Our overall aim is to develop confident, eager and independent learners, who are able to communicate clearly.
The English teaching requirements are for one class in Year 8, one in Year 9 and a GCSE Year 10 group. The successful candidate will need to be able to stretch and challenge higher ability groups while also being able to support pupils who need additional help accessing the curriculum.
The teaching in RE is a standalone teaching role that covers lessons at Key Stage 3. The successful candidate will be responsible for delivering the schemes of work in line with the College’s policies and the assessing, tracking and monitoring of pupils at regular intervals. Through the delivery of RE, our aim is to foster secure critical thinking skills and enable pupils to consider and respond to a range of important questions related to their own spiritual development, the development of values and attitudes and fundamental questions concerning the meaning and purpose of life.
This role is required to cover 12 English lessons and 9 RE lessons.
