We are looking for a leader of English to bring literature and language to life. We know English has the power to aid students’ understanding of what it is to be human, to communicate and create with flair and to develop their voice in the world. We are a growing school and we have ambitious plans for the students. We have a developing library and supportive team to lead.

Sir Thomas Fremantle is set in North Buckinghamshire for 11-16 year olds serving the local community. The school is in easy reach of Milton Keynes and Aylesbury. We benefit from great facilities – the school building was only opened in 2017.

We are driven to ensure all our students have an incredible education that inspires and prepares them for the next step in their journey. With 600 students we are able to really get to know each of them and our sense of community is a real strength of our school.

Your professional development is really important to us. We want you to have the skills and training so you can flourish in your role. We care about your wellbeing and we want to work with you to ensure we do all we can to support you.

We would love to show you around our school to meet our wonderful students and to get to know us better.
