Gordon's School, Surrey - Librarian

Following the retirement of the current Librarian, this is an exciting opportunity to develop the library at the academic heart of in one of the most successful state schools in Britain.

 The ideal candidate will be passionate about developing the library’s place in the curriculum and promoting students’ intellectual curiosity. A librarianship qualification is desirable but not essential. The position is term-time, but there is an opportunity for the successful candidate to take on an additional role during the holidays as the school’s archivist.

Set in a beautiful 45-acre Surrey site, the School enjoys excellent facilities and an aspirational learning environment. Gordon’s is recognised by HM Chief Inspector of Schools as one of Britain’s finest non-selective schools, with circa 800 students including 240 residential boarders and a thriving sixth form.  In 2016, the percentage of students achieving five or more GCSE grades A* to C, including Maths and English, was 97%, which ranks Gordon’s in the 10 top non-selective schools in England. The A*-C pass rate at A-Level was 94%, with 81% of the grades A* to B.

Massively over-subscribed, Gordon’s size ensures that every pupil is well known and nurtured as an individual. The School has a very strong emphasis on academic standards, self-discipline and traditional values and aims to be much more than just outstanding examination results, providing abundant opportunities outside the classroom and exceptional pastoral care.
