English has a record of success at all key stages (2022: GCSE English Language 85% 4+, 69% 5+ and 30% 7+ and GCSE English Literature 78% 4+, 67% 5+) and a successful uptake for English Literature at KS5 (2022: English Literature 85% A*-B).

The English Department is a strong team of specialist teachers with excellent results at all levels and it is no coincidence that English is regularly cited as a “favourite” subject by students. You would be joining a team of passionate teachers who show all round ability and commitment. In addition to our scheduled meetings, we frequently enjoy meeting informally to share resources and share ideas across the team. Meetings to scrutinise and moderate pupils’ work are used to improve our own work. We are a team of teachers who like and respect each other; there is a lot of support involved in our day-to-day work and in our participation in the wider life of the school. The English rooms and office are grouped together close to the staffroom, main office, coffee and photocopiers.
