What the school offers its staff

The Holgate Academy are seeking a Teacher of English with a commitment to academic excellence and helping every learner succeed to teach across Key Stage 3 and 4, and to deliver innovative lessons which engage and challenge students to achieve their full potential.

The English department at Holgate is very strong team compromising of individuals that have a range of different experiences.We have members of the team that have worked in the academy for over twenty years, staff that are currently going through the ECT process and a large number somewhere in between.We work closely with ITT providers to support people in the early years of training too.

We are a team of teachers passionate about providing students with the opportunities to explore texts from a variety of different writers, backgrounds and experiences.Cultural capital is at the heart of our curriculum model.It is designed to support their knowledge and understanding of the world around them as well as encourage healthy and lively debates about topics that matter to them.

Each topic in key stage 3 ensures that students are exposed to religious, social, cultural and historical fiction and non-fiction texts and we offer a range of opportunities to reflect upon the knowledge discovered, debate current affairs and develop a personal response as a result. The curriculum is planned sequentially to build skills and knowledge in preparation for the demands of key stage 4.

There is an expectation that the successful applicant may be required to teach a small proportion of Film Studies, along side English.

This post would suit either a new entrant to the profession or an experienced teacher.We would welcome a teacher returning to work after a career break and will consider part time or flexible working where possible.
