What skills and experience we're looking for

This is a really exciting time to join our English department and become a key member of our talented and supportive team. Having just received a rating of Good from Ofsted in November 2023, you will be joining us on our journey to ensuring that Marlwood is an exceptional school that lies at the heart of a close knit community. With around 550 students, we are a smaller than average secondary school and this brings with it many benefits, not least our ability to get to know our children quickly, understand their individual needs and place high quality education at the heart of everything we do. Our values of Resilience, Respect and Responsibility are lived throughout our school community.

The English department has a broad, ambitious and engaging curriculum, which teaches students to master the Marlwood English 4Cs: Comprehend, Contextualise, Critique and Create. The curriculum has been meticulously planned in-house to allow our students to master the 4Cs in a way that is right for their particular backgrounds and experiences. We have a bank of central lesson resources which support our staff with planning, foster collaboration and help embed consistency through the department.

We pride ourselves on our CPD support, both at school and Trust level. As a school, we invest in personalised coaching for all staff, with a focus on subject-specific pedagogy and teaching and learning. We also have a central Trust education team who support and deliver high quality training. In addition, we deliver comprehensive ECT induction in association with the Five Counties Teaching School Hubs Alliance and Ambition Institute.

We would welcome and encourage those who are ECTs or early in their career to contact us, as well as those with more experience.

What the school offers its staff

Marlwood School is situated in leafy South Gloucestershire, less than 20 minutes away from the heart of the cosmopolitan vibrancy of Bristol City Centre. This is a unique opportunity; the school has a strong identity as a small rural school and is supported by a loyal and aspirational local community. It is located on a stunning site in Alveston, near to the Severn Estuary and with excellent transport links to the M5 and M4.

Our commitment is to provide each and every pupil with a high standard of education that sets them up for a happy and successful life.

Commitment to safeguarding

CSET is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful candidates are subject to child protection screening appropriate to the post, which will include an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check for the children’s workforce and a Children’s Barred List check.

This is a warm and friendly school with a family feel where
each child is appreciated and cared for who they are, as well
as what they achieve and go on to become.

Being a smaller than average secondary school, our size is
definitely our strength. We pride ourselves on being a kind
and caring student focussed school, where every member of
staff makes it their business to get to know each child as
soon as they enter the Marlwood family.

Our pastoral care is second to none. Our dedicated pastoral
staff work very closely with students to understand their
needs and provide the very best support and care. After all,
happy children are more likely to be successful children!
Marlwood has recently received investment that is funding a
facelift of the school to include new classrooms for art,
design technology and science. The school also benefits
from expansive grounds including tennis courts, astro pitch
and a multi-purpose playing field. There is a real sense of
fresh air at the school!
