Our intake is expanding, and we want you to grow with us and join our dedicated team in providing the very best outcomes for our students. We are seeking to recruit a teacher who will demonstrate commitment to our “Ambition for All” values by inspiring all students to achieve, strengthening an already excellent department within a STEM orientated school. This is an excellent opportunity to influence the future direction of the RE provision within our over-subscribed school in the heart of Corby.

Providing high standards of teaching and learning, using your up-to-date knowledge, skills and expertise you will work within the guidance of all Trust policies and procedures as set out.

Subject to relevant experience, the successful candidate will be responsible for assisting the Head of Department in strategically leading and delivering the curriculum and will have shared responsibility for the overall effectiveness in providing the highest quality of RE education for all our students in our outstanding school.

Our CPD programme focuses on sharing time with your line manager, reflecting on best practice with a focus on the Rosenshine principles. The school culture is centred upon life-long learning and ambition for all. You will be given all the freedom you need to be creative, and you will be working with students who have chosen to be at a successful school. We can offer you the next step in your career and give you the opportunity to be both developed and challenged, whether you are an NQT or a more experienced practitioner. This position is for a September 2021 start.
