Dollar Academy has been a co-educational day and boarding school since its foundation in 1818. Today, it provides an exceptional all-round education to around 1,350 pupils aged 5-18. Our focus is on encouraging the individual talents and ambitions of every young person, in a positive and supportive environment that fosters the development of transferable skills, self-confidence and strong personal values. A belief in developing the whole person is central to the Dollar ethos.
The school’s location is undoubtedly one of the most scenic in the country, set against the Ochil Hills and the historic Castle Campbell, but within easy reach of the major towns of the Central Belt and just 40 minutes from Edinburgh Airport. The Dollar community is welcoming and vibrant. The whole school sits within a single, stunning 70-acre campus.
The Academy is seeking a permanent, full-time, enthusiastic and suitably qualified teacher of Computing Science to join a progressive and successful department.
Rising pupil uptake and new opportunities provided by the Futures Institute at Dollar Academy mean that we require an additional teacher. The ideal candidate would be an individual who demonstrates a genuine love of the subject, enthusiasm for teaching it and an imaginative, creative and energetic approach to helping pupils unlock their potential.
The post will commence in January 2024.
The Academy has a rich co-curricular programme in which all members of staff are expected to participate.
The salary for the post will be SNCT Main Grade Scale with the Dollar enhancement of 10% in addition.
