This is an exciting opportunity to join a fast developing school. Your experience, knowledge, enthusiasm and innovation will help you to deliver high quality and exciting lessons that will be fully supported by the schools leadership.

We are looking for an innovative and creative thinker who can bring the curriculum to life both inside and outside of the classroom environment. We are keen to hear from educational professionals who can think outside of the box in order to engage and enthuse a diverse range of abilities in the learning process.

  • You will be expected to plan, deliver and develop the school Curriculum in English, as well as focussing on developing Reading in consultation with the lower school and upper school across all Key Stages
  • Predominately teach Key Stage 4 and 5 lessons, however there may be a requirement to teach English to Secondary school pupils who are not ready to access the curriculum at those Key Stages, so the ability to remain adaptable and plan at Key Stage 1,2 and 3 for some of our learners would be advantageous
  • You will also be expected to support our Identity Curriculum, working pastorally with our children. We want all of our pupils to experience the best in a high quality learning environment.

Our curriculum is supported by our own therapeutic team that work alongside our teaching staff to help and support the pupils. The ability to teach other subjects across the curriculum would be beneficial in supporting the schools offer of providing a broad and balanced curriculum. With this in mind we would be interested to hear from teachers who would enjoy the challenge of overseeing our NOCN (National Online College Network) accedited courses.
