Our talented team are passionate about education. Together we strive, every day, to deliver our ambition: to do the best we can, in everything we do and to encourage our pupils to become caring learners who seek to have the best possible impact in the world.

We are a diverse, exciting and vibrant learning community, located in the heart of São Paulo’s green and pleasant Jardins district.

We provide students with excellent preparation for IGCSE and IB exams, but more even important, we are here to prepare them be better contributors to a better world.

Why work at St. Paul's

At St. Paul's pupils are at the heart of everything we do. Every one of our staff is dedicated to every child’s personal development, growth, and success.

We seek candidates who are highly qualified, experienced, and who are keen to make a tangible difference in the world. Above all, we’re looking for people share the values which we strive to embody every day, throughout our school.

Our values

Kindness

Kindness stands out as our most important value. Without it, our skills, achievements and ambitions count for nothing if they are not demonstrated in a way that respects others. If we show kindness and compassion to each other, it ensures that we all feel valued, but it also sets the finest of examples to our pupils. Whether as an adult or a child, to be a Paulean means to be kind; it’s as simple as that.

Resilience

Schools are inspiring places of work, and provide many rewarding experiences but they can also be challenging. By encouraging everyone to do their best, we have learnt that coping with new situations and challenges helps us achieve the best possible outcomes – for ourselves and our pupils. St. Paul’s is a safe and supportive community where everyone is stretched, challenged, encouraged and recognised for their efforts. 

Responsibility

We all take our professional responsibilities seriously.  These reflect our own professional practice. Supported by line managers and the Human Resources department, all staff target their own professional goals and develop themselves to become the best they can be.  

Adventure

As adults we should never forget the wonder of making new discoveries and the thrill of exceeding our own perceived limits. Our staff are life-long learners who continue to develop and challenge themselves in the classroom and beyond. By maintaining an adventurous approach to life, we continue to learn a lot about ourselves and the world around us. 

 
Inclusion

St. Paul’s is an inclusive community, so we welcome applications from committed professionals regardless of their cultural, ethic, sexual, social or national identity. We believe that school life should reflect the modern, diverse world for which our pupils are being prepared.

 
Aspiration

As Pauleans, we aspire to be the best we can be in our work, relationships and in life. As with our pupils, our staff should strive towards continuous improvement, constantly seeking to do their best in everything that they do. Clearly, we can’t get everything right all the time, but by applying our values, we can exceed our expectations individually and as a school.
