What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint an outstanding teacher of English who is able to lead others within the English faculty in our continued drive for excellence. This post also carries a whole school responsibility for the continued development of literacy across the curriculum, for which additional time is delegated. An ability to teach drama is desirable but should not deter candidates from applying if they cannot offer this subject.

We are seeking someone who has a proven track record of success, high aspirations, enthusiasm, passion and drive to support us to continue to move forward in the pursuit of excellence within an embedded culture of care and support.

The English faculty consists of the full time faculty leader and two other full time English specialist teachers.

The faculty uses an inhouse curriculum at Key Stage 3 and offers Edexcel English Language, English Literature and drama at Key Stage 4. All classes are taught in mixed ability groupings.

This is a key role in our school and the successful candidate will be expected to become an integral member of the staff team and will be expected to demonstrate full commitment to the students, school and its community.

You will need to be able to support and promote the Christian values embedded in school life and to support the wider ethos of the school; to encourage students to achieve not only high levels of attainment but also to develop a love of learning, a breadth of interests and skills, resilience and personal development which will continue in later life.

You will be an applicant with either experience at middle leadership level or an aspirant middle leader. Someone who sets high expectations, can translate vision into plans and will strive to achieve positive outcomes.

As a school with a strong pastoral focus of welfare, care, support and safety you will also be a highly effective Form Tutor, an approachable role model and able to actively listen and communicate with students, staff and a wide range of audiences.
