Many congratulations to Andrew Hobbs G’83 who has been confirmed as Head Master of Downside School from September 2018.  Read more here.


St Philip’s School in Kensington is looking for one or two Junior Teachers for the academic year from September. The positions are rather like old-skool gappies, but with a bit more freedom and more responsibility – perfect for a gap year or somebody considering teaching post-uni. If one is particularly mature and scientifically inclined, mentored teaching may be a possibility. You will assist in classes, run reading schemes, help with Maths and English, not to mention coaching football, rugby, hockey and cricket, and possibly assisting with ski trips! Successful applicants will be high on energy, good humour, integrity and industry for a 8.00am-5.30pm job, Monday to Friday during term-time. Remuneration c. £15K. For more information contact
