Bourne Grammar School

Teaching at Bourne Grammar School

Teaching here isn’t what you might expect. Our students range from straight A*/Grade 9 Oxbridge candidates, to those who pass their GCSEs with Grades 4 or 5. But the academic spirit of our students is truly remarkable. The result is a school with a very different atmosphere, where students enjoy being in the classroom and enjoy what they are learning.

We are an outstanding, popular, and over-subscribed school that has recently expanded to meet student demand, and there are lots of opportunities for career-minded teachers, whether from the comprehensive, selective, or independent sector. Professional development is taken seriously: teachers are encouraged to participate in external courses; we have great in-service training sessions; and every year teaching staff are seconded to the Leadership Team to gain experience to aid their career progression. We provide extensive support for our trainee teachers and have a proven track record of helping NQTs develop into outstanding teachers.

Our digital strategy means that every teacher is well resourced, each being issued with a high quality laptop and all classrooms have HD projectors and Apple TV. There are also many opportunities for trips, both domestic and international, in almost all subjects. Our success as a school is the result of our high-quality staff, and the contributions we make both inside and outside the classroom.

At Bourne Grammar School we are always looking for promising new teachers. All current vacancies are on the School website, but if there are currently none, we would still like to hear from you. Whether you are an experienced teacher or newly-qualified, or even if you are interested in beginning a career in teaching, please get in touch and send us your CV.

We aim to reply to everyone who is interested in working here, and visiting us is positively encouraged. If you would like more information, have a look around this website, or contact Mrs Jane Gray via or by phoning 01778 422288.
