What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint a qualified and dedicated Teacher of English and Drama to join our established English faculty and to contribute towards our newly established Drama curriculum in Key Stages 3 & 4. We are an ambitious and growing school and seek colleagues with passion and determination to inspire children’s love of learning and secure the best outcomes for them.

You will play a pivotal role in supporting and enhancing the quality of teaching and learning across Key Stages 3, 4 and 5.

It is an exciting time to be at Carterton Community College – we are a good school and pride ourselves on embodying our values. In our recent Ofsted report inspectors found that our students make good progress and behave well, in a school where relationships matter and there is a strong focus on learning. They enjoy their lessons and fully invest in the school and happily rise to the challenge of our high aspirations.

We welcome applications from both ECT’s and experienced teachers.

You will have a proven track record of improving progress and raising achievement at all levels and will strive to give students exciting and challenging curriculum opportunities.

The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate:

- A thorough knowledge of the English and Drama curricula.

- Excellent knowledge/experience across Key Stages 3, 4. Experience at Key Stage 5 is not essential as this can be developed once appointed.

- Passion and dedication in delivering high standards.

- Experience in planning and adapting an appropriate and challenging curriculum.

- Ability to implement strategies to meet school development targets.

- Outstanding teaching and learning practice, with dedication and enthusiasm for English and Drama.

- The ability to work as part of a team.

- The desire to have a positive impact on students’ lives.

What the school offers its staff

In return we offer candidates:

- A supportive and positive environment with a culture of high aspirations, based on shared values.

- Continuous professional development to further your potential.

- A well-resourced department, complete with high quality Chromebooks, and a fully equipped purpose-built Drama studio.

- Friendly and welcoming students.

- Committed and professional colleagues.
