Are you a primary specialist eager to expand your expertise to include Key Stage 3, or a secondary teacher with a passion for developing literacy skills and looking for a role with the opportunity to specialise in English in Year 7 and 8? We are looking to build capacity in our team by recruiting an individual who can facilitate the all-important transition from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 3 to support students to meet Age Related Expectations. We can offer the right candidate the opportunity to teach a reduced timetable focussing solely on supporting students to access the curriculum by removing literacy-based barriers.

We invite you to visit the school so that you can see for yourself how amazing our school community is and gain a clear picture of our journey and the bright future of Sir Thomas Wharton Academy.

We are seeking to appoint a Teacher of English to add to our fully staffed department due to increasing numbers, who will support the department to continue to achieve excellent outcomes for our students. We are looking for someone who will possess the key knowledge, attributes and skills to deliver engaging and informative lessons that motivate and enthuse the students at Sir Thomas Wharton Academy to invest in their learning.
