For September 2017, we seek to appoint an energetic, ambitious teacher to help lead a highly committed team of professionals determined to develop the teaching of English so that students of all abilities continue to enjoy their learning and are motivated to succeed.

The English Area has a reputation for excellence with high results reflecting the exciting quality of teaching and learning. Teachers are innovative when developing their skills in the classroom and thrive on collaboration.  The successful applicant will work with a dedicated subject leadership team to help shape and deliver an engaging curriculum and programme of professional development.

We require an able and enthusiastic classroom practitioner, who already has leadership experience in an English department, to work with the Director of English to steer the Area to even greater success. 

Judged by Ofsted as outstanding in every category, the school has a national reputation for innovative educational practice and is committed to the importance of extra-curricular opportunities.  We hold “Gold” awards from Sport England and the Arts Council.  All staff benefit from high quality professional development and we place an emphasis on nurturing and developing all staff.  SWCHS leads a Teaching School Alliance and is the founding secondary school of a multi-academy trust, Saffron Academy Trust.

A recruitment package, including some financial assistance, is available. We operate a childcare voucher scheme, and there is an early years nursery on site.

Interviews: Tuesday 28th March.
