“Opportunities for professional development and sharing of best practice are numerous”. Ofsted May 2012
Malmesbury School requires an enthusiastic, well-qualified full time experienced teacher of English. The English Faculty is a dynamic and successful team with a history of very good exam results. The school has superb accommodation and the English Faculty occupies a suite of classrooms grouped around a faculty office. All classrooms have interactive whiteboards and the faculty also has a computer room and a classroom with access to iMac’s. The successful applicant will have leadership responsibilities within the faculty. There will be opportunities to teach both English Language and Literature across the age range from 11-18.
At Malmesbury School our vision is to be a happy, caring and excellent community. We are proud to be a truly comprehensive school providing an education of the highest quality for all the students within Malmesbury and the surrounding area.
In our most recent Ofsted inspection in May 2012, the inspectors found that in all areas the school is 'Outstanding'. One parental comment summarises what many others say; ‘This is a wonderful school. It nurtures, cares and educates the children’. In 2014 we established the Avon Teaching School Alliance and we now lead a group of excellent local schools and universities in providing high quality Professional Development Opportunities to staff at all stages in their careers. Also in 2014 we became a Core Maths lead school and now work with a number of schools across Wiltshire, Swindon and Gloucestershire leading the development of post 16 Core Maths.
In March 2015 we established the Athelstan Multi Academy Trust which consists of three secondary schools (Malmesbury School, Bradon Forest School and The Dean Academy), two in North Wiltshire and one in Gloucestershire. The Trust offers further career development opportunities for colleagues to work across more than one school.
Malmesbury School is a highly successful school that offers unparalleled support and opportunities to staff who wish to develop their skills and leadership. The school is well situated just north of the M4 (J17), within easy travelling distance of Bristol, Bath, and Swindon and just on the edge of the Cotswolds.
The closing date for applications is noon on Monday 20th November 2017 with interviews taking place on Thursday 30th November 2017.
The Athelstan Trust is an equal opportunities employer. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share in this obligation. The successful candidate will be required to undertake an enhanced disclosure by the DBS.
