What skills and experience we're looking for

If you are an exceptional and inspirational English practitioner who would be able to add expertise to our team of teachers then we would love to hear from you. We are looking for a person with drive and personal ambition who will inspire and enthuse our pupils and instil in them a love for the subject and a desire to learn. The role will require a creative individual, committed to the power of a love of language and determined that all pupils receive the very best of provision in this core subject.

At Risedale School, the English Department, as part of the Communications Faculty, is committed to excellence in teaching. We pride ourselves on putting the pupils at the centre of all we do, from creating an engaging, positive, welcoming environment to exploring cutting-edge pedagogy. This has led to improving outcomes and progress for our pupils and we are now one of the strongest subjects in terms of progress for pupils.

The department is housed in a suite of rooms, facilitating support and joint working as part of our everyday practice. Our ‘Street of Positivity’ is all about empowering young people to develop into highly successful individuals. We also have regular access to the Library, a creative space for pupils to develop a passion for reading.

At KS4 pupils study English Language and English Literature. Pupils follow the Pearson Edexcel specification. At KS3 pupils follow an interleaved curriculum focusing on high-quality texts from across the English Literary Canon. We are passionate about our curriculum and are seen as being at the forefront of curriculum design across the school.

We are looking to appoint a forward-thinking, innovative and creative specialist. The successful candidate will be open to new ideas and aligned to the philosophy of the school and the faculty and be committed to ‘A Love of Language Learning’, our faculty mantra.

The successful candidate will be open to new ideas and committed to the philosophy of the team. The profession requires resilience, hard work, adaptability and a sense of humour.
