We are looking for an English Teacher in a school which offers excellent opportunities for professional development. The new post-holder will be a strong classroom practitioner with a commitment to achieving the highest standards both academically and in terms of the learning habits and personal dispositions of our students.
This is an exciting role for enthusiastic teachers as we prepare our students for GCSE and beyond (the school’s first GCSEs will be in 2021). Our oldest Year group started Year 9 in September 2018 so this post is ideally suited to a teacher who is passionate about curriculum design and development, especially at KS4. The post-holder will be joining an innovative, ambitious and energetic staff group that seeks to deliver an outstanding curriculum, and will be well supported by an experienced Senior Leadership Team.
Ealing Fields High School is a member of the Twyford Trust family of schools. The school’s unique feature is a commitment to developing students’ capacity to think logically and express well-reasoned and strongly articulated arguments. It has therefore developed an innovative Philosophy and Ethics programme which all students follow in years 7-8, and is using Maths to establish a culture of problem-solving. Relations between staff and students are extremely positive and it is easy for every member of the school to be well known by all of the staff. Staff joining at this time are likely to have a highly motivated drive towards building an outstanding school community within an already highly successful Trust.
This role is suitable for NQT and RQT applicants. The new post-holder will be joining us at a time of growth and the organisation therefore offers good promotion prospects for motivated and energetic teachers who support the ethos of our schools.
We firmly believe that any teacher who visits the school will see the passion for English shared by both students and staff alike - you are warmly invited to visit us and see for yourself what an outstanding school Ealing Fields is. To arrange a visit, please email the Head of English, Ed Clifton, at email@example.com
