Advert

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding temporary English teacher. Our English Department thrives on the notions of inclusion, creativity and enthusiasm for the subject. We deliver a broad curriculum building English Language skills through the teaching and analysis of English Literature texts. Our newly re-written KS3 curriculum is designed to build skills over time towards GCSE and the new Subject Leader would be given some additional time in the first term to ensure schemes of work are re-written and are sufficiently challenging students to reach the top grades.

The ideal candidate will be passionate about the English curriculum and how this can be taught in an inspiring way to maximise exam success, spark students’ passion for the subject, and to help students to lead successful future lives. They should also be able to evidence a proven track record of high impact in teaching, learning and curriculum excellence, to support strong outcomes and learning experiences. The ability to extend students’ engagement beyond the school day, through extra-curricular would be an advantage.

The department attained strong results last summer, especially in English Literature with over 80% of students gaining a Grade 6 or higher in English Literature and 25% gaining a Grade 8 or 9. The post holder would be expected to ensure that the English Language grades match or exceed the Literature grades.

 Our ideal candidate will display:

  • A passion for teaching English with evidence of enabling students to surpass expectations.
  • Experience in teaching classroom English at all Key Stages with a good curriculum knowledge and understanding of GCSE and A-Level English requirements. 
  • Experience of using data to push students to (and beyond) their targets.
