A full-time English Teacher is required for November 2021 or January 2022 in our award-winning and Outstanding Church School (SIAMS).

The school of 1000 pupils, plus a Sixth Form of 300 students, is attractively and conveniently situated close to the Ribble Valley and has excellent motorway connections via M65 to M6 and M62.

The English Department is very successful and occupies a central place in the life of our Church School. In summer 2019, 82% of Year 11 gained a GCSE grade 4-9 in English Language, and 31% a grade 7-9.

A committed and enthusiastic teacher is sought to teach English throughout Key Stages 3 and 4.
