Job summary

We have a high proportion of students with English as an additional language and are seeking to appoint a dynamic and talented teacher of EAL as a fixed term replacement for one of our team of three EAL teachers.  You will be required to work across the key stages with small groups of students to enable them to acquire language or to improve their academic and more intermediate language skills.  In addition, the ability to teach a mainstream English class at KS3 or KS4 would be an asset.  You will be joining the EAL Team within the English Faculty, and as part of this professional and highly dedicated team you will be instrumental in inspiring and motivating our students. Our forward-thinking Faculty takes a collaborative approach to departmental development and EAL practice across the school, and you will play a key role in continuing to raise standards.  The English Faculty includes English and Media up to A Level, Whole School Literacy, and English as an Additional Language.  The school boasts a really positive and supportive relationship between managers and staff and between colleagues, and between staff and pupils. Paul Sutton, our Principal, encourages teachers to have an impact beyond their subject and he is always available and happy to discuss ideas with you as to how this can be achieved. We have an impressive range of extra-curricular activities and all our staff are involved in running at least one.  Take a look at the other information relating to this post for details of our employee benefits and why you should consider joining us.
