What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint a new faculty leader who has a real passion for their subject and is equipped with the skills to maximise outcomes for students within English at both KS3 and KS4. At KPHS we have introduced a range of faculties which share good practice, foster a sense of competition and work collaboratively to improve student outcomes whole school. The leadership of this faculty is vital to ensure consistency across all year groups. The faculty lead will line manage all TLR holders within the faculty and will monitor, evaluate, and strategically plan areas for improvement across the faculty. This is an exciting opportunity for an existing leader who has effectively demonstrated their ability to develop teaching and learning strategies across their department, engaged students both inside and outside the classroom and has consistently demonstrated improvements in student outcomes. The new faculty lead will need to collaborate with existing TLR holders to initially evaluate the curriculum within the faculty and to further align the subject intents with the school’s overall intent - ‘We Cooperate, We Pioneer, We Belong.’ They will also look to increase both the outcomes of English by overseeing the mapping, sequencing, and execution of the existing KS3 curriculum model. The faculty leads will also work to ensure that all departments take an active role in the preparation of whole school assemblies, experiences, activities, and possible drop-down days
