What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint a Teacher of English to start September 2023. We are seeking someone who will be ambitious for our students and committed to achieving excellence in English. The English Faculty is an exceptionally upbeat, forward-thinking, and innovative department, which is cohesive, team-spirited and collaborative. We are looking for someone who can play an active role in contributing to the already high standards within the faculty, fostering an inquisitive approach to English and inspiring a love of reading. English results are strong and improving. In 2022, the English faculty saw an improvement on their 2019 results with 74% students achieving a Grade 4 or above in either Language

This position would suit an experienced teacher as well as an ECT. If appointed as an ECT the post will be payable from 1st July 2023 in order to help in your preparation before the September start.

A primary trained teacher who wishes to make a transfer to secondary would also be considered for this role.


What the school offers its staff

The English faculty is a leading faculty across both campuses. The Achievement Leader of English has been appointed to the role of Assistant Headteacher; we have a new Achievement Leader starting in April, who is a leading practitioner and has links with Winchester University. Both leaders are enthusiastic, approachable and highly supportive. They will work with the faculty to promote collaborative planning, enhance teaching and learning, and to drive up standards of achievement and attainment.

The faculty comprises an Achievement Leader working with three Assistant Achievement Leaders and 10 main scale teachers. They are a cohesive team and have a strong commitment towards the highest standards of teaching and learning through a thematic, coherent and engaging curriculum.

In 2022, 74% of students gained a grade 4 in either English Language and/or Literature, with 59% of students achieving a grade 4 in both English and Maths.

Crestwood Community School had an Ofsted inspection in June 2018, which confirmed that we are a ‘good’ school. We also achieved outstanding gradings in Personal Development and Behaviour and Leadership. They also said that as a school we are “passionately committed to providing a first-class inclusive education for all pupils; tenacious in their pursuit of additional resources and approaches to continually improve provision.” This is a happy school, where staff and students want to be. The #Crestwoodfamily pervades through everything we do.

If appointed as an ECT the post will be payable from 1st July 2023 in order to help in your preparation before the September start.

We will ensure that the successful candidate has:

  • comprehensive induction including a dedicated mentor
  • continuous professional learning, development and improvement
  • the opportunity to contribute to raising standards for all our students
