Lewes Old Grammar School is a happy and friendly school set in the lovely town of Lewes. We are committed to helping all our pupils achieve their potential and are proud of our reputation as a 'family school'. A positive work and life balance is genuinely encouraged and further, we allow our teachers the autonomy to teach in their own style and to develop a curriculum that they can be passionate about.
We require for September 2018 a well-qualified and passionate teacher of English to join our thriving department. The successful candidate will have excellent interpersonal skills combined with the ability to motivate students, whilst retaining a sense of fun. The post would be suitable for an NQT or a more experienced teacher.
If you feel that you have the qualities we are looking for and you are determined to achieve the absolute best for the students that you teach, we would be delighted to hear from you.
English at Lewes Old Grammar School is a vibrant and varied subject in which students are encouraged to develop expressive and informed communication skills. The English Department encourages students to develop a love of English both as an individual pursuit and as a collaborative activity through debate and discussion. In our classrooms, we work to ensure that each child feels valued and heard, and has a range of opportunities to express and develop creativity.
The overriding aims of our teaching in English are that all pupils will enrich their lives during and after schooldays, through an awareness and appreciation of the breadth and variety of language and literature, and will acquire and develop confidence in their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills.
The English Department comprises a creative and affable team of dedicated teachers who are keen to build on a successful record of strong results.
