Farringdon Community Academy is an aspirational, inclusive and inspiring 11-16 school community which values the individuality of all students and staff. We live our values of ‘Excellence Through Endeavour’ in all that we say and do. We value all of our students equally and ensure that their opportunities and experiences reflect this. We believe every child can achieve and should be supported and challenged to fulfil both their personal and academic potential.
We are currently the most improved school in Sunderland with an increase of 10% of students achieving a 5+ in English and Maths. We are looking forward to building on these results this academic year with our new Year 11 cohort. It is an exciting time to work at Farringdon Community Academy.
An exciting career development opportunity has arisen within our successful and dynamic English team. The advertised role will be a permanent ASTL and will be an opportunity for the successful candidate to help drive the department forward and further improve standards and achievement across both key stages. Therefore, we are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, talented and forward-thinking English teacher with the experience required to assist in leading a team of experienced and committed staff, oversee the curriculum and delivery in KS3 and teach students at both KS3 and KS4 level. The successful candidate will have a proven track record of success and will have the ability to motivate and inspire both staff and students to achieve beyond what they thought was possible.
