September 2019

The governors are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and effective Leader of English, who can share their enthusiasm and expertise with our success-hungry students and work with our dedicated team of English teachers in their pursuit of excellence. If you can combine va-va-voom in the classroom with relentless optimism in the staff room you will find the perfect home in the English Department at Shirebrook Academy.  

We were inspected in March 2013 and were graded as ‘outstanding’ in every category.  We moved in to purpose built ‘State of the Art’ buildings in April 2013. 

On 1st May 2017 we joined ACET (Aston Community Education Trust) which further strengthens our capacity to improve opportunities for all our students and staff.

You will head a department of nine staff.  We are looking for a person with the drive, creativity and vision to be able to give clear direction to this area within the Academy and to be able to motivate students to be the best that they can be.

This is an exciting opportunity for a successful experienced professional with Middle Leadership experience including a proven track record in raising standards within English. 

According to an African proverb, ‘it takes a whole village to raise a child’. Similarly, it takes a whole school to educate a child with everyone in the school community playing a vital role.  Educating a child is a collective endeavour, at Shirebrook Academy we stand and fall as a team, we celebrate each other’s success and we take collective responsibility and support each other when we fail.

This Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  We are also an equal opportunities Employer.
