Teacher of English

We seek to appoint a well-qualified and versatile English Teacher from September 2018.  This is a full time position with the option of some Media at KS5 and possible Head of Year role for a suitably qualified candidate which would attract a TLR payment.

English is taught throughout the 11 - 18 age range and at all levels of ability. We enjoy results significantly above the national average.  KS3 has a varied and interesting curriculum which follows the literary cannon chronologically giving both breadth and diversity. All groups in KS3 are mixed ability.  KS4 classes are set and we follow the AQA syllabi for both Language and Literature.  English is popular at A-level with both OCR English Language and OCR English Literature being offered.

The English department enjoys a collaborative and collegiate ethos with the quality of classroom teaching at the heart of everything we do. The department is at the centre of the school’s teaching and learning innovation and enjoys a partnership with the Prince’s Teaching Institute.

The successful candidate will be expected to be an excellent classroom practitioner. As a school we value highly the development of new and existing materials and the post will involve the opportunity to work on the review of existing materials and the development of new ideas.

Above all else, the successful candidate should be enthusiastic about their work with young people and have a genuine concern for their development as individuals.

The school sees the form tutor as a key role in the support, development and welfare of the students and teachers are expected to undertake this role with the same standards and commitment as their subject role.

The role will suit either newly or recently qualified, enthusiastic and aspirational teachers or those with good and outstanding practice who wish to share their expertise and make a difference. The school offers a bespoke CPD programme, research and development, links and networks with other outstanding schools as well as a plethora of extra-curricular and cross-curricular working opportunities.
