“The school’s vision that ‘it is not enough for young people to be loved, they must know that they are loved’ permeates the school’s culture” Ofsted May 2017.
The Governors are seeking to appoint a highly motivated and skilled English teacher to join this Catholic 11-18 comprehensive school judged “good” by Ofsted in May 2017 and by the Archdiocese of Southwark in 2014.
It is an exciting time to join St John Bosco College as we continue our journey towards being an outstanding school, now that we are fully settled into our state-of-the-art building in the heart of Battersea. Our success can be credited to our committed and dedicated staff who strive for excellence and promote high aspirations throughout the school. The successful candidate will receive a full programme of CPD and have opportunities for career development within the school.
We are seeking a talented individual to deliver high quality English lessons consistently across KS3-KS4, and to have the capacity to deliver English at A Level in the future. The successful candidate will also be expected to provide excellent pastoral care to all students.
The successful candidate will:
- Be able to teach English at KS3-5 and have the potential to teach Media Studies at KS4-5.
- Be actively supportive of the Catholic values and beliefs of St John Bosco College and to make a positive contribution to the wider life of the school.
As a school we have worked hard to reduce teacher workload so that staff can focus on what is important, great teaching!
Continual Professional Development
We place great value in developing our staff. We believe that effective CPD secures high standards of teaching. It ensures that your practice is fresh, up-to-date and stimulating. When your teaching has these qualities you are more likely to feel inspired, inspire others and teach more effectively, thus enabling our pupils to achieve their best.
