Riddlesdown Collegiate is an outstanding school (OFSTED, May 2016) with a clear vision to deliver successful outcomes and positive futures for all of our students. They are bright, well-motivated and a pleasure to work with, whilst our staff are talented, hard-working and ambitious for themselves and others. Our superb facilities enable us to provide the very best learning environment and learning experiences for our students and it is the combination of these factors that leads to the high academic standards and enviable reputation that The Collegiate Trust is known for. I am very proud of what we do and what we have achieved at the Collegiate and, as a World Class School, I hold the highest aspirations for what we will do and achieve in the future.
As Assistant Director of English you will share responsibility with the Director of English for the development of teaching and learning and the standards achieved in English across the Collegiate.

This is an exciting and very fulfilling post, providing excellent preparation for further promotion and, naturally, there will be high quality support and opportunities for further professional learning and development in the role.
