Staff Vacancies

Bishop Wordsworth’s School is a unique school in a unique place where we fuel pupils’ wider intellectual curiosity, extending their knowledge and understanding beyond the narrow confines of exam syllabi with the aim to engender a passion for learning together with the skills required to pursue that passion independently.

  • A comprehensive program of CPD
  • The support of highly experienced friendly departments
  • Well-motivated and able students
  • Engaging curriculum experience
  • Extra-curricular and International trips and visits
  • Access to onsite sport facilities
  • Teachers Pensions Scheme (Teaching Staff)
