flexibility and choice in terms of the curriculum and extra-curricular activities, but small enough to ensure that each girl is well known within a friendly and family atmosphere.

St Margaret’s staff are experts in teaching girls and are committed to supporting each girl to be all that she can be both inside and outside the classroom. At St Margaret’s we have specialised in girls’ education since 1846. We believe that a single-sex education offers girls the space in which their intellectual and physical identity can blossom and which is free from stereotype.

St Margaret’s is proud to have been named The Sunday Times Scottish Independent Secondary School of the Year 2020.
