Job Description

Graduate Engineer in Residence   /   Graduate Computer Scientist in Residence

Charterhouse is a beautiful school and a wonderful place to live and work.  It was founded in 1611 and moved to its present magnificent 250-acre site near Godalming in Surrey in 1872.  Few schools can offer such a splendid backdrop for teaching and learning, and the School community is very strong, with excellent relationships between pupils and staff.  As part of our ambitious new plans, and building on the success of our mixed Sixth Form, we are excited to be moving to full coeducation from the age of 13 and look forward to welcoming our first girls into the Fourth Form (Year 9) in September 2021.


Maths & Science

We are prioritising innovation and creativity across our curriculum, and we are committed to developing in our pupils the key future skills of technological knowhow, collaborative working practices and problem-solving. Charterhouse’s new Science and Maths faculty opened in September 2018 and our Informatics Hub will be operational from September 2019; this will be the central area for the learning and teaching of Informatics and Computational Science in our curriculum.

Mathematics and the Sciences at Charterhouse are flourishing. In 2018 over a hundred of our Sixth Form exam entries were for Sciences, over half of our Sixth Form pupils studied Maths, and 90% of Further Maths entries were graded A*-A.

The Role

As well as possessing the ability to inspire and motivate pupils, the successful candidate will be passionate about the Mathematical Sciences and will be able to share an infectious love of their academic disciplines with colleagues and pupils alike.  The post holder will teach a timetable in one or more of the Maths, Physics and/or Computer Science faculties along with contributing to the organisation and creation of engaging STEM projects beyond the confines of the curriculum.

Person Specification

Applications are invited from candidates with or without teaching experience; we provide a comprehensive teaching induction programme for those new to the profession. 

Candidates are likely to: 

• Have or be aiming for a II.i or higher honours degree in a relevant mathematical or scientific discipline 

• Have A Levels (or equivalent) in Maths and at least one of Physics or Computer Science  

• Be energetic, enthusiastic, dynamic, creative and motivated 

• Be able to work in a team, and to take initiative individually 

• Be willing to share their passion for Maths and the Sciences with young people, and to inspire them to pursue a wide range of science-related degrees and careers 

• Have a positive attitude towards their own professional development and learning


Candidates will have much scope to craft the role according to their strengths, though the framework for the position will comprise: 

• Teaching a timetable of Maths and one or more of Physics and/or Computer Science, depending upon experience  

• Setting and marking work, and providing regular written and verbal feedback to pupils 

• Liaising with the appropriate department technical staff to ensure the correct planning and delivery of practical work 

• Making a positive contribution to the efficient running of the various departments noted above 

• Contributing to the running, organisation, and creation of STEM projects beyond the confines of the curriculum, for example, running a STEM Club.

The successful candidate will be provided with accommodation on site and will wish to contribute whole-heartedly to other aspects of school life by drawing upon their own interests and enthusiasms. The richness of the curriculum offering at Charterhouse benefits from the experience of colleagues who, for example, coach sport, direct plays, take pupils on educational visits, and support and organise society meetings.


• A full-time teacher has approximately 26 lessons per week of forty minutes, however this post is offered with a reduced timetable 

• All colleagues are expected to undertake duties and to play an appropriate part in the co-curricular life of the school.  

• The School has its own salary scale. 

• Service with the School is pensionable in accordance with the Teachers’ Pension Scheme and permanent members of staff are entitled to a substantial reduction in fees for their children 

• Members of staff may use the school sports facilities (at staff allocated times).
