Hi,

I have just been offered a teaching job at the British School in Maglie (near Lecce). Does anyone have any advice or opinions on the British School in Maglie, the town itself, or the local area (southern Puglia)?

Thank you.

Nick

Hi there,

I live in Lecce, which is the nearest (small) city to Maglie.

Maglie is a town of only moderate size but is affluent, pretty and has a nice vibe. Lots of nice cafes, restaurants etc. The southern region of Puglia is known as Salento and you are not far from some stunning coast line. As you can probably guess it is an area very much geared towards tourists coming to the coast in the Summer months and depending on what your interests are you may find it pretty quiet. Southern Italy can be pretty scruffy on the surface but Maglie is one of the prettiest towns in the area. You will need a car to get around though. The vast majority of people will be very welcoming and although you are unlikely to find many English speakers you will find even the smallest bit of Italian will get you a long way.

I can't speak about the school but I would advise extreme caution and do a lot more research as I know that in the past a school in
Maglie has had a very bad reputation. Please note I am not saying it is this one as I just don't know and besides things change all the time, but be careful.

Good luck. If you are a lover of Italy than some time in
Maglie could be a wonderful experience if you are prepared to put in some work.

My girlfriend and I are also thinking about working at this school. Has anyone worked there who can give their experiences? There are some negative comments on the internet but these are from around 6 years ago. Has anyone worked there in the last 2 years? And would they (or not) recommend it? Any advice would be a big help, thanks.

I've worked here before. Would never do it again, neither would the two other teachers who were working alongside me at the time.
