St Paul’s is a selective independent boys’ school with about 930 pupils in the age range 13 to 18, of whom up to 30 are boarders. The school (which includes a Preparatory School, Colet Court, for boys of age 7 to 13) occupies a 45-acre site on the south bank of the Thames. Teaching takes place within an eight period day, five days a week. St Paul’s ranks very highly nationally in terms of achievement at both A level and GCSE.


About the Role

The Economics departments work closely together with a total of six full-time teachers. Both subjects are taught post GCSE only. 

Economics is housed in its own area of the main building, with a departmental resource centre and a computer suite. We offer courses to AS and A2 level in both subjects. 

The department has in recent years organised a study tour of Beijing and Hong Kong, won the Bank of England Target 2.0 Challenge (2012) and ifs Investor Challenge (2007), and been European and National finalists in Young Enterprise (2010). The department also runs a well attended society and offers additional support for those students applying to Oxford or Cambridge.

There has been a considerable expansion of student numbers in recent years.  In this year’s Lower Eighth (Year 12) we have eighty students in eight sets.  The Upper Eighth (Year 13) has sixty students taught in six sets.  Numbers are likely to remain high in the next few years. 

Each student has two teachers in each of the two years, seven periods per week being divided four (micro) and three (macro) in the Lower Eighth, and eight periods being divided three (micro) and five (macro) in the Upper Eighth.

Colleagues within the department also play a full part in the extra-curricular life of the school, taking rugby, soccer, cricket, cycling and athletics teams.
