What skills and experience we're looking for

The English Department at Wilmington Academy is currently seeking a full-time teacher of English. Wilmington Academy has recently been judged ‘Outstanding’ in a recent Ofsted visit in which a ‘deep-dive’ was conducted in the English Department. The English Department is an extremely established department where collegiality and collaboration is at the forefront of all we do. As a team, we are experienced and ambitious, especially when it comes to the continuous development of our curriculum, which we are very proud of. We strive to provide a nurturing and inclusive environment where students can develop their skills, cultivate their creativity, and build meaningful relationships. The ideal candidate will be experienced, driven and passionate. We are seeking a Teacher of English who is not only knowledgeable in their subject matter but also committed to building strong relationships with students, colleagues, and parents. Collaboration is a core value in both our school, and our department.

What the school offers its staff

The Academy is very successful, rated by OfSTED as Outstanding in all areas, where students from a wide variety of backgrounds and starting points can flourish and succeed. The IB philosophy is at the heart of the curriculum and is carefully designed to meet the needs and aspirations of all our young people. We have an extensive programme of enrichment and support that provides extra opportunities for personal development and growth and students are encouraged to contribute to their wider community. We are housed in state of the art buildings in a semi-rural location just outside of Dartford. Wilmington offers a calm and purposeful learning environment where students are thoughtful, polite and respectful.

In September 2017 we became an International Baccalaureate World School and offer the IB Career-related Programme in key stage 5. In July 2020 we were successfully authorised to deliver the IB Middle Years Programme in Key Stage 3, to ensure we provide our students with a truly world class education. Value added puts it in the top band for similar schools nationally in Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 and examination outcomes are among the best of non-selective schools in Kent.

Academic excellence, hard work and good manners are expected of all our students. International- mindedness, cultural understanding and an appreciation of the benefits diversity can bring are at the heart of what we believe. Our success is achieved through teamwork. Subject teams work closely together to share resources and ideas to achieve the very best outcomes for our students. We support the Trust model of small schools within a school, so that no student is left behind. Vertical tutor groups, an excellent pastoral programme underpinned by a strong moral purpose, helps students to develop into responsible, well-educated young adults who are ready to take their next steps in life. A large proportion of our students go on to University and high level apprenticeships.
