Teaching Jobs in London

If you’re looking for a city that has everything, they don’t get much more iconic than London. Whether you’re picturing the glittering lights of the West End theatre district, the rolling green landscapes of the Royal Parks, futuristic skyscrapers or world-famous landmarks like St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower Bridge and Big Ben; excitement is probably the first word that springs to mind when you think of the UK’s capital city. It’s a fast-paced, fascinating place to live in any profession, but for teachers, London offers something truly unique. You’re right at the heart of something big, and you’ll be able to reflect this in your teaching.

Living in London is an educational experience in itself. Not only is it home to some of the planet’s most famous museums and libraries, but as one of the most culturally diverse capitals in the world, it’s a place where you’ll never run out of things to discover. It’s a famously welcoming community that offers something new around every corner. From Acton to Angel and Whitechapel to Wimbledon, you’ll constantly find inspiration to invigorate what you deliver in the classroom, whatever your subject.

With over 300 schools ranked as “outstanding” by OFSTED at their last inspection, teaching in London offers the opportunity to deliver extraordinary education to pupils of any and all backgrounds. While living costs in London can be notoriously high, teaching salaries in the city tend to reflect this compared with other parts of the UK. Whether you choose to live and work in a borough that’s closely linked to the city centre by a tube journey of mere minutes, like Westminster or in one of the leafier outer suburbs like Richmond or Sutton, by choosing London you’ll discover a teaching experience like no other.
