Teacher of English
Ryedale School sits in a beautiful rural location and is within easy commuting distance of York, Thirsk & Northallerton.
We are seeking to appoint two full time English teachers to join our ‘Outstanding’ English Department and school.
Ryedale School is a leading secondary comprehensive with results that place us amongst the highest performing schools in the country, (our Progress score for 2017 is 0.64). Building on our ‘Outstanding’ judgements (Ofsted 2012, Local Authority Review 2015), we are continually developing and improving the educational experience for all learners. Our dynamic and inspirational team of staff delivers a high quality learning experience where every student has the opportunity to excel. We are seeking a highly motivated colleague with the enthusiasm and vision to inspire young people to develop enquiring minds and a real interest in English.
Within the Ryedale Federation, we are passionate about the education of our children, continuous professional development of all staff and a strong partnership with parents and the wider community. This post presents fantastic professional development opportunities to the successful candidate, with the potential in the future to work across schools within the Federation.
We are also part of the Yorkshire Teaching Schools’ Alliance and are committed to the development of high quality teaching practices, which not only benefit our students and the progress they make, but supports outstanding teaching, learning and the development of our staff. Through the alliance we also facilitate ITT, provide school to school support and participate in joint CPD projects.
As a forward thinking school, we are currently part of the RISE project; an EEF funded project based on trialling evidenced-based research to support the development of teaching and learning. We would welcome a forward thinking teacher who shares our desire to evolve in the ever changing landscape of education and the commitment to improve the educational experience for all learners.
