What skills and experience we're looking for

Do you want to be part of a successful and supportive team?

We are looking for an inspirational Teacher of English and Drama with the initiative, drive and determination to teach KS3 and KS4 and contribute to our creative and evolving curriculum. The English department is a collaborative team who are all passionate about seeing young people succeed in their subject. Their results at Key Stage 4 over the past three years have seen year-on-year improvements due to the hard work and determination of staff and students alike in this area.

As a team that is always at the forefront of innovation in the classroom, we are looking for an individual who can add to this already thriving team: a teacher who builds excellent relationships with students and inspires them in their learning. We offer an exceptional development programme with support which goes beyond the ECT years, and we welcome applications from candidates with all levels of experience.

If you share our vision based on the unshakeable belief that children learn through all aspects of their daily lives and that their values and knowledge, experiences and habits are as important as their academic qualifications, we would be delighted to hear from you.

What the school offers its staff

Why work for us?

We work hard to make all staff feel like they belong and can flourish. We create a bespoke induction plan for all new staff, shaped with their input and based on their experience, strengths and aims. All teachers get an additional hour every fortnight of protected PPA, totalling 6 hours for a full-time teacher. We have a culture of 1% improvements, which means no hour-long lesson observations and time wasted producing unnecessary paperwork. All staff love our two-week October half-term and have access to free gym use (with shower facilities), ample on-site parking, an up-to-date 2-in-1 laptop (tablet with pen and laptop all in one), a full Microsoft Office package and a vibrant and social staff body.

Further details about the role

If you would like an informal phone call or a visit to the school with the Headteacher, we welcome and value this. To arrange, please contact head@esherhigh.surrey.sch.uk.

Commitment to safeguarding

Shortlisted candidates will be asked to complete a self-declaration of their criminal record or information that would make them unsuitable to work with children. This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. Please refer to the school website for further information regarding our Child Protection & Safeguarding policy. Any successful applicants will be required to undertake an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service.
