Teacher of English Hartshill School, Nuneaton, Warwickshire

Job description

The Midland Academies Trust have an opportunity for a colleague who wishes to join a strong subject community within a knowledge focused trust by appointing a Teacher of English for Hartshill School

The Midland Academies Trust is a close-knit family of schools where we believe that our staff are our greatest resource. Everything we do as a Trust has to fulfil the twin aims of accelerating student progress and reducing staff workload – if it doesn’t achieve both we simply don’t do it

We want it to be easy for our staff to help students achieve well and be prepared for a successful future. That’s why we continually review how we work and actively promote teachers as experts in their classrooms; provide a curriculum which is rich and deep in knowledge and work within a network of schools committed to using and sharing research led practice. We believe in strong subject communities working together to reduce individual staff workload

By joining the English team at Hartshill School, you will not only become part of a friendly and supportive faculty, but will also join our extended subject community across the Trust. This provides unique benefits for professional development and support at subject level. English staff across the Trust participate in, and contribute to, regular subject-specific professional development sessions. The English curriculum was written and resourced by the entire subject community, and as a member of the wider team you will participate in ongoing curriculum development.
