It is an exciting time at Becket Keys Church of England School (Outstanding, 2014). We are working hard to build upon the exceptional GCSE successes of our three founding cohorts as we aim even higher in 2020. We have also been establishing our new Sixth Form into its third year. Our heavily over-subscribed school is the ideal place to take your next steps in teaching. 

As part of our growth plan, we are now seeking a successful and capable teacher to join our ambitious, successful and hard-working English team in a leadership role. If you can support the department in continuing to deliver rigorous English teaching that suits the demands of the new GCSE, we want to hear from you.
