If you want to teach 11 -18 year-olds, then you need to look for secondary schools rather than high schools (which are usually 11- 14, and do not exist in most English counties). Signing up with a 'supply' (substitute) teacher agency would be the best way to find out what the local schools are like. The majority of full-time jobs come up in May/ June/ July (resignation date is May 31st) but you may find some (especially maternity leave cover etc) advertised at other times of year. Try googling (use the UK pages at www.google.co.uk) to see what's around........searching for supply+teaching+agency+reading might throw up something useful.

"high schools" in America are known sometimes as "colleges" in the UK (our "colleges" are UK's "universities")

A very good school in Reading is Bradfield College, a boarding "high school" started out for boys but now admit girls. Gorgeous campus. Lived there for a few months and fell in love with the place. G'luck!

Most independent and council funded Schools and Colleges advertise their teaching vacancies on the local council website or newspapers. Berkshire has six unitary councils - Newbury, Reading, Windsor & Maidenhead, Slough, Bracknell and Wokingham, each with their own website. So it's advisable to contact their Education or Human Resources department for more information.

Also Ofsted - Office for standards in Education post their findings for each School or College they inspect.

Travel Tips for Reading

The 3 B's of Reading

by easyoar

I saw these B words in the pavement outside a new office block in Reading Town Centre. There was no explanation for what they were, and indeed I should imagine most people don't even notice that they are there.

I tried to get a photograph with all (or just most) of them in, but they were spaced too far apart to make it any good. So I took a picture of each separate word (OK that's sad I know!) and made the montage which you can see here.

If you still don't know what I am talking about, Reading has historically been famous for the 3 B's. These were items that the Town produced. However there is some dispute as to exactly what these 3 B's might actually have been. Whoever made this office block must have known about these 3 B's, and decided to throw in a few new modern B's for good measure (such as Binary - there are lot of computer companies in Reading these days, and as you may or may not know, most computers 'think' in Binary).

Chicken in a hurry

by easyoar about Nandos

Whilst Nandos is fast food, it is a very different experience from most Fast Food outlets. It's also a bit pricier. If you don't like chicken, you probably won't be that interested. If you do, and you like incredibly spicey sauces, than Nandos is the place for you. You sit down, select your order from a menu and go to the till to pay. They then deliver your order to your table and you eat it and leave. The chicken is excellent (be it salad, burger, pitta etc), and the spiciest peri-peri sauce (from Portugal) will blow your taste buds away! You can also get bottomless soft drinks too. The chicken!

The historic towns of Windsor...

by Geoff_Wright

The historic towns of Windsor and Eton have many attractions including Windsor Castle and Eton College. Central London is only 18m away - perfect for a day trip. This tranquil stretch of the River Thames contrasts with the bustle of Heathrow which is only 10m away. Windsor and Eton are linked by an attractive bridge over the Thames, which, for many years, is only for the use of pedestrians.

Quaint Town

by eho

I spent a day exploring Reading, a town about an hour west of London along the Thames. You can take the train from Paddington or a bus from Heathrow there.

Even though I spent a whole day touring the city, I'd recommend it only as a stop over if it is on your way. The most interesting is the Abbey ruins (probably the Museum too) and the narrow streets around the Abbey and the Museum. A couple of hours would be enough to cover that.
