English Teacher

Bishop Wordsworth's SchoolWiltshire

This is an exciting opportunity to follow in the footsteps of former teacher, novelist and Nobel Prize winner, Sir William Golding and to join our popular and successful English faculty.  Our outstanding examination results across GCSE and A-level reflect an engaging curriculum experience and a commitment to high quality teaching for all students to enable them to reach their potential.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and energising full time English teacher (NQT or experienced) with a real drive and enthusiasm for the subject, together with the motivation and subject knowledge to be able to challenge and inspire. The successful candidate must be a team player and will be expected to take an active involvement in the department and in school life in general. The ability to teach English up to KS5 is essential. You will be teaching in an environment where the pupils are actively engaged, want to learn and where there is minimum disruption in lessons.

Bishop Wordsworth’s School is a unique school in a unique place where we fuel pupils’ wider intellectual curiosity, extending their knowledge and understanding beyond the narrow confines of exam syllabi. We aim to engender a passion for learning together with the skills required to pursue that passion independently. 

We will offer you:

• The support of a highly experienced friendly team
