Lincoln Christ’s Hospital school is located in the beautiful, historic, cathedral city of Lincoln (average house price semi-detached £140,000).  This is a truly comprehensive academy, with 1,324 students on roll including 270 in the Sixth Form.  We are extremely proud of our whole school and English department results this summer which have been the best in over ten years.  At GCSE, 70% of our comprehensive intake was awarded a grade 4 to 9 in English with 7 students achieving a grade 9.  Our A-Level students had a 100% pass rate at A* to D.   

We wish to appoint a well-qualified, enthusiastic and committed Teacher of English for January 2018.  The ability to teach Media Studies may be an advantage.  The right candidate will be passionate about English, have high expectations of students, and wish to motivate students of all abilities.  This is an excellent opportunity for teachers new to the profession or more experienced professionals looking for their next career step.  For those looking for further responsibility, there is the possibility of whole school TLR being negotiated.  

This will be a rewarding role across the age and ability range, including the possibility of A Level teaching for the right candidate.  The English Department is a strong, enthusiastic and supportive team: discussing and sharing good practice is common-place.  We set ourselves high standards in teaching and learning, and we believe feedback for students on their progress is vital.     We currently have seven full-time and five part-time practitioners, led by a Head of Department, Second in Department and an additional Key Stage Co-ordinator.  Most teachers have their own teaching room.  We have a well-stocked library with a dedicated full-time librarian who works closely with the team to develop students’ enthusiasm for reading. We would welcome a candidate keen to be involved in extra-curricular activities and keen to promote our subject in school.    

All members of the teaching team take on the additional role of Form Tutor.  

The school offers an excellent induction programme for new staff.  

The school is committed to safeguarding children and young people. All post holders are subject to a satisfactory enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check.
