Do you want to start your career in an outstanding school which offers high quality professional development and a strong team ethos? If so, then we would love to hear from you. William Edwards has a strong English department and regularly achieves outcomes at GCSE well above the national average in both English Language and English Literature. It is a vibrant team with a strong emphasis on collaboration, creativity and professional development. A number of the team have been trained by us via the Thurrock Teaching School which is located at the school. 

William Edwards is a very popular, oversubscribed 11-16 school, judged ‘outstanding’ by OfSTED.  It is the strategic lead school for the Thurrock Teaching School Alliance and is part of the growing South West Essex Community Education Trust. Core subject pupil outcomes are significantly above the national average.

We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic teacher to join our highly committed English team. We welcome applications from newly qualified colleagues or those in the first few years of their career.  The training and development we offer is second to none and with a new trust Secondary School recently approved by the DfE and due to open next year, continued career progression in the future is a real possibility.

The English Department is well resourced and has seen significant recent investment. The school offers a comprehensive induction programme for all new staff and a strong commitment to continuing staff development and training through the Teaching School. Pre-application visits are welcome.

If you have energy and passion in abundance and would relish the opportunity to join our English team, we look forward to hearing from you.
