Our aim is to put teaching and learning at the forefront of our mission to provide excellent services to the international community of students and teachers. The school has an exceptional teaching salary scale, and we endeavour to recruit teachers from across the world.

Southbank International School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Safer recruitment practice and pre-employment checks will be undertaken before any appointment is confirmed. Appointments are subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check for regulated activity and overseas police checks from any countries a candidate has lived or worked overseas for three months or more in the past ten years or completed their teacher training outside of the UK.
