We are seeking an
enthusiastic, committed and successful Teacher of English who has a passion for
the subject and is keen to contribute to our faculty. The successful candidate must be committed to
providing high quality teaching and learning for all students and must be
willing to reflect on their practice to ensure they are always striving to be
the best teacher they can be. ECTs are welcome to apply, and we will be happy to discuss the support
we can offer you as you continue your professional development.
We are an
enthusiastic and committed team dedicated to providing our students with a
broad and balanced knowledge-rich curriculum. We believe that students
deserve a varied and rigorous curriculum which is designed to prepare them, not
only for future exams, but also for life beyond school. We aim to instil a love
of literature, the English language and different media in our students to
reflect our own enthusiasm.
In KS3, we aim
to build upon students’ primary school knowledge and skills by exploring a wide
range of fiction, poetry, drama and non-fiction. By the end of Key Stage 3
students have a good understanding of a range of texts and are ready for the
challenges of GCSE. In Years 10 and 11 students follow the AQA GCSE
specification. Students complete GCSEs in English language and English
literature. The school also offers GCSE film studies and is soon to introduce
BTEC media. At Key Stage 5 we offer A levels in English literature and English
language and literature. Sixth form students can also opt for A level film
studies or an OCR extended certificate or diploma in media
The faculty strongly believes that students
can gain invaluable insights, enjoyment and engagement from learning
opportunities outside of the classroom. We see these extra-curricular
activities as an intrinsic part of developing our students, allowing them to
reach their fullest potential. When conditions allow, these activities
include our new English super-curriculum, meeting visiting poets and authors,
poetry workshops, creative writing clubs, film club, competitive mock trials
and theatre trips..
