Curriculum Leader - English job summary

The English Faculty at Moor End Academy is an amazing team to join!   We are an Outstanding Faculty, officially recognised in the academy’s outstanding Ofsted report of June 2012, which stated: “Teaching in English results in rapid and sustained progress due to the highly imaginative curriculum, excellent use of stimulating learning resources, rigorous use of assessment and tightly focused planning.”

Our curriculum is driven by creativity and challenge. Students love English and they respond positively to our imaginative and stimulating approach.

At KS3, students study a curriculum covering a range of creative topics where we ensure the breadth and depth of knowledge needed to build on from KS2 and prepare for KS4. We believe in challenging our students, and so cover an array of texts ranging from Stevenson’s ‘Treasure Island’ to Bronte’s ‘Wuthering Heights’.

At KS4, students follow the AQA exam board, for both Literature and Language, with opportunities to explore literary theory, and learning beyond the exam board content.

We have a strong tradition of offering additional enrichment opportunities to all students and we welcome any suggestions and input which would further enhance this. We believe in ensuring that all students have the opportunity to experience theatre, film and literature in different forms, regardless of the experiences that they may have outside of school. We work closely with other departments to develop our cross curricular links, at both KS3 and KS4, ensuring students are exposed to learning beyond the classroom, and experience practical applications of their skills and knowledge.

As a member of the English Faculty, a wealth of opportunities for personal and professional development will be open to you.  You will be given the chance to take responsibility for leading on key areas of change, such as the development of speaking and listening skills, or how we can promote learning outside the classroom, as well as opportunities to contribute fully to the faculty review process.

Achievement of students is outstanding because they consistently make significantly more progress than students nationally in English. You will be part of maintaining these high standards and will provide opportunities for students to extend their love of English beyond the classroom. 

Moor End Academy is a very exciting school and the English Faculty is at the forefront of academy life.  If you want to be part of a vibrant, successful and creative team who are not afraid to take risks, then we’d love to hear from you!

The successful applicants will be required to undertake a Criminal Record Check via the DBS. The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
