Teacher of English

Hummersknott AcademyDarlington


TEACHER OF ENGLISH (to commence as soon as possible)

Salary Negotiable (£25,714 - £41,604) 

We are looking for an exemplary teacher of English to match the aspirations of our students and to join an experienced and talented team. English is taught in sets at both key stages, although the Faculty believes that every student is entitled to access the same texts. Therefore, we are looking for a skilled practitioner who can make challenging texts accessible and engaging for all. The curriculum places literature and high-quality non-fiction at the heart of all our schemes of learning and, while these are established, we would welcome someone with fresh ideas and perspectives to add to our practice. At Key Stage 4, students take the AQA GCSE examinations and all students study both language and literature. 

Applications are welcome from those who can teach to both key stages and to all ability levels. Above all, we are looking for someone with a real passion for the subject, whose teaching is rooted in the joy of words and in the beauty of great writing; someone who is able to inspire students to share that joy; someone who can challenge every student to use great writing as models for their own pieces. 

The Academy has an excellent reputation within the local community with strong support from Governors, parents, students and highly motivated staff.

Phone the Academy on 01325 246473 or email jobapplications@hummersknott.org.uk for more information or to arrange a visit.

The Governing Body is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and expects all staff to share this commitment.  Any offer of employment will be subject to receipt of a satisfactory enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.

The Academy is committed to all aspects of personal development, is inclusive and seeks to ensure every individual achieves.
