Applicants for this post should be proactive, well organised and keen to participate as a member of a team which relies on sharing innovative ideas.
The candidate should have good subject knowledge and a desire to bring their own plans and resources to bear in a lively classroom environment.
Our students follow the OCR GCSE English Literature and GCSE English Language specifications, with everyone in the cohort expected to gain both qualifications.
The summer 2022 cohort achieved 75% Grades 9 to 7 in GCSE English Literature, and 81% Grades 9 to 7 in GCSE English Language.
We also have an enthusiastic group of around thirty A Level (OCR) English Literature students; the summer 2022 A Level cohort achieved a 100% A* to A record.
We also maintain a number of other local and national partnerships, including projects with the BBC, the University of Aston, the English and Media Centre, RABBLE Theatre, Write Path and Igniting Writing, as well as networks with English and Literacy departments at schools in Reading, Wokingham, West Berkshire and Woking.
Department colleagues work very closely with our excellent Learning Resource Centre team to stage an annual Book Festival featuring visiting authors and workshops, and support a number of thriving student-led literary clubs (including The Wordsmiths Guild, a podcasting club and a poetry club).
We would love our new colleague to contribute to the extra-curricular provision we offer, and welcome them indulging their own interests and specialities.
This is a successful department (rated as Outstanding by OFSTED in their last subject specific visit), and have the capacity and flexibility to offer an exciting opportunity to an eager applicant.
