What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding, innovative and inspirational teacher with the passion and enthusiasm to fulfil a key role in the school as a Teacher of English.

This post would suit somebody looking for their first teaching role, or someone with more experience, who would like to work in a thriving curriculum area. The key is that you are enthusiastic and capable of contributing to a highly effective and supportive teaching team. There is flexibility available with this role to be discussed at interview.

What the school offers its staff

Weydon School is a large, ambitious and outstanding school in an unspoilt area of Surrey within easy reach of London. We are the Lead School for the Weydon Multi Academy Trust, comprising of ourselves, Woolmer Hill School, The Ridgeway School, The Abbey School, Rodborough, Park and Farnham Heath End School. The close proximity of these schools allows lots of opportunities for staff collaboration.

The Times frequently rates Weydon School in the top 10 across the UK for 11-16 schools, and achievements in the curriculum area are exceptional. It has been said that we have grammar school outcomes and independent sector facilities; our ongoing and recent successes clearly demonstrate this.

In September 2016, the curriculum area moved into “The Globe”, a new multi-million-pound building complex, with every classroom in close proximity to the Learning Resource Centre.

Colleagues and the leadership team are highly supportive. Students are respectful and responsive, and are proud to uphold the strong values of the school. If you join us, you will benefit from our extensive CPD programme organised in conjunction with our teaching school.

The curriculum area is a very strong and well-led team of specialist English teachers, who revel in the world of Literature and Language and generate outstanding results.

  • Fantastic facilities
  • Attractive pay scales
  • Incredible benefits
  • Supportive colleagues
  • Excellent in-house CPD
  • Career progression
