Are you an outstanding English teacher with a proven track record of raising achievement at years seven to thirteen looking to take the next step in your career?

We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated and well qualified Deputy Learning Director to help drive forward further improvements in both the quality of learning experiences for our students, and student outcomes.  Experience of teaching Key Stage 5 English Language or Literature would be an advantage.  Duties specific to the role will be negotiated with the successful candidate.  

Kingsthorpe College is an oversubscribed 11-18 Academy with 1296 students on roll (200+ students Post 16). This is an exciting time for the College and the Trust as we go from strength to strength - OFSTED Good 2015; Section 8 OFSTED Inspection September 2016 confirming previous high standards have been maintained; a positive Progress 8 score putting us in the top 25% of schools in England; and invited to become a Leading Edge school from April 2017 in recognition of our high performance.  We can offer a very good opportunity to develop your career within one of our most successful faculties working with a forward looking and very supportive team.

Why do we exist?

We exist because we believe we are the catalyst in students’ artistic, athletic and academic lives.  

How do we behave?

We behave with optimism, determination, thoughtfulness and clarity.

What do we do?

We provide character and currency for our students to achieve success.

How will we succeed?

We will differentiate ourselves by creating a healthy organization, making student-centric decisions, and giving students opportunities to develop resilience, perseverance and creativity, and be curious, kind, well-rounded individuals.

At KC, we don’t value what we measure, we measure what we value;  

for us, this is teamwork.
