The Green Room College, or GRC as it is known, is the 6th Form of an independent school providing a second chance at education for up to 30 young people aged 16-18, who have, for various reasons, found it difficult to learn in mainstream education. They all have Education Health Care Plans indicating a variety of needs, including support for their ASD, ADHD, ODD, PDA and/or emotional and behavioural difficulties.


GRC is based at The Swan in Clewer, a community owned pub which gives students a chance to get involved in community projects and work experience opportunities, as well as learning from our audacious and unmissable curriculum. We provide a broad, lively, and stimulating range of subjects for our students to help ignite their interests and start a path towards employment, apprenticeships or college. GRC’s project based learning is taught in conjunction with our ROCCIT programme, which helps to develop Resilience, Organisation, Communication, Community, Initiative and Teamwork. Students take advantage of Horticulture, Cooking, Art, Sport, PHSE and all sorts of work opportunities in our pub and beyond into the greater community. Our students want to be at GRC, it is not a place they are ‘sent’. This is crucial to the culture and success of the college.

We are looking for a visionary teacher to help our students ‘start a path…’. This means leading groups of students in areas such as project based learning, trips, experiences and activities on and off site and even, very occasionally, overnight - essentially we’re looking for someone to come up with engaging and bespoke learning opportunities. We have a clear curriculum that we are proud of which will support your teaching however we are also looking for someone to put their own ideas and passions into this role as the cohort each year is completely unique. Being adaptable is essential. We thread numeracy and literacy through our students’ learning to help develop their confidence. We do offer GCSE retakes and are looking for a member of staff that could lead these interventions for us. In addition, we offer a range of other opportunities to develop their character and secure their future choices.

This role will also run our 4th Dimension where your passions are shared with our students, with the aim to inspire them to develop their own passions. Someone who is curious with multiple fascinations is vital for this role.


Additionally, this role is an important part of the whole school team and will work across the other activities and learning opportunities elsewhere in the school day - this could be coaching students, helping them with sport, gardening and a wide range of other activities.


Our whole team are responsible for developing relationships with our students, helping them take their newly found passions, layer them with the ROCCIT skills they have learned in all activities across the day, and apply them to future opportunities including our weekly Epic Thursday event when the students take over the running of the pub, and our Green Canteen monthly evening kitchen takeover events where we run a restaurant in the pub for the evening. We aim to give them the confidence to start a business or find a job; indeed it is our goal for all our Year 13’s have a part time job when they leave us.


Due to the nature of our students, this role may suit either a primary or secondary trained teacher. GRC are looking for someone who really wants to make a difference to young people’s lives; someone who wants to help them reach their potential by giving them a second chance; someone who is enthusiastic yet understands the need for boundaries, and is energetic yet calm. Do you want to demonstrate your own virtuosity in our college in historic Windsor? Can you be an extraordinary role model? We have a phrase for it - we want someone who’ll make a dent in the universe.

English Teacher
  • The Green Room School Windsor 

  • Opportunity to join our brilliant team. 

  • Unique opportunity to teach English in an Outstanding school (OFSTED Outstanding in All Areas)

  • Support aspects of the school’s creative curriculum (Arts Award)

  • Full Time or Part Time - Mon/Tues/Wed - term time

  • Salary based on skills and experience


The Green Room School, or GRW as it is known, is an independent school providing a second chance at education for up to 25 young people aged 13-16, who have, for various reasons, found it difficult to learn in mainstream education. All students have Education Health Care Plans indicating a variety of needs, including ASC, ADHD, ODD, PDA and/or emotional and behavioural difficulties. 


Our unmissable and audacious curriculum is broad and takes opportunities to provide the cultural capital necessary for students to start a path towards education, employment and training. GRW prides itself on creating a learning environment that students want to attend.


Due to the nature of our students, this role may suit either a primary or secondary trained teacher who first and foremost loves teaching English, but also has an artistic/creative side. The curriculum covers the KS3 and KS4 (iGCSE) English syllabus, but being Independent, the school is not tied to the National Curriculum; so teachers have the freedom and flexibility to take ownership of a dynamic and curiosity-rich syllabus. Our artistic lessons are focussed around a wide range of creativity; our students complete different levels of the Arts Award so there is vast scope for inventiveness.


GRW are looking for someone who really wants to make a difference to young people’s lives; someone who wants to help them reach their potential by giving them a second chance; someone who is enthusiastic yet understands the need for boundaries, and is energetic yet calm. Do you want to demonstrate your own virtuosity in our school in historic Windsor? Can you be an extraordinary role model? We have a phrase for it - we want someone who’ll make a dent in the universe.
