“The school’s vision that ‘it is not enough for young people to be loved, they must know that they are loved’ permeates the school’s culture” Ofsted May 2017.

We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated and skilled Head of English to join this Catholic 11–18 comprehensive school judged “good” by Ofsted in May 2017 and by the Archdiocese of Southwark in 2014.   We are looking for a talented, highly-motivated teacher who can deliver high quality lessons consistently across KS3-KS5.  This post would be ideal for an outstanding English teacher looking to step up to Head of Department.

In return, we offer the opportunity to develop your career in a thriving school with excellent modern facilities for teaching languages.  The successful candidate will have the opportunity to develop their teaching and leadership skills through our excellent CPD programme and will have opportunities for career development within the school.  We are committed to reducing teacher workload and are currently changing school systems on assessment, homework and planning to ensure that staff time is spent effectively.  

St John Bosco College is located in the heart of Battersea, a short walk from Clapham Junction station and easily accessible by road and public transport. 

The successful candidate will:

  • Be able to teach English Language & Literature at KS3-5. 
  • Be able to lead English under the direction of a senior member of   staff and develop the subject across the school.
  • Be actively supportive of the Catholic values and beliefs of St John Bosco College and to make a positive contribution to the wider life of the school.

As a school we have worked hard to reduce teacher workload so that staff can focus on what is important, great teaching! 

Continual Professional Development

We place great value in developing our staff. We believe that effective CPD secures high standards of teaching. It ensures that your practice is fresh, up-to-date and stimulating. When your teaching has these qualities you are more likely to feel inspired, inspire others and teach more effectively, thus enabling our pupils to achieve their best.
