What skills and experience we're looking for
Our ideal candidate will be passionate about the power of education to improve the life chances of young people and a committed team player who is driven to raising attainment.

However, we warmly invite applications from less experienced teachers who are interested in teaching at A level with training and support.
What the school offers its staff
The successful candidate will be joining a supportive faculty which consists of subject specialists who are enthusiastic, dynamic and inspirational teachers of English. You will be able to use your talents to help make a difference to the lives and aspirations of our students.
Our vision statement 'learning together for the future' is evident throughout the school. There is a focused atmosphere that is conducive to excellent learning, an engaging and broad curriculum and an extensive range of enrichment activities. As a result our students are well behaved, highly motivated and achieve high academic standards.
We are student-centred and our aim is for every student to experience first rate learning and teaching. The school motto of 'Integrity, tenacity and service' is at the core of school life.
What our staff say:
"During my first term at Ecclesbourne I have felt extremely welcomed by staff and students alike. The school have been beyond supportive and encourage me to be the best teacher I can possibly be. Ecclesbourne inspires pride in its students through presentation, attitude and extra-curricular events. I have never known a school take so much delight in organised student-centred activities that, ultimately, boost the students' ideologies. I have thoroughly enjoyed my first term at Ecclesbourne and I hope that it will be the first of many in an enjoyable career."
The reward for working at Ecclesbourne is more than financial and we give back to our staff in terms of wellbeing, training and support. In addition, children of members of staff with a minimum of two years’ service at the school at the time of application are included in our admissions criteria.

The Ecclesbourne School aims to provide a first class education in a happy, well-ordered and purposeful atmosphere. We are a non-selective school and committed to an inclusive community ethos. We challenge all our learners to achieve their best. The school is set in the village of Duffield, in the Amber Valley district of Derbyshire. It is centred on the western bank of the River Derwent at the mouth of the River Ecclesbourne. Duffield is within the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Area and its elevated surroundings are the southern foothills of the Pennines. The school’s sporting facilities include an all weather surface, grass football, rugby and hockey pitches, netball courts, tennis courts, a large sports hall, a sprung floor dance studio and a fully equipped fitness suite. Our English block contains twelve state of the art classrooms along with a theatre with tiered seating for up to 240. Our Sixth Form Centre is a place of relaxation and study, with classrooms, a communal area, a deli bar and access to pastoral support. High quality modern IT facilities exist throughout the school. All main teaching rooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards. Wherever you are on our site you will find well maintained buildings full of happy students. We believe that our students are all equally important. We encourage them to welcome and celebrate their inherent differences and we operate a fully inclusive system designed to ensure all our students achieve their full potential. We encourage students to value each other and the relationships they make. We have very high expectations and we challenge every member of our school community to raise their aspirations and develop the confidence to reach for the stars. We are dedicated to improve continually the quality of education we provide. If you join us we expect you to take a full part in the life and work of the school, to meet the challenges that we offer and to endeavor to become an active member of our school community. The School’s motto, “Integrity, Tenacity, Service”, is as significant now as it was when the School opened its doors in 1957. We employ a wide range of talented, well-qualified people capable of delivering a high standard of education and support for our students. You must be passionate about the power of education to improve the quality of life and the life chances of young people, driven to achieve better results through determination and commitment and motivated to work in partnership with everyone in the School. All staff are given the opportunity to access the training and support they need. Our commitment to equality and diversity: As a school we are passionate about diversity and recognize that as individuals we all bring something unique to the role regardless of any protected characteristics which is why we treat all of our people equally, without compromise. We are committed to providing equality and fairness throughout our recruitment and employment practices and not discriminating on any grounds.
