What skills and experience we're looking for

At HSLC, our ethos is very simple: be useful, be kind and insist that the students become the very best that they can be.

If our ethos resonates with your own and you are an enthusiastic and inspirational teacher, you may be the person we are looking for to join our motivated and successful English department. We seek the very best practitioner who can consistently teach excellent, engaging lessons across Key Stages 3 and 4. The ability to teach Key Stage 5 is desirable, but not essential. You will be able to enthuse and inspire our students with your love for the subject and your creative teaching and personality.

HSLC is a supportive and encouraging place to work and has been graded as ‘Good’ by Ofsted since 2005. We are unapologetically ambitious for every child, no matter what their background, prior attainment or needs. We believe in our mission of actively broadening horizons and promote our core values of being useful and kind.

If our ethos resonates with your own and you are passionate about making a difference to the lives of our young people, then we are keen to hear from you.

The successful candidate will be:

  • An inspirational teacher of English who will enthuse our students;
  • A determined and innovative practitioner with a desire to succeed and to help others do so;
  • A team player who is keen to work with others and proactively does whatever it takes to achieve the outcomes that enable our students to make ambitious life choices;
  • Aligned to our values and mission - if you believe in our core principles you will love being part of HSLC!

What the school offers its staff

What we offer:

  • Support and line management from an experienced Head of Department;
  • A highly effective centralised behaviour system which ensures consistency and rewards good behaviour – there is minimal low-level disruption in classrooms meaning you can make a real difference to our students;
  • A strong staff community and positive team culture;
  • One additional non-contact period per fortnight for CPD activities - CPD is research led and starts as soon as you are appointed;
  • Subject specific policies focused on what is right for you as a department - we do not have bureaucratic and onerous policies;
  • Regular feedback from learning walks and work scrutinies helping you to continuously develop - no formal graded lesson observations!

Commitment to safeguarding

HSLC is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. This post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
