What skills and experience we're looking for

Prospective candidates will be motivated, hard-working and passionate about their subject.

We aim for our students to develop critical awareness, the ability to craft their writing, an appreciation of literature, and the confidence to articulate their ideas in order to serve them in their academic, professional and personal lives during and beyond their time at Sprowston Community Academy.

The Department is a forward thinking, supportive and creative team who are making a difference in improving the outcomes of all our students. We are looking for someone who will demonstrate the willingness and drive to make a significant contribution to the English curriculum, and to the Academy.
