We are looking for a well-qualified and highly motivated teacher of English, who has a love for their subject. There is the possibility of teaching at A level at our partner sixth form, Harington School.
We welcome applications either from NQTs, who will be well supported by experienced mentors and through our teaching school alliance; or from more experienced candidates where there are exceptional opportunities for further professional development and promotion.
We have outstanding facilities throughout, with purpose-built laboratories offering excellent teaching resources and access to numerous iPads, laptops and computers. Harington School and Catmose College are part of the Rutland and District Schools’ Federation, both of which have been graded outstanding by Ofsted.
For successful candidates there are exceptional opportunities for further professional development and promotion across the Federation. This provides wider opportunities for staff, giving them broader experience across different organisations, including the opportunity to teach A levels in an academically able environment, should their skills and experience be appropriate. The successful candidate will be joining a strong and supportive team of specialist teachers who take pride in achieving the best outcomes for all students.
Teachers are able to enjoy many additional benefits that come as part of working within the Federation. These include, amongst others:
- Teachers at top of scale may receive up to a 2% pay award annually for good performance, in addition to any incremental pay progression.
- Relocation support for hard-to-recruit subjects.
- Vast range of staff training including a funded Masters scheme.
- Primary and secondary form teaching opportunities.
- Staff laptops.
- Priority admission for children of staff to the College and Primary.

The Federation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all students in our care and expects all staff to share this commitment. All staff are responsible for ensuring safeguarding, health and safety policies are implemented in line with Federation policy and current legislation.
