An exciting opportunity has arisen for a passionate and talented English teacher to join the team, starting in September 2022.

 

The English department is well established at Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys. Staff have a wealth of experience and interests, which bring many dimensions to provision of excellent lessons as well as skills and support for a new colleague! We have enjoyed excellent results at both GCSE and A-Level and a concept focused Key Stage 3 proves a popular launch pad for strong progress. Enabling students into Higher Education with confidence is a strength. A healthy approach to broader, innovative ways to enhance learning is encouraged, and trips add to this.

They will work with the other members of the department to maintain a focus on progress; teaching and learning; and raising achievement.
