FACULTY LEADER FOR ENGLISH

An exciting opportunity
to join Nova Hreod Academy, the most improved school in Swindon

Bordering on the beautiful Cotswolds
and within commuting distance of Bristol, Bath, Reading and Oxford

We are looking for a Faculty Leader to join our dynamic English team as we continue our journey to becoming an outstanding school. We are focused on raising standards for children and young people to ensure the school is the best it possibly can be for our community. You will also benefit from support and wider opportunities from our United learning Cluster and partnership with Swindon Academy.

It is an exciting opportunity to join Nova Hreod Academy, the most improved school in Swindon which was inspected by Ofsted in January 2017 and judged to be a "good" school. Inspectors noted that "the Principal insists on high standards of behaviour and discipline across the school. This allows teachers to focus on their teaching without the distraction of poor behaviour."

We are looking for a Faculty Leader who:

- is an well qualified, excellent English teacher with experience of subject leadership
- is a dynamic leader with high expectations and a commitment to improvement
- can demonstrate excellent organisational and inter-personal skills and the ability to lead in a team
- has clear vision, energy and commitment to all aspects of school life
- has a desire and passion to make a real difference to the lives and life-chances of our students

UNITED LEARNING

Nova Hreod Academy is part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.

Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.

As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
