Meadowbrook College provides full and part-time education and support to children aged 5 to 16. We provide a high quality, safe learning environment in which to develop positive behaviours and skills for students who have been permanently excluded from school.  We also offer a broad range of preventative programmes and support to enable students to access education in order for them to enhance their life chances beyond the college.  Our staff work hard to ensure our young people achieve the best outcomes they can by creating individual educational packages which meet their needs and which equip them with the skills and attributes they require for their next destination. Our hope for our students is that they will re-engage with learning, be successful and achieve their goals. Our aim is for every one of our students to move on to college, school, an apprenticeship or employment.

We are seeking to recruit a talented and skilled KS3/4 English Teacher who is also able to lead the subject across the college. This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced teacher with the ability to inspire and motivate students and staff alike; a unique opportunity to make a substantial contribution to further improving outcomes for a significant group of vulnerable and challenging learners and to shape and develop English provision across the College.  We are looking for applicants who are willing to work on our Oxford base.  Leadership of the team will require you to travel across all our sites (Banbury, Oxford, Kidlington and Abingdon).
