About The Suthers School

The Suthers School is a brand new 11-18 Free School which welcomed its first cohort of students in September 2017. We have recently moved to a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility in Fernwood, Newark, and are now seeking to appoint a well-qualified Teacher of English to join our team and therefore play a critical role in supporting us in our mission to deliver a first-class education to all students. There is scope for a suitably qualified candidate to take on additional leadership responsibilities.

By striking a balance between challenge and support and by ranking character education alongside academic preparation, The Suthers School seeks to provide the very best foundation for all its students, no matter what their starting point. If you too are driven by the desire to give every child the ambition to succeed and equip them with the skills they need to take their place as the leaders of tomorrow, then we would love to hear from you.

Above all, we are looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic and well-qualified teacher who has proven expertise in teaching English and shares our passion for ensuring that the needs of all learners are met.
