  • Salary under review. 35 hours per week (75% teaching, 25% non-contact)


Regius School is an Independent Christian School, situated in Newcraighall (69a Whitehill Street, EH21 8QZ), serving Edinburgh and the Lothians with a current roll of 26 pupils from P1 to S2, organised across three small class groups. There are two full time teachers with a class room assistant.

We are looking to appoint an experienced teacher to head up our small school community of learners, teachers and support staff within a Christian context. He or she will work closely with the School Board and existing parents’ groups.

Our school has a unique and exceptional atmosphere, providing a happy, caring and creative environment and a curriculum which inspires, engages and challenges our learners. We affirm the close relationship of home, church and school. Our curriculum policies and procedures have been developed from discussions about how to achieve our school vision that ‘each child will see themselves as God the Father sees them’, and for our children to dream big dreams and be the very best they can be!

Our head teacher will manage the day to day running of the school to the benefit of our pupils and families, ensuring all children flourish and achieve their full potential. Although fee paying, our aim has been that school fees are kept at an affordable level.

Membership of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups Scheme will be essential on taking up appointment along with GTCS Registration (Primary).
