Teacher of English
Required for January 2019 (Earlier if possible)
Carlton Bolling is an Outstanding school which has been on a rapid improvement journey over recent years, with results in 2017 within the top 5% of schools nationally. This progress was recognised by Ofsted who praised the “Highly aspirational vision for the school”.
Staff enjoy working at Carlton Bolling and are supported and encouraged to lead and develop practice “Pupils and staff are enthused and excited to excel. Pupils and staff work together within a harmonious community, where they are fully supported”: Ofsted, November 2017.
Although we are rated Outstanding, we are still moving forward at the same trajectory on our path to become one of the top 1% of schools in the country. If you share this vision, and are prepared to put in the effort to attain this goal, we would like to hear from you.
English is very well resourced at Carlton Bolling, reflecting the subjects’ importance to school results and the life chances of students. Class sizes average 15 across all year groups, whilst staff are supported with the best resources and training within and out of school to ensure that they are able to achieve the highest standards. There are many opportunities for progression within the faculty to ensure that careers can be developed and staff are suitably rewarded for their hard work. Our current Progress 8 measure for English is +0.26, and we hope to improve upon this in 2018 – our target being +0.6.
The successful candidate will be committed to build on the successes of recent years whilst enhancing our curriculum offer, and will be joining a faculty which has a dedicated English team who are hardworking and enthusiastic.
We are seeking to appoint:
• A like-minded colleague who will motivate and excite young people
• A candidate with the potential to inspire, support and motivate colleagues in raising attainment
• A teacher open to coaching and development in order to progress their career and practice
This exciting opportunity will enable the successful candidate to develop an excellent foundation for future leadership roles.
