Teacher of English (Maternity cover) job summary

We are currently looking to appoint a passionate and motivated English specialist to teach English in our vibrant English and Communications Faculty. The school is rated ‘good’ by Ofsted following an inspection in April 2023. We continue to strive for excellence, both academically and personally, for our children and young people.

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, and a library that has excellent links to the faculty. We also run many trips and projects that connect us with local schools and wider organisations. These include a Carnegie shadowing scheme, mock trials, and the Oxfordshire Academy of Broadcast Journalism; you will be joining an enthusiastic and creative team.

Fitzharrys is a school which is growing and developing rapidly. Our ethos of Aspiration, Opportunity, and Integrity are being utilised by staff and students to enhance the education we deliver. This is an exciting time to join our Trust, with the opportunity to further drive forward standards at Fitzharrys. The role offers the successful candidate a supportive and collegiate culture, ambitious professional development, and the opportunity to make a difference for the Abingdon community. 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.

Staff wellbeing is noticeably valued at Fitzharrys School, as part of the Abingdon Learning Trust we have our Workload and Well-being Charter. The Trust is pro-active in supporting staff to maintain the purposeful behaviour of students in class.

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 are committed to working with us and helping our pupils and students realise their potential, we encourage you to apply.
