We are looking for an exceptional teacher and subject specialist to
join our fantastic English department at Torquay Academy.
Our English department has proven itself to be one of the most
effective and successful comprehensive departments in the South West.
Alongside the strength of our classroom practitioners, underpinning
these successful results is a well developed academic curriculum which our
teachers are highly invested in and are passionate about delivering. A collaborative approach to centralised
planning has meant that our teachers have the best of both worlds - the ability
to shape and develop a curriculum they believe in and outstanding resources
they can shape to suit their individual classes. We believe that all children, regardless of
background and past school experience, are capable of understanding and
learning the top-grade concepts, ideas, and theories needed to transform them
into capable and knowledgeable critics and readers.
In our department, you will be supported in your development both as a
teacher and as a subject specialist. You will be responsible for the expert
delivery of a carefully sequenced and constructed curriculum and, because
resources are centrally produced, given the time and space to become a master
of your craft and your subject.
We believe students of all backgrounds achieve most highly when the
knowledge and concepts required to succeed are made explicit to them, and
revisited throughout their journey across the key stages. We believe that
strong, well structured modelling of analysis and critical vocabulary
enables independence and have been excited by the number of students who choose
to go on to study our subjects at A Level and beyond. If you would like to work
in a department which transforms the life chances of the children of Torbay,
and be equally committed to this end, then we'd love to hear from
Torquay Academy’s results have improved dramatically over the past few
years thanks to our brilliant teachers. We know that the results can improve
further and we are looking for people who are committed, passionate and highly
motivated to join our team.
We believe in effective discipline and support teachers with a strong
pastoral team and centralised behaviour systems. We work hard to reduce
unnecessary workload so that our teachers can focus on teaching great lessons.
We invest in the professional development of all of our staff through 1-to-1
coaching, leadership development and high-quality CPD. We know that a world
class school can only be built by having the very best teachers and you will be
working with colleagues who share a passion for teaching. If you join us you will be signing up to the
belief that “everyone succeeds” and that “every student who joins Torquay
Academy is capable of going on to university”. It is important you share our
goals and values.
