What skills and experience we're looking for

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is passionate about their subject and passionate about teaching. This post would suit someone who is an Early Careers Teacher or within their first few years of teaching.

Previous applicants are welcome to apply.

We seek an enthusiastic and committed teacher of English with the ability to deliver effective teaching and learning at Key Stages 3 and 4 across all areas. You will need to be a practitioner who consistently delivers high quality teaching with the ability to inspire, engage and motivate students. You will also need have excellent communication skills, be ambitious and be a strong team player and above all else, you will need to be Dedicated to Excellence in all that you do.

Up Holland High School is a happy and harmonious place to be where students are highly-motivated and have the opportunity to be inspired and succeed. We were recognised in May 2023 by Ofsted as ‘Good’ in all areas of school, with the capacity to improve still further. We believe that our strong collaboration with students, staff, parent/carers and governors continues to contribute towards the success of the school. This is the third successive ‘Good’ judgment the school has secured. The school aspires to move from ‘Good’ to ‘Great’ and we are seeking a professional that shares that level of ambition, a professional that can model our Dedication to Excellence in all that they do.

What the school offers its staff

If appointed you can expect full-support and continuing professional development, as we promote a model of leadership at all levels and a bespoke and tailored CPD programme. We offer a professionally stimulating working environment where teachers have the opportunity to progress and most critically to positively impact on the lives of our students.
