Job summary

Temporary Full Time Teacher of English
to cover a maternity from 1st September 2021

Applicants should be able to offer the teaching of English to GCSE standard.

Endon High School is a high achieving school with excellent academic results and together we work exceptionally hard to attain the best possible results for every student.

The English Department enjoys high standards of success - and teaching throughout the department is lively and varied. We support our lower achieving pupils with the use of Inclusion Support Assistants and give intervention to students to increase their basic skills. KS4 pupils follow the Linear AQA English specification and Drama follow the AQA course also. A high proportion of pupils go on to study English or English based subjects at post 16. We try to ensure that every child leaves with a qualification in English. This is usually a GCSE, but for some pupils completing the entry level certificate alongside the GCSE may be appropriate.

About Endon High School

Our school is a relatively small 11-16 comprehensive on the outskirts of Stoke-on-Trent, located about half-way between the Potteries and the market town of Leek.
Our 700 pupils are representative of the area: some are from rural, farming families and others opt in from the nearby Stoke suburbs.

We are a true comprehensive, welcoming pupils from the full ability, social and economic ranges. We are also fully inclusive regarding pupils with physical disabilities, and are very aware that we all benefit from working together.

Endon High is significantly popular with parents who would like their children to enjoy the many positive features of our school. The school is fairly small in size, and for this reason every year large numbers of parents are disappointed in their hopes of a place here.

Our academic standards are generally high, comparing well with both national and county averages. However, we believe that education is not merely about examination results, and we are committed to a broad and balanced experience generally. We provide a rich range of residential activities, trips and visits, opportunities for performance through concerts and shows, for achievement through sport, and for citizenship through involvement in a wide range of community-based and service activities.

We strongly believe that the school is a community which succeeds through partnership between pupils, teachers and parents, and that the strength of our school lies in its staff - teaching and non-teaching - who are true professionals, and (what's more) seem positively to enjoy the company of the young people in our care!

We are proud of our pupils and are delighted to celebrate their successes and good qualities whenever possible: their strengths are the school's strengths.

We hope you enjoy looking at our web-site and finding out more about the work of the School.
