Start Date: September 2021
Contract Type: Full-time
Contract Term: Permanent (n.b. there is also a maternity cover position available as well
as this permanent post)
Lymm High School is a well-established, 11-18 school with over 1950 students (400 in the 6th form) and exceptional resources, including 28 acres of beautiful grounds, a swimming pool, leisure complex and our own residential centre in Anglesey. Rapid and sustained improvement in recent years led to a Progress 8 score of 0.56 in 2019, with 9-4 and 9-5 basics measures at 70% and 90% respectively. It is also a lovely place in which to work; in addition to our good fortune with our physical surroundings, staff are exceptionally positive, committed and supportive.
The English faculty are a strong and supportive team who enjoy one another’s company. They are also firmly on an upwards trajectory and it would be an exciting time to join them. English results in 2019 were very good (P8 score of 0.3; 95% grades 9-4; 81% 9-5 and 29% 9-7) and we are confident they would have been higher still over the last couple of years. The improvement in recent years is no accident; it has come about through strong faculty leadership and a willingness on the part of teachers to engage with an agenda built around delivering a rigorous, inspiring and ‘word-rich’ curriculum to all students.
We offer English Language, English Literature and Media Studies at A’ level and always have healthy numbers opting for all three subjects.
We would be delighted to receive applications from NQTs as well as more experienced teachers; it is your values, commitment and potential that we are most interested in. We pride ourselves on providing lots of support and plenty of opportunities for professional development for colleagues at all stages of their career.
