We seek to appoint an exciting and inspirational teacher, with ambition to achieve the very best possible outcomes for students in English. This is a superb opportunity to join a highly effective and dynamic department, and to teach in a school where teachers are supported and encouraged to thrive and develop. Blatchington Mill School is a superb place to work.

We are an ambitious school and we believe that every child can succeed. If you are a superb classroom teacher, a self-reflective practitioner, a highly effective communicator and have ambition to develop your career, then please apply to join us in creating an ‘ethic of excellence’ for all our students. We are committed to ensuring that we inspire and enthuse our students.

Blatchington Mill is a ‘Good’ school, with ‘Outstanding’ behaviour and safety. We achieve positive value-added in our exam results, stretch our most able, and support our most vulnerable. We innovate in the classroom, placing huge value on teacher-led action research and professional development. We work in partnership with schools locally and nationally and believe in collaboration and school-led improvement. We are active participants in the National Teacher Enquiry Network, and Challenge Partners. We are also a designated Stonewall Training School.

Our most recent visit from Challenge Partners said the following about the school: 

“Leaders have a collaborative approach to school improvement, striving for excellence together with enthusiasm and determination.” 

“There are many effective processes through which staff are empowered to work together to share good practice, develop pedagogy and support each other to improve. The school is very inclusive, and students show respect and consideration for one another in their behaviour in classrooms and around the school.” 

“There are excellent relationships between staff and students. Students want to do well. They have confidence in their teachers. No time is lost in managing behaviour.” 

If you would like to join us for this maternity cover, and feel you could thrive in a collegiate and positive atmosphere then please read the accompanying person specification and job description and consider if you possess: 

  • A track record of positive impact upon student outcomes 
  • A high level of subject and literary knowledge
