The school building itself is breath-taking. With amazing new learning spaces and a great support team, it all equals a truly uplifting and inspiring teaching environment – one that is now welcoming new teachers into the fold, thanks to the popularity of its offering and increased pupil numbers.

Their expert blend of therapeutic, emotional and educational support provides unmatched value for local authorities as they focus on each child, giving them stability and support they need.

The Role:

As an English Teacher, you won’t just be teaching our young people to read and write, you’ll be helping them learn to communicate better, while steering their moral and emotional development through engagement with the written word. This kind of learning doesn’t end when the bell goes – it’s something they’ll carry with them from lesson to lesson and throughout life. Keeping subjects relevant and making them matter to our young people is a big part of the groups philosophy. By joining the English department, you’ll be putting your passion into practice and using your own personal flair to make sure we reflect this idea in everything we do.
  • You’ll be working with young people until the end of Key Stage 4. It will be challenging and rewarding in equal measure, but whether you’ve given a particularly inspiring lesson or helped a pupil with a presentation or exam arrangements, you can expect to take home a sense of having done something amazing every single day. As all teachers know, some of those days may be harder than others but, you’re never alone. You’ll work as part of a collaborative team, not just with other teachers across the school and Group but with our in-house psychologists, family liaison officers and therapy professionals. All pulling together to create the best possible outcomes for our pupils."

The Successful Candidate:
