Teacher of English job summary

The English department comprises of 12 English teachers, including members of the Senior Leadership Team. We work collaboratively to provide a broad, ambitious, and unique curriculum to all learners. A priority to all in our team is wellbeing, job satisfaction and the all-important balance of home life and work.

The English subject offers a broad and ambitious curriculum that empowers teachers to tailor their learning to their students' academic, social and emotional needs. With bespoke assessment objectives scaled across KS3, teachers are encouraged to select texts and material suitable to the learners in their classes and have flexibility in how they assess learning to ensure the best outcomes for their students. We are continuously adding new texts and resources to our curriculum and are eager to develop the curriculum to meet the needs of teachers and learners alike. KS4 students study the AQA specification and explore themes of power, control and oppression through the set texts: 'An Inspector Calls', 'Macbeth' and 'A Christmas Carol'. They further explore these themes through the Power and Conflict poetry anthology. At KS4, the curriculum utilises interleaved practice to ensure students are prepared for their exams by retrieving prior knowledge regularly and making connections between texts, contexts, themes and ideas.

The successful applicant will be passionate about teaching and learning, have a desire and an eagerness to contribute to the subject area. Experience with or an interest in teaching KS5 would also be an advantage as we look to offer English Language and Literature to our growing 6th Form.

Prospective candidates are encouraged to submit their applications as soon as possible as the school reserves the right to close the advert should we feel able to appoint an appropriate candidate.

Commitment to safeguarding

Our commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children will be reflected throughout the recruitment process and the successful applicant will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check and an online screening check. We also carry out Enhanced DBS checks every five years.
