Teacher of English
MPS / UPR
Full Time or Flexible Working Options available
Due to the growing popularity of the academy and a rapid growth in student numbers, we are seeking to appoint a committed and dynamic teacher of English to join our team.
We are a successful 11-19 stand-alone academy where our school community benefits from excellent facilities in our modern and purpose-built school. We are looking for candidates who share our commitment and determination to providing a learning environment that enables all young people to thrive. This post could suit an ECT as well as a more experienced applicant.
Our most recent OFSTED inspection (May 2018) saw the academy judged as ‘Good’ with many outstanding features.
We offer extensive professional development opportunities with a structured path to enable progression at every stage of your career. This includes leadership training, secondments at other schools, coaching and mentoring. We also support our staff undertaking NPQ’s. We are proud to be a “Brilliant School” and have recently been awarded the Wellbeing Award for Schools. Our succession planning strategy seeks to provide a variety of leadership opportunities from temporary projects to secondments. We have some exciting opportunities arising to start in September which the successful candidate could apply for.
The successful candidate will join a hardworking, forward thinking and supportive department.
This is an exciting time to join the Academy with a number of significant changes planned for the near future that will support our move towards excellence. With the expansion of our T-Level offering we look forward to breaking ground on our anticipated state of the art building following investment from the Department of Education. The Academy also has an off-site alternate provision centre at the beautiful Idle Valley Nature reserve which could provide the successful candidate with an exciting opportunity to be involved in something a little bit different.
Our ideal candidate will:
- embrace our ethos and passion for our 3 R’s of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience.
- be excited about teaching English and committed to achieving excellent results for their students.
- demonstrate high levels of ambition and optimism regarding what the academy and every single student can achieve.
- have the resolve to make a real difference to the lives of pupils, be that as Form Tutor, through extra-curricular activities or leading an enrichment session on a more unique topic which ignites your passion.
An interest in developing debating and public speaking across the school would be an advantage but is not essential.
The Academy is committed to equality of experience for all staff and students. We operate safer recruitment, robust child protection procedures and require evidence of DBS clearance for all employees. Checks will also be made with previous employers. Please read our Information for Candidates for additional information.
Please apply by sending your completed application and cover letter to HR Manager, Helen Upson by post or email at email@example.com You can contact Helen with any queries or for application assistance by email or on the telephone - 01777 713705. Visits to our Academy are warmly welcomed by appointment.
