Following in the footsteps of its English partner School, NLCS Jeju is academically selective, with the aim of providing an ambitious education for all its students and to enable each one to make the most of his or her own gifts. An equally high priority is to maintain a team of professional teachers to whom each student is important, and who can introduce their subjects with enthusiasm and drive.
The students at NLCS Jeju are taught in relatively small classes, an average of 24 students in the Junior School, decreasing to an average of 21 in the Senior School and 14 in Sixth Form IB classes.
All departments are extremely well resourced with textbooks and equipment. Generous departmental budgets ensure that resources are kept up to date and innovative teaching initiatives can be funded. Teachers share offices with colleagues from their own and other departments in order to preserve the collegial atmosphere which is a vital part of the School's philosophy and founding.
The School is fully computer networked and all teaching staff are provided with a Macbook Pro. Each classroom has an interactive white board, equipped with a sound system. The School's technical supports teaching staff with reprographics, audio-visual and ICT resources as well as subject specific needs in art, science and technology.
All members of staff are expected to make a voluntary contribution to the co curricular life of the School. The breathtaking programme caters for a wide range of interests from chess to football, gymnastics to singing but there is always be scope to introduce a new club or activity and share your particular expertise and interest with the students.
Staff are also required to contribute to our Bryant Programme, an extensive range of challenging and fulfilling activities taking place every Saturday morning.
There are plenty of opportunities to help with outdoor activities and staff are expected to help with School trips which could range from skiing to canoeing, museums to mountain climbing.
Teaching is a stressful occupation and taking time out to relax is very important. We have a top of the range sports centre with fitness suite, swimming pool, squash courts and facilities to play many sports.
We provide an extensive programme of support and training for all new staff, including a thorough induction process to introduce staff to the various aspects of NLCS Jeju.
Our generous Inset budget ensures that staff can keep up to date with educational issues and encourages professional development.
