Blackstone Recruitment are currently working with a group of Private International Schools who are recruiting for a English Teacher to join one of their Upper School teams based in Hillingdon. At this International School in Hillingdon, their mission is to make their students ready for anything, meaning they are an active learning partner rather than a passive education provider.

The broad and flexible curriculum at this International School is designed to help students excel, ensuring they’re ready for the next stage of their academic career. Underpinned by the International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement courses, AP Capstone Diploma and the US High School Diploma, their curriculum emphasises life skills as much as academic excellence, with a focus on experiential learning and leadership that ensures they nurture confident, caring, well-rounded individuals who are ready for the future.

Hillingdon’s 11-acre campus is less than 14 miles from central London, enabling students to benefit from opportunities in both the city and countryside. Their magnificent Greater London campus has outstanding facilities, and a wealth of history, art and culture right on its doorstep.
