Teaching in world-leading independent schools

Teaching is an enormously rewarding profession with the opportunity to inspire and enrich the lives of young people.

HMC schools are thriving, leading independent schools which pride themselves not only on providing a wonderful experience for their pupils but an environment where you could flourish in a teaching career – teaching subjects you’re passionate about – and professional development and career progression are encouraged.

At HMC schools there are fantastic opportunities to train to be a teacher – gaining skills, experience and professionally recognised qualifications, for newly qualified teachers and for those further along on their career journey.

Pupils in HMC schools enjoy a personalised approach to learning and benefit from a wide range of co-curricular activities across the arts, sport and more, which teachers are encouraged to enrich with their own passions and interests.

Individual and distinctive, there are 296 HMC Member schools in the UK and Ireland which have a worldwide reputation for leading the way with outstanding academic performance across a broad range of subjects.
