Cottenham Village College is on a journey to become an outstanding school where learning is at the heart of everything we do.  We require highly skilled professionals who are able to plan effective lessons that allow pupils to achieve the very best outcome and be well prepared for society.  In return, we offer high quality professional learning, committed students who behave exceptionally well and strong leadership.

The English faculty is driven by the conviction that students are entitled to know and read great works of literature. We are proud to offer our students access to powerful knowledge, and at the heart of this lies our five-year curriculum: knowledge that enables access to complex texts and develops cultural literacy. In the English faculty subject knowledge is celebrated, and teachers strive to develop it further. Alongside this, curricular thought and a research-informed approach are valued, as we continue to develop a curriculum for our students that challenges them to think and to learn, and establishes high expectations for all. We wish to appoint an English teacher with strong subject knowledge who can contribute to the continuing successes of the faculty.

Cottenham Village College sits in the top 4% of schools nationally and has excellent facilities which are well resourced.
