Teacher of English

Our English Department, one of the largest in the school, is extremely successful. Teaching staff are very friendly, supportive of each other, professional and highly qualified. It is housed in a suite of seven rooms and has the use of other rooms in different parts of the building. There is a head of department’s office and good stock room provision. One room is equipped with computers and has access to the school’s network in order to accommodate teaching of media at A Level. Each teaching room has access to its own range of multi-media hardware. 

Year 7 is taught in mixed ability tutor groups. There is an increasing degree of fine tuning as students move from year 8 to 11, with some provision for the most able students as well as those who need additional support in their work. 

At GCSE, students follow the AQA syllabus for English Language and all students are also entered for AQA English Literature.  For A level, we follow the AQA English Literature syllabus, specification B. Both the GCSE and the AS/A2 courses demand great commitment from the staff and depend for their success on high levels of leadership and efficient organisation. Colleagues are encouraged to develop and share resources.

There is an emphasis on developing extra-curricular activities in areas such as creative writing and reading and we work closely with the school library wherever possible. 

We are seeking people who have the ability to help us maintain our very strong examination results.   You must have Qualified Teacher Status (or expect to attain this by September 2019), and the right to work in the UK.  We are not able to offer immigration sponsorship.

Why Work For Us?

St Bede's is a good place to work.  Staff are friendly and supportive of one another: relationships between staff and pupils were recognised by Ofsted as 'exceptionally strong'. 

NQTs benefit from a well developed and comprehensive induction period programme.  More experienced teachers are given the opportunity to participate in training which will help them to develop skills needed for middle and senior management roles.

There are good on-site catering facilities. Staff are able to use the fitness facilities free of charge and to participate in sports activities.  

Music is a big part of school life and staff are welcome to join our senior choir and instrumental groups.  

We have a social event at the end of each term as well as occasional staff trips to the theatre.

The school is situated in Redhill, a commuter belt town in the Surrey Fringe area.  We are close to the M25 and there are good transport links to London and the South Coast from Redhill station which is about 15 minutes walk from the school.  We also benefit from being within walking distance of beautiful countryside . Many staff live locally, others commute from Guildford, South London, Kent and East & West Sussex.
