jobs description

North London Collegiate School (Singapore) opened in August 2020 and offers an academically ambitious education in keeping with the aspirational ethos of NLCS (UK). The school is purpose-built, boasting impressive state-of-the-art facilities.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, highly qualified and committed Teacher of Spanish or French, with an outstanding track record of success, from August 2024. This is a unique opportunity to join a leading international school as it enters an exciting new phase of development. Now in our fourth year, our student body is nearing 1300.

The successful appointee will join the Spanish or French department and teach the subject throughout the Senior School (Grades 6 to 12). Candidates who offer both languages should clearly indicate this in their letter of application, along with the level to which each language can be taught. All members of staff are expected to be involved in pastoral care within the school community, usually in the role of form... tutor, and also to contribute actively to the extra-curricular life of the School.


The ethos of NLCS (Singapore) echoes that of NLCS (UK) – every effort is made to recreate the ethos of the UK ‘parent’ school whilst taking into account and remaining sensitive to the local culture and context.

The School aims to provide a first-rate ambitious academic education for every child, which inspires a lifelong love of learning and gives the knowledge, attitudes and confidence to flourish.

At North London Collegiate schools, academic success is gained, not through an emphasis on results, but by creating an atmosphere of rigorous scholarship; students are encouraged to study beyond the examination syllabus in order to develop their intellectual independence and love of their subjects. Pastoral well-being is of the utmost importance, and good relationships are fostered between students and staff and between the students themselves.


The curriculum reflects the academic ambition and aspirations of NLCS (UK), and schemes of work will broadly reflect the curriculum of NLCS (UK). This is supported by an extensive co-curricular programme of Sport, Music, Drama and other activities, which closely reflects that at NLCS (UK), and are provided to enrich and broaden the education offered, developing the talents and confidence of students.


North London Collegiate School (UK) was founded in 1850 by Frances Mary Buss; she aimed to offer an academically ambitious education to girls, similar to that available to their brothers. The School has pioneered women’s education for over 160 years and remains among the highest achieving schools in the UK. Exam results regularly top the UK league tables, and the School has repeatedly outperformed other prestigious schools regarding Oxbridge success rates.


In 2011, NLCS opened its first international school in South Korea: NLCS Jeju. The School, now entering its eleventh year of operation, and has established itself as one of the region's most successful schools.

In September 2017, NLCS opened its second branch school in the UAE: NLCS Dubai.


Singapore is a thriving hub and an intriguing blend of Western modernity and traditional Asian culture. With a population of 5.6 million, Singapore is lauded for its rich culture and vibrant entertainment and is a prime location for expatriates seeking a high quality of life and a beautiful environment.

The Singaporean Government has invested in the education sector as a key priority to support the country’s economic development. With two universities in the top 100 in the world, Singapore’s higher education offer is considered one of the best in Asia. The international outlook within Singapore has led to international partnerships with universities offering joint degrees, research programmes and research collaboration; it also attracts 75,000 international students annually from around the world to study at their institutions.
