What skills and experience we're looking for

We are excited to offer this fantastic opportunity for an inspirational Teacher of English to join our popular and expanding school from August 2023. English is a strong, well established faculty with students that enjoy their subject and are eager to learn. If you have a passion for English and want to instil your enthusiasm into our students, we would love to hear from you.

Pupils at Iveshead are naturally engaged and inquisitive. The key word for the English department is opportunity; if a pupil wants to learn and is enthused about a subject, we are determined that they will receive the opportunities that will enable them to flourish. Our English department is an extremely popular one. We have an active and mutually respectful atmosphere with excellent student behaviour. All of our classes are taught mixed ability which allows us to get the best out of all pupils which is backed up with excellent results.

It is a very exciting time to join us. Iveshead School is an inspirational and popular 11-19 school (soon to be oversubscribed). The character of our school can be defined by our three core values – ‘respect’, ‘enrich’, ‘succeed’. We offer a supportive and welcoming community environment with respect for all, a dedicated staff and a strong blend of activities, which create an enriching and successful education for all students at Iveshead.

Iveshead School is for students aged 11 to 19 years based in Shepshed on an extremely well resourced campus. We joined The Mowbray Education Trust in December 2022. Mowbray Education Trust is a family of schools with the shared belief that every child is deserving of a first-class education, regardless of background or ability. Driven by this ethos, the Trust strives to deliver first-class teaching and learning with integrity. Students and teachers benefit from the Trust culture which promotes an aspirational, open and collaborative approach to learning, enabling each student and colleague to thrive and achieve their full potential. We have built on the reputation and results we have achieved in recent years and continue to provide a caring place of learning for our students. Here they develop the skills and confidence they need to make their way through to the next stage of their lives whether that is higher education, an apprenticeship or employment. The School provides a calm and purposeful learning environment (Ofsted, 2022). We currently have over 900 students on roll and are growing. We are a popular school in the local area and our 2023 intake is likely to be oversubscribed. Our Sixth Form provision is also growing and attracts students from the local area, not just those who have completed their GCSEs with us. The character of our school can be defined by our three core values - ‘respect’, ‘enrich’, ‘succeed’. We offer a supportive and welcoming community environment with respect for all, a dedicated staff and a strong blend of activities, which create an enriching and successful education for all students at Iveshead. We have two specialist units within our school offering dedicated provision for students with SEMH and Autism. Our latest Ofsted Inspection reported that students with specialist educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) enjoy being part of this inclusive school.
