We are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated teacher who can inspire students at both KS4 and KS5.  You will join a well-established and ambitious department dedicated to ensuring that all students achieve or exceed their potential.  

Ashby School is a thriving, successful and over-subscribed 14-19 Academy with 1,700 students on roll including 600 post-16.  Conveniently located close to the M42 and M1, within easy reach of several areas of outstanding natural beauty and with the newly created national forest on the doorstep, the school is set in its own attractive grounds in the expanding market town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire.  With an excellent reputation within the local community a recent Ofsted inspection found the school to be a ‘good school’ in all inspection categories.

The post offers an excellent opportunity for either an experienced teacher with a proven record of academic success looking for a new challenge, or an individual who is relatively new to the profession with the ability to teach up to KS5 from the outset.  We offer an excellent induction programme in a supportive environment and within the school there is a genuine and shared commitment to on-going professional development. 

The Design Faculty is a fully equipped, purpose built, bright, modern building. Lessons are delivered in a vibrant and stimulating learning environment in which students can explore and develop their creativity. The school has excellent links with local high schools and collaborative staff training sessions are held to ensure positive progression for students.

If you have energy, drive, a passion for your subject and the potential and ambition to be outstanding, we would welcome your application.

Ashby School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of its students and expects all staff to share this commitment.  The successful applicant will be subject to enhanced clearance by the Disclosure and Barring Service.
