What skills and experience we're looking for

We are keen to appoint a highly motivated, well-qualified and inspirational English teacher. The successful candidate should have the ability to deliver English at KS3 and KS4. This role may be of particular interest to an ECT, looking for a welcoming, stable school in which to begin their career.

With the expansion of our 6th Form the successful candidate may have the opportunity to teach up to KS5 and there may also be the opportunity to teach in our ARC provision, delivering engaging and personalised English lessons for children with Autism.

We are looking for a colleague who:

  • is passionate about developing independent, confident learners
  • is committed to inclusive education
  • can sustain high quality teaching and learning
  • demonstrates energy, creativity and commitment
  • is willing to actively contribute to all aspects of school life

What the school offers its staff

Alderbrook is acknowledged, both locally and nationally, as a high-performing school. In recent years, The SSAT has recognised Alderbrook as being in the top 10% of schools nationally for Value Added Progress and results have remained very strong, particularly in the Core subjects.

Surprisingly however, we pride ourselves in being about so much more than outstanding results. We are a community in every sense of the word.

We are proud to offer:

  • interesting, engaging, enthusiastic students who want to learn
  • a supportive and inclusive staff and governing body
  • a hugely successful, ambitious school - determined to build on the standards we currently achieve
  • consistently high GCSE results
  • a proven track record in - and full commitment to - the professional development of colleagues
  • a well-resourced school with extensive grounds
  • a long established record of low staff turnover. What does that tell you?

Commitment to safeguarding

The school is committed to the safeguarding and welfare of young people. Any successful applicant will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS.
