‘This is an outstanding school. Teachers have high expectations of their students, who respond by producing excellent work.’ (OFSTED, June 2015)

‘The behaviour of students is outstanding. They are exceptionally keen to learn, and show real enthusiasm in lessons.’ (OFSTED, June 2015)

Do you want to be part of a team where you will help make a lasting impact on our students, many of whom are disadvantaged, and rapidly accelerate their progress?

We seek to appoint an English tutor who can effectively support selected students between Year 7 to 11, through individually tailored programmes of 1-1 or small group tuition in English and/or reading intervention.

We welcome applications from people who:

  • Are experienced English private tutors; or
  • Hold qualified teacher status, or are a qualified HE or FE teacher; or
  • Are graduates who are not qualified teachers

For graduates who are not qualified teachers you would also have the opportunity to train to teach with us, if you wished to pursue a future career in teaching, as we are a National Teaching School.

Despite being a ‘secondary modern’ in a selective grammar school borough, our mind-set is that we are a ‘grammar school for all’. We are unapologetically ambitious for every child, no matter what their background, prior attainment or needs. Our goal is to prepare every student to be able to go to university or real alternative. We believe in the traditional values of hard work and kindness.

Our Academy is a vibrant and exciting place to work and was graded as outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in June 2015. In 2016, Magna achieved a Progress 8 score of 0.52, placing us well within the top 5% of highest performing schools nationally. In 2017, Magna achieved a Progress 8 score of 0.4, placing us in the top 15% nationally.

What we offer:

  • Great students who behave impeccably – you can make a massive difference to them
  • Collaborative planning with centralised, shared units of work and resources
  • Excellent ongoing CPD, career development and promotion opportunities

We actively welcome visits and would be delighted to show you around our Academy to fully appreciate our excellent learning environment.
