Subject to a 6-Month Probationary Period

At Boston Spa Academy, we are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, dynamic and inspirational Teacher of English who specialises in teaching upper Key Stage 2 but would like the opportunity to work with and support students in a secondary school context. The successful candidate will join a thriving and highly successful curriculum area, which has made a major contribution to the strong examination results achieved throughout the academy.

This appointment is an extremely important one in supporting those students who join Boston Spa Academy in Year 7 with lower reading ages and literacy levels, who require bespoke support in the classroom to ensure they are secure in the specified areas of the KS2 National Curriculum and, as a result, have the foundations for success in KS3 and KS4. There would also be an opportunity for the successful candidate to provide similar support in mathematics.

This role represents an incredibly exciting opportunity for any candidate who is eager to be a part of an organisation that seeks to secure the very highest educational standard for every student. Our students receive exceptional pastoral care, support and guidance and we would expect any successful candidate to be of a mind-set where they believe anything is possible. Likewise, our professional body also benefits from outstanding CPD and support which is personalised to your particular needs and experience.
