More on how to apply
We are looking to appoint an exceptional teacher to join our exceptionally positive and forward
thinking English faculty from September 2021. Teachers with strong subject knowledge are
encouraged to apply. This post is suitable for NQTS and experienced teachers.
Why join us?
● We are committed that classrooms should be disruption free so that every minute
counts and are adopting a centralised approach to behaviour centred on a warm/strict
philosophy and shared routines across the school.
● We think you, the teacher, is the expert. We promote the importance of teacher led
lessons based on brilliant subject knowledge, great explanations and skilful questioning.
● Our commitment to genuine development. Our evidence based model of teaching is
based on the work of Rosenshine and Lemov, and from September all teaching staff
(including the Headteacher) will receive coaching feedback at least every fortnight.
● We are committed to staff wellbeing and adopting sensible approaches to workload. We
recognise the efforts and achievements of all our staff on a weekly basis and never take
anyone’s work for granted.
● We are on a journey of which you can be a driving part. Our school improvement
groups, led by non-SLT members, are crucial to driving change in the school.
We believe this is an exciting time to join the school and help our students reach their undoubted full
potential. If you can dream big, work hard and also have a sense of fun, I genuinely believe that you
will really enjoy working at Thurstable.
