School Jobs in Colchester

At Colchester High School we aren’t just looking to help all of our pupils achieve their full potential, we also hope to bring the very best out of our teachers and support staff. In professional terms this means, for example, that we offer our teachers and nursery practitioners lots of opportunities to develop their skills and add to their qualifications.

We also give all of our teaching and support staff a genuine opportunity to help shape the way the school works. A couple of years ago, one of our teachers expressed her belief in the educational benefits of learning to speak in public. Today we are registered as an English Speaking Board exam centre, with pupils across the school enjoying fantastic success.

That isn’t an isolated example. We are a school where the potential of our teachers and staff is realised, making this an especially fulfilling place to work. If you would like to join our staff, this section of the site is where we post the details of any vacancies for teaching and non-teaching jobs. Please check back often.
