What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking a well-qualified and enthusiastic Teacher of English to join us from September 2024. The department comprises of friendly, supportive and passionate professionals who are deeply committed to teaching their subject. This is an exciting opportunity for a teacher to come and teach highly intelligent and dedicated students who have a genuine thirst for knowledge. You will be able to teach English to the highest possible level in secondary education, inspiring young people to appreciate high-quality and challenging literary texts. This exciting role offers opportunities for either an experienced practitioner or an early career teacher. A full induction and CPD support programme will be made available to the successful candidate.

Our English department is relentless in the pursuit of academic excellence and rigour. Our rich, robust and well-sequenced curriculum actively encourages students to develop a life-long interest of our language and literature. From Year 7 onwards, we actively seek to broaden and enrich our students’ cultural perspectives by teaching high-quality and challenging literature. We also understand the importance of offering students a true breadth of literature from a diverse range of different writers, backgrounds and contexts. We understand that our literature and language is culturally rich and diverse, and we feel it is imperative that our programme of study reflects this.

What the school offers its staff

We aim to appoint ambitious staff and we seek to prepare them for the next stage of their career during their time at King’s, no matter what that stage may be. We provide a differentiated training programme tailored to individuals’ specific needs. Features of this include:

  • ECT programme
  • Middle leadership development programmes
  • Coaching and mentoring development

In addition to the above, we were proud to honour the recommended pay award in 2023 and we offer continuity of service in the Teachers’ Pension scheme for teachers joining us directly from another UK educational establishment. As a school we are involved with the Cycle to Work and Green Car initiative.
