About Southbank

Southbank International School is a high achieving independent school based in central London. We aim to attract the best teaching and administrative staff, to maintain and build upon our successful reputation as a centre for excellent teaching and learning.

We are a truly international school with a diverse student population of more than 70 nationalities. The school is based over three campuses in the centre of London and we teach almost 20 languages. We seek to appoint staff members who have the willingness to recognise the diversity that exists in the student body, to teach from a multi-cultural perspective and to practise the highest standards of professionalism.

  • Diploma Programme – Westminster (ages 16-18/19)

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. Appointment is 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.
