You will be able to enthuse and motivate staff and students alike with your passion for English your presence and personality. You will go above and beyond to ensure the success of our students and be passionate about improving outcomes for our young people.
English is a dynamic faculty with excellent teachers and a need to improve its examination results. Members of the team are totally committed to ensuring successful outcomes for our students and the improvement journey has been started by the present post-holder who is going on maternity leave and does not want to come back to the post. At post-16 we offer AQA A Levels in English Language & Literature, English Literature and Media, and the ability to teach to A-level is helpful, but not a pre-requisite for the post. We deliver AQA GCSE Language and Literature and AQA GCSE Media.
