Middle East, Abu Dhabi UAE
Repton School Abu Dhabi is seeking an outstanding Science (Chemistry) Teacher for an immediate start. About Repton School Abu Dhabi Repton Abu Dhabi is a prominent school on Reem Island in the heart of 'new Abu Dhabi'. We've been here since 2013, growing quickly due to our popularity with the local and expat community alike and our quality was recently recognised though the award of a 'Very Good' rating by ADEK with several outstanding features, which we seek to build on in the years ahead.
We follow a British independent school curriculum which incorporates elements of the English National Curriculum but which allows highly skilled teachers to develop an appropriate curriculum for an independent school in an international environment. In 2018-19 we extended our offering to IGCSE, and in 2021-22 will be offering A Level courses for the first time.
Though it's the first time offering this for us in Abu Dhabi, we pride ourselves on extremely close links to our sister school Repton Dubai which has been rated 'Outstanding' for several years and has an impeccable track record of delivery at Key Stage 4 & 5.
The whole course of study through the school is designed to develop pupils as independent and lifelong learners as well as encouraging a spirit of intellectual curiosity and the pursuit of knowledge. This is achieved not only by what is studied in lessons but by formal prep time and links between academic and cross-curricular opportunities, including field trips outside of school.
All aspects of our curriculum are delivered with a rigour stemming from proven and traditional teaching methods and are bolstered by the latest innovations in teaching practice.
Further to this, the school has ready access to the latest in curriculum planning, assessment and monitoring strategies and the staff regularly review their teaching practices to ensure a fresh and dynamic approach to education.
