We are a forward-looking and aspirational department, looking for an inspirational and dynamic practitioner to support us in our drive for further excellence. The post will involve working closely with the Head of English to coach individuals within the team and to deliver training to the whole department in both pedagogical practice and subject knowledge development.
The successful applicant will specialise, or have a special interest, in supporting pupils with low reading ages and weak literacy skills. The ability to teach phonics would be advantageous. At GCSE, we deliver the AQA specification and all pupils study both Language and Literature, taught over
two years. We also deliver the AQA specification at A-Level for both Literature and Language. We have several Examiners in the team and utilise this knowledge within the department.
Kennet School has an excellent CPD programme and the Head of Department will work closely with you to support your own professional development and career progression.
The English Department has long been a model of good practice in the school and results are consistently above the national average and we strive to make improvements to these figures year-on-year. We have excellent uptake at A Level with similar successful results and lots of our students choose to continue their study of our subject at university.
