English Teacher

Wellington CollegeBracknell Forest

Wellington College is one of the world’s leading co-educational boarding and day schools and has an enviable reputation for excellence and innovation. We are currently looking for a self-motivated and inspiring English Teacher to join us.

The English Department is one of the largest and most successful at Wellington. Our team of highly committed teachers strive for excellence, enjoy a range of traditional and progressive methodology and make a real contribution to the academic life of the College. Join us, and, in addition to delivering inspirational and informative lessons to the full age and ability range of pupils, you will be able to contribute fully to the success of the department too. 

As well as teaching a standard timetable allocation (currently around 36 lessons of 55 minutes in a twelve day timetable cycle) we will rely on you to participate in off-timetable workshops, extension programmes, pre-university seminars, competitions, student support, and so on. Marking examinations, attending departmental meetings and undertaking administrative and other tasks as delegated by the Head of Department – all are aspects of a role that will see you enhance the quality of teaching and learning and play an active part in the extra-curricular and pastoral life of the College.

To succeed, you will need a good level degree in a directly related subject and thorough knowledge of the subject curriculum across the full 13-18 age range. Well-organised, energetic and self-motivated, you have a sharp and progressive vision of the subject and a proven ability to quickly build a positive rapport with pupils. What’s more, you are a dedicated team player who is smart and professional in appearance, strives for excellence, committed to boarding school life and willing to get involved in extra-curricular activities like sports and school trips. In short, you have what it takes to fulfil the teaching requirements, as well as the overall aims of the school. 

Not only is this an excellent career development opportunity, it comes with a generous salary and benefits package too. So, if you are enthusiastic, ambitious and keen to develop professionally in a high achieving environment, apply today.

Interviews will take place w/c 7 June 2021
