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.
