If you are in education because you want to make a difference to children’s lives, hopes and aspirations, then Beaumont Leys is the school for you!

Beaumont Leys is a highly successful secondary school consistently rated as Good by Ofsted. We have a Progress 8 figure of 0.23 in 2017 placing us in the top third of Leicester schools, Leicestershire schools and the country as a whole. 

Housed in a vibrant and colourful new build designed to replicate our inclusive and positive ethos, Beaumont Leys boasts fantastic facilities and a well utilised sports hall and fitness suite available to all staff.  We consider our catering to be the best with regular staff breakfasts or hand-carved roasts. Our dining room is a wonderful place for staff to eat and catch-up and we even have a Cappuccino machine!! 

The English Faculty at Beaumont Leys School has got an excellent reputation for getting the best out of our students and our staff. We are a very friendly and supportive department who try very hard to make all our staff feel valued and supported; a sense of humour is essential. 

English is a real strength within our school.  Currently, we teach the AQA syllabus for English Language and Literature and all students complete both GCSEs. We are very pleased with our GCSE results last year, with 74% of students achieving 4+ in either English Language or Literature. We are very proud of our positive P8 result in English which, last year, placed us far above National Average. 

We believe in the power of our staff. We believe in ‘going the extra mile’ to help support students and staff. We work hard to recruit the best and then we support them to be even better.  Our internal promotion record is impressive, even our Head Teacher started with us as a NQT.  We engage extensively with local ITT providers, including Teach First and Researchers into School, provide an excellent NQT support programme and run our own internal BLOTS programme for potential Beaumont Leys Outstanding Teachers.  Our teachers are always learners and as such role model everything we want for our students. 

If you’re thinking of relocating, then give Leicester a look!   There are a range of affordable areas to live within an easy commute and an exciting city right on the doorstep. 

So, if you want a forward thinking, dynamic school to take your career to the next level, we would welcome your application.  Just like Leicester City’s 5000 to 1 shot, we are pushing the boundaries for our students and invite you to be part of our odds beating success! 

Full DBS check applies.
