As an English teacher, you are the custodian of a great gift to young people. It is a subject that uniquely cultivates a young person’s capacity to engage and influence the world around them. You will also take young people on a journey into great works of literature which entice them into other worlds, other wisdoms and the wellsprings of humanity. Through literature and language you take the voice of a young person in all its raw passion and skilfully refine and enrich it so it can become clear and compelling. The modern world is full of information which needs to be navigated and understood; success and wellbeing depend on our young people being confident in doing this.  

If these words resonate with you, then this post at Strood Academy for a Teacher of English is right for you.

Strood Academy is seeking to appoint a committed and passionate English specialist who believes in the power of their subject to transform the lives of young people. You will be part of an experienced, supportive department who works collaboratively; sharing ideas and delivering innovative teaching to support and improve learning. 

We are looking for a dynamic, emotionally intelligent and innovative teacher to join a supportive team that is committed to improving the life chances of young people. Joining Strood Academy will enable you to work with like-minded colleagues who share your goals and ambitions. 

This is an excellent opportunity for a teacher to join an academy which is committed to providing high quality professional development opportunities and supporting the English Department in its mission to shape and transform lives. This position is suitable for either an experienced teacher or an Early Career Teacher (ECT).

This is a permanent, full-time opportunity offering MPS/UPS commensurate with experience, starting in Easter 2024.
