Working at Blundell's

Blundell’s is an exciting and dynamic place to work and we welcome applications from well-qualified, enthusiastic candidates at any time.

Indeed, we are very experienced and successful at training excellent graduates to become outstanding teachers without needing to do a PGCE; you can gain your teaching qualification at Blundell’s whilst in the classroom. We are a regional training centre for the Independent Schools Teacher Induction Panel and we have a team of dedicated staff who take a keen interest in making you a better teacher, whether you are just starting your career or are looking for the next step.

Blundell's has a reputation for the collegiality of its staff and the positivity and friendliness of its pupils. The outstanding characteristic of Blundellians is their positive ‘can-do’ attitude. The main finding of our 2019 Independent Schools Inspectorate report was that the quality of our pupils’ academic and other achievements is “excellent”, and the quality of our pupils’ personal development is also “excellent”. It also noted that; “Pupils throughout the school demonstrate strong development of self-confidence and self-awareness, at levels appropriate to or, for many, beyond their age. Pupils showed their justifiable pride in their own and in others’ achievements, without appearing in the least arrogant or excessively competitive.”

Not only do we recruit outstanding teachers, Blundell’s is committed to employing a range of great support staff including nurses, catering staff, porters and administrators to name but a few. You can be sure that you will be supported and encouraged to thrive in any department.

From the day your employment starts with us, you will not only be working in the beautiful Devon countryside, you will be part of a supportive and rewarding environment where you will be eligible to join a great pension, enjoy fabulous meals during term time and have the use of our outstanding sports and social facilities.
