Job summary

Develop as an exceptional English Teacher at King Solomon Academy
We are looking for an individual with a genuine passion for teaching English at King Solomon Academy and a belief in the potential of every child and that through hard work all pupils can access and benefit from a university education.
KSA is a rare example of a genuinely all-through school, with one curriculum, culture, staff body and leadership team supporting our pupils’ journey from nursery to university. Our approach to English is exceptionally successful. We prioritise fostering a love of reading in Primary and early Secondary so that pupils arrive to the study of literature with a genuine passion for reading and learning. We devote time and capacity to ensuring mastery of all aspects of language so that pupils are confident expressing themselves in any context. Our methodology has led to consistently impressive KS4 outcomes. Every year for the last six years our English progress has been in the top 1% of all schools. In our last published results in 2019, we achieved 51% 7 or above and 90% 5+ in English Literature. At A-Level, we achieved 100% A*-C and our English Literature A-level course is passionately studied by a group of committed sixth form students who are currently on track for very high grades.
We are also proud of all the other achievements our pupils have made which are not captured by these grades: their performances in the Speak Out Challenge, in Twelfth Night as part of the Shakespeare Schools Festival, their confidence in writing personal statements that gain them access to the top universities in the country.
This role represents the opportunity for an English teacher to immerse themselves in a highly developmental environment and achieve true greatness in their teaching. We seek an experienced A Level teacher who is able to combine subject passion with an ability to coach and develop others to deliver excellent outcomes at A Level. We wish to grow our English A Level cohort by fostering a love of reading and of challenging ideas, and seek a teacher who is able to support the existing English team to create a community of independent and creative thinkers in Sixth Form.

To discuss the role, please feel free to email the Principal’s PA, Shaheen Riaz (s.riaz@kingsolomonacademy.org) or phone on 02075636901.
