“The Radcliffe School is a Good School” – Ofsted, 2020

We are looking to welcome a dedicated and engaging teacher to our English department, from January 2025 or sooner, as we work to achieve and surpass the objectives outlined in our vision: supporting learners as they seek to develop an empowering knowledge of English.

The successful candidate will also have access to a full range of courses both in-house and professionally accredited, including all of the National Professional Qualifications eg NPQLTD.

In the Radcliffe English department, we have worked hard to develop a sequenced curriculum that challenges and supports students to consider broader patterns behind different forms of spoken and written communication. We are interested in archetypal narratives and what they can teach us in the 21st Century, as well as in the journey of vocabulary, story and rhetoric over time.

In 2020, The Radcliffe School was judged to be a ‘Good’ school by Ofsted. In the English Department, we are working to build on that judgement by strategically planning learning opportunities and by consolidating our practice in terms of timely and effective use of all types of assessment.

The successful candidate will be collaborative and keen to contribute to a team of colleagues who value and welcome new ideas; regularly evaluate team successes and challenge each other to continue improving. They will crucially provide a friendly and supportive presence for a diverse cohort of students who are keen to learn and to be shown the magic of English.

This position would suit an experienced teacher or an Early Careers Teacher who is keen to start their career in a friendly and supportive school. We have extensive experience of providing excellent mentoring and support to new staff.

We are an iPad school with all staff and students receiving an iPad (along with regular CPD on how to use it) to support teaching and learning.

We can offer onsite accommodation for new staff in one of our two houses. Each house is semi-detached with three bedrooms and a large garden. Please enquire for more information.

This is a unique opportunity to take on an exciting role in a forward-thinking school and to work with committed and collaborative staff. The ideal candidate will be passionate about teaching and learning and will have the ability to motivate students. They will be happy to work in support of a large and friendly team.

The Radcliffe School offers the opportunity to:

  • Work with a Department that is passionate about achievement for all pupils.
  • Work with fantastic students who enjoy a dynamic and engaging curriculum.
  • Operate within a diligent team of excellent teachers who have a wealth of expertise and experience.
  • Teach, research, develop and examine at GCSE and A Level.
  • Work with a driven and inspirational department in pursuit of excellence.
  • Be part of a strong induction programme tailored to your experience and needs.
  • Contribute to high quality teaching and learning, and the provision of extracurricular activities to drive students forward.
  • Collaborate within a very supportive environment where professional development is an essential aspect of our daily practice.
  • Develop your career.
  • Contribute to the creation of outstanding student experiences in learning for all.

If you believe that you have the energy, passion, resilience and drive to be part of our positive journey we would love to have you on our team. Visits to the School are welcomed and encouraged.

Please contact Jo Moloney, HR Manager, on 01908 682 289 or go to www.radcliffeschool.org.uk for more information about the post and an application form.

The deadline for applications is 9am on Thursday 27th June 2024. Please note that the advert may be closed as soon as sufficient applications have been received.
