Working at The British School in Tokyo

The British School in Tokyo, located on two sites at the heart of one of the world’s most vibrant, culturally rich and exciting cities, is a thriving, inclusive school with an international mindset, that has built a reputation for excellence and high standards since 1989. Run as a not-for-profit trust, BST offers A levels, (I)GCSEs and the National Curriculum of England. Allteaching is conducted in English and we currently have over 1,100 British and international students aged 3 to 18.

Why Choose BST

BST is the leading British international school in Japan with the ambition to be one of the best schools globally. To achieve this goal we need teachers who will share our enthusiasm, passion and determination to be the best we can be. Successful applicants will be caring professionals, fully committed to their teaching and to life-long learning, and willing to challenge themselves at the highest level.
In return we can offer outstanding opportunities for professional development and career advancement. There is a generous package for teachers including highly-subsidised accommodation, relocation flights, annual home flights allowance, comprehensive health insurance and other significant benefits. Above all, of course, there is the opportunity to live in one of the most vibrant and exciting cities on the planet, the chance to explore this culturally rich and diverse country and, with the rest of Asia on our doorstep, an open invitation to discover a whole new world.
