A unique opportunity for an extraordinary English teacher
Are you looking to start or develop your teaching career in an innovative, creative and supportive environment?
Would you like to be part of a growing and thriving school that is preparing to move into brand-new, purpose built accommodation in September 2018?
Do you believe in working in partnership with families and the local community to enable each child to aim high?
Are you passionate about the importance of continuing professional learning?
Do you believe that each child’s journey of discovery should include learning life and academic skills in equal measure, preparing each child to thrive in our global society?
The Wren School does.
The Wren School - a six form entry 11 - 18 secondary Free School that opened in West Reading in September 2015 is planning for further growth in staff for September 2018 as our oldest students enter Year 10 and continue their GCSE studies. We pride ourselves on being a local school for the local community and our reputation is extremely positive; we anticipate that we will be oversubscribed in Year 7 next year. Work is well underway on our permanent building, which is set within an amazing site; it will be fully operational by September 2018. It is our ambition to create a happy and thriving school that will facilitate the growth and development of the community and we’re searching for exceptional people who will share our vision that:
Each child, regardless of background, will receive a world-class education and
Be nurtured, challenged and inspired to ‘aim high’.
Working with our current teaching staff team, we are looking to appoint additional English teacher and welcome applications from NQTs. An ability to offer more than one subject may be helpful but is not essential. Part-time appointments will be considered for the right candidate. This post will attract a TLR2a for the suitable candidate. For more information please contact the school.
Our Key Stage 3 approach is a thematic one with an intention to achieve a smooth transition from Key stage 2. We aim to develop skills for learning alongside the knowledge that will enable our learners to ‘aim high’ at GCSE and beyond. Embarking on Year 9 study, our students commence GCSEs in the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and Citizenship; potential option subjects deliver GCSE-style taster modules in order to facilitate option choices that commence part-way through the year.
If our vision and ethos match your own philosophy, then we hope you will be tempted to apply.
You can apply by downloading a recruitment pack from our website (www.wrenschool.org) and completing the application and equal opportunities monitoring form or, alternatively, you can apply using the TES application form. However, if you are successful you will be asked to complete The Wren School application form.
Closing date for applications is midday on Monday 29th January 2018. Shortlisted applicants may be invited to attend an interview, at the school, prior to the closing date.
