Teaching in the UK - Maiden Erlegh Trust

We are working in partnership with the Maiden Erlegh Trust to recruit Canadian teachers for four of their schools, three secondary and one primary school.

Founded in 2014 the Maiden Erlegh trust governs four schools in total and provides high quality education for nearly 3,000 students. With their motto "Schools for the community, schools as a community" the trust aims to build a family of schools where a community ethos prevails in order to nurture and challenge young people.

This is an excellent opportunity for Canadian teachers to begin an overseas teaching adventure. We offer a £2,000 relocation package which includes two complimentary holidays in Europe as well as support and guidance at every stage of your journey.

What we offer

We offer more than just a job, we offer support and enrichment at every stage of your journey.

How to apply

Applying couldn't be simpler, just register on our website and our team will be in touch.

Interview Days - Meet the Principals

We are also offering you a chance to meet and interview with the principals of the schools in person, or via Skype, in Canada before you decide to come to the UK. We will be in Vancouver at the UBC teaching fair on Friday 18th January. To arrange a meeting simply register on our site today, and our team will be in touch via telephone or email to talk you through the whole process.

Miss Moira Green, Headteacher


"We opened our doors to our first Year 7 students in September 2015 and our school will eventually grow to 900 students, housed in brand-new, purpose-built accommodation that opened in 2016.

A school, however, is not just the building but the community of students, staff and parents working together to deliver excellent outcomes for young people. We are determined that our students will leave Maiden Erlegh School in Reading well qualified and equipped for the next phase of their life. We do this using the educational expertise, experience and leadership from across the Maiden Erlegh Trust, working in collaboration with our sister school."
