Job summary

The English Department is an enthusiastic and committed team. We are collectively passionate and proud of what we do and the ways in which we inspire and nurture our learners across all key stages. Relationships between staff and students are strong and are the key to our success. We have a dedicated team spirit; we enjoy working together, helping each other and being part of Stantonbury School. The department are fully dedicated to building on present successes and strengths and always strive to provide the best quality teaching and learning experiences possible. We believe that through our skills-based approach to teaching, that students are able to demonstrate greater independence in their work.
Our vision for the study of English is to offer a broad and rich experience of Language and Literature, providing opportunities to explore an extensive range of texts from across a different times and cultural contexts. At Key Stage Three students follow an engaging curriculum which is rooted in literature and the joy of reading. At Key Stage Four
we currently follow the AQA specifications for English Language and Literature, encouraging students to acquire the expressive and analytical skills needed to provide them with meaningful opportunities beyond GCSE. We aim to educate students to be able to read critically, write clearly and inventively, think logically, and speak articulately about literature and language. In the Sixth Form, English Literature (AQA) is a popular choice for students with many going on to study the subject at degree level. Visits and extracurricular activities feature strongly in the department vision and enhance our curriculum.
We encourage all members of the department to continue their own professional development through regular CPD sessions, self-evaluation and opportunities to work collaboratively.
