We strive to provide an aspirational, challenging and supportive environment where each student is expected to aim for the highest standard in all aspects of school life and beyond. We have made significant strides in our school transformation and seek to appoint staff that understand the culture and climate of the school, our community, and the wider educational environment. We are currently in consultation to become part of Congleton Multi Academy Trust. This gives staff a unique opportunity to work alongside colleagues in another secondary school and to gain support when necessary. We are excited about becoming part of the Trust and what this will mean for us in improving the outcomes of all of our students. As Head Teacher I really do feel blessed to have such a supportive, resilient and engaged staff team and I hope that you will wish to move forward on your application and look to join us in due course.
The English Department has seen a number of changes over the past three years. We are looking to establish a new, resilient, forward thinking and dynamic team of individuals who are committed to promoting a ‘love of English’ across the school. An enormous amount of work has been done to overhaul schemes of work at Key Stage 3 and 4 to ensure that, all students, are enthused, engaged and challenged at all times. And, most importantly, that they are best prepared for the rigour of the new curriculum demands at Key Stage 4.
The department is made up of five staff, two of which are the Headteacher and the SENDCO. All members of staff have their own classroom equipped with an interactive white board. AQA specifications for both English Language and English Literature are currently taught in Years 10 and 11.
It is vital that the appointed English teacher is willing to work closely with existing and new staff and share in our vision and goals, in order to encourage the aspirations of all students through their commitment to English.
