Shirebrook Academy 

A community of inspiration, excellence and opportunities for all to grow

11-16 Academy 

Head of English and Whole School Literacy

L10 £51,311 

September 2020

The governors are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and effective Leader of English, who can share their enthusiasm and expertise with our success-hungry students and work with our dedicated team of 10 English teachers in their pursuit of excellence. 

Shirebrook Academy has been housed in ‘State of the Art’ buildings since 2013. 

On 1st May 2017 we joined ACET (Aston Community Education Trust) which further strengthens our capacity to improve opportunities for all our students and staff.

We are looking for a person with the drive, creativity and vision to be able to give clear direction to the team and motivate students to be the best that they can be. The successful candidate will be well supported by the Senior Leadership Team and the ACET English Consultant. The priority will initially be the leadership of the English Department and Whole School Literacy but there is potential for the right candidate to move into a broader Senior Leadership role over time with appropriate increased remuneration.

This is an exciting opportunity for a successful professional with Middle Leadership experience who is looking to take their first steps towards a senior role. 

According to an African proverb, ‘it takes a whole village to raise a child’. Similarly, it takes a whole school to educate a child with everyone in the school community playing a vital role.  Educating a child is a collective endeavour, at Shirebrook Academy we stand and fall as a team, we celebrate each other’s success and we take collective responsibility and support each other when we fail.

This Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  We are also an equal opportunities Employer.
