What skills and experience we're looking for

“Once you learn to read you will be free forever.”- Fredrick Douglass

With our continued growth, we are seeking to expand our English department. We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, passionate and knowledgeable Teacher of English, who can offer a high-quality learning experience within the department. You will be passionate about teaching English inside and outside of the classroom.

What the school offers its staff

Priestnall is situated in Heaton Mersey, a suburb in the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport, bordering the Manchester Local Authority – notably, Burnage. The school serves the communities of the ‘Four Heatons’: Mersey, Chapel, Moor and Norris. Priestnall is a non-selective, non-denominational, ten form entry 11-16 secondary school, there are approximately 1250 pupils on roll. The school is part of the Laurus Trust (September 2023), a multi-academy trust, whose shared vision provides the framework and core values for our secondary schools.

Our 2023 GCSE results showed 74% of students achieved both English and Maths GCSEs at grades 4 – 9 and 56% achieved this measure at the gold standard, ‘strong’ pass of grade 5 and better. 16% of students succeeded at grades 7 -9. 24% of the total grades achieved were at grades 7 – 9 and 61% of grades were at 5 – 9.

Priestnall is very much a part of the wider community and the partnership between students, staff and parents/carers is vital to the continued success of the school. We endeavour to provide students with the best possible opportunities to succeed and develop a love of learning that will last and that will support them as they take their next steps in life.

We have high expectations of all members of our school community, and we provide opportunities for students to engage with the wider life of the school and, importantly, to develop the qualities, attitudes and habits which will allow them to flourish. At Priestnall School, we place the professional development of staff at the very core of what we do.

Providing high quality learning opportunities – and removing any barriers – is at the centre of what we want to achieve for our students, and we remain committed to ensuring all our students can get the very best out of their time at Priestnall School.
