Our school is a thriving 11-16 foundation comprehensive which is committed to challenge for all and support when needed. We provide learning opportunities to allow everyone to develop their knowledge, skills and attitude so that they can become outstanding young adults. Our culture celebrates and rewards those high standards.
We require an enthusiastic, highly motivated and inspiring Head of English from September 2018.
Our English department is housed in a newly refurbished suite of nine teaching rooms, each with state of the art learning walls.
We recognise that the study of English requires that students see themselves as active participants in reading, understanding and creating. As such, the department offers pupils many opportunities to experience enrichment and extra-curricular activities.
We place huge value on staff CPD and invest to ensure required training is available. We are very proud that we have been particularly successful with middle leaders completing the NPQML and teaching leaders programme – with one colleague recently being awarded the teaching leaders special award.
