We are looking for a lively and engaging teacher to join our fantastic English department. The team, which comprises 9 teachers, 3 HLTAs and an administrative assistant is highly successful in every respect. This very well lead department, with excellent schemes of learning and good assessment practice, offers a great environment to thrive professionally. We believe in offering a truly rich curriculum so that our pupils experience the best of English literature and develop as confident communicators.
We are looking for a colleague with a degree in English who loves working in a team and is determined to inspire his or her pupils with a love of reading and writing. You will be well supported in this endeavour through close collaboration with our wonderful library and dedicated librarians.
Our ambition at Lynn Grove Academy is that every young person should discover what they are good at and we aim to make this happen by offering a rich curriculum and fantastic extra-curricular offer. Pupils and staff alike have access to exceptional opportunities as members of the Creative Education Trust.
At Lynn Grove we absolutely believe in developing ourselves professionally and emphasise the importance of developing subject specific expertise. We will make sure that your professional development is bespoke to your individual needs. We know that working together not only improves results but also reduces workload and our structures support this with a generous weekly allocation of CPD time for all teachers.
The department works closely with colleagues teaching Media Studies and Drama; there could be opportunities for the successful candidate to develop this aspect of their practice.
