Small enough to care, big enough to make a positive impact

As a 13-18 school in south east Northumberland with good standards of teaching and behaviour and a strong commitment to improvement, we believe passionately that every student should be enabled to succeed in all aspects of school life. Building on our recent ‘Good’ rating by Ofsted, we continue to strive for further improvements.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic French teacher to join the school to focus on delivery throughout Years 9-13 and make a positive contribution to results at both GCSE and A Level. With a strong sense of purpose and drive to improve student attainment and progress, you will join a small but committed team who strive to build a vibrant and outstanding department. You will be supported to further develop your career and professional practice.

Behaviour and attitudes to learning are good throughout the school, and we need a highly motivated individual who can enable students to exceed their expectations and have high aspirations for their futures.

You will be required to teach mainly at Astley Community High School, although there maybe some requirement to teach or share knowledge with staff to deliver across Key Stage 2 and 3 in Whytrig Middle School in the future, both schools share an Executive Headteacher and the same site. If you were also able to teach a second language we would also be very interested in hearing from you.

Visits to the school are also warmly welcomed and encouraged. Please contact Graham Scott, Head of School – Astley Community High School on 0191 2371505 to make an appointment.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. It is essential that all staff and volunteers share this commitment. An enhanced criminal records check from the Disclosure and Barring Service is required for all posts.

Interested in applying? A completed application form and criminal records declaration form must be submitted by 12 noon on Friday 21 February by e-mail to svfjobs@svlp.org.uk. It is expected that interviews will be held on Friday 6 March 2020
