Teacher of English job summary

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..
