What skills and experience we're looking for

  • Can you inspire young people through your own fascination with English?
  • Do you possess high emotional intelligence that builds lasting professional relationships?
  • Are you a team player ready to tackle the educational challenges of the future?

If the answers to these questions is ‘yes’, then Gildredge House wants to hear from you.

Within the English department, you will find a team who are dedicated to providing engaging, stimulating lessons to students of all abilities, and classrooms where rapport and relationships are given the highest priority. We plan with creativity and teach with enthusiasm, ensuring that every student reaches their full potential. We aim to help students develop resilience and confidence in the face of a challenging curriculum, not only to prepare them for demanding examinations but also to foster a lifelong love of reading, writing and thinking about books.
