We are seeking to appoint three outstanding teachers to join the English faculty to deliver high quality lessons across the Key Stages from September 2022. If you are an excellent classroom practitioner, who is flexible, dedicated and passionate about delivering exceptional learning experiences, then we want to hear from you.

This is an exciting time to be joining our Academy as we seek additional teachers to meet rapidly increasing student numbers. Within the Academy two capital projects costing in excess of £4 million pounds have just been completed. The Academy has also recently undergone a superb transformation in September 2019 to facilitate students in years 7 to 11 across two sites.

The English faculty is a friendly and innovative team and the successful candidates will have the capacity to be both an outstanding English teacher and an enthusiastic and dynamic team member. Our faculty enjoys excellent facilities, including a fully equipped media studio, and provides its staff with a supportive, forward thinking environment with plenty of opportunities for professional development. These range from our extensive ECT programme through to leadership progression opportunities within Paignton and
across the Trust.

The successful candidates will be confident teaching English from Key Stage 3 to GCSE and have a high level of subject expertise. They will work alongside other English staff to plan, develop and deliver an engaging curriculum that achieves the best possible outcomes for all students
