We are looking for a passionate and motivated English specialist to teach English in our vibrant English and Communications Faculty.

English is a key department within the school and a popular choice at A level. It is a very well-resourced department, with excellent levels of collaboration between teachers. The English block has well-equipped teaching rooms, a creative space, and a library that has excellent links to the faculty. We also run many trips and projects that link with local schools and wider organisations. These include a debate club, mock trials, and a creative writing club; you will be joining a vibrant and creative team.

Our collaborative ethos of aspiration, passion and commitment are at the heart of Fitzharrys’ sustained success. We are a good school (Ofsted, June 2016) with strong results that improve year on year. Ofsted praised our “warm and welcoming culture with a shared drive for continual improvement”. This is a very special place, and we are looking for the right candidate who is excited at the prospect of joining us and taking such a key role in our continued success in English.

All Fitzharrys staff benefit from our induction programme and our comprehensive CPD programme as part of a school community committed to getting the best from everyone. Through our focus on high quality teaching and learning, and excellent behaviour, our school continues to grow and develop.

We are proud of our students, and in turn they are proud to be part of the Fitzharrys community. Parents are supportive of the work of the school, recognising our high aspirations for every student who attends; they are both challenged to achieve highly, and supported in doing so.

This is an exciting time to join us in our continued development. If you want to be part of a school with strong working relationships at the heart of every interaction, a committed and caring staff, and a culture of working to get the very best from every child, then we look forward to meeting you.
