We are extremely proud of the transformation our academy has started and therefore we are seeking applications from outstanding applicants with integrity, imagination and energy for this rewarding role as a Head of English. This is an opportunity to join our established English Department who are committed to driving progress and attainment to improve the life chances of every student. We need a leader who is passionate about their subject and keen to drive their department to provide young people with the best possible education whatever their background or ability. If you care about the success of all students and have the energy, enthusiasm and experience to make that success a reality, we would welcome your application.

You must possess the skills and determination to make a significant difference to the lives of our students and share our single goal of ‘Students First, raising standards and transforming lives’.

We can enhance your skills and teaching practice and help you to move into the position to which you aspire. Our Trust includes five teaching schools, a Maths Hub, an English Hub, four School Direct providers, two national support schools and an appropriate body. These organisations work together to form the Outwood Institute of Education and work to support schools to improve outcomes for young people across the North of England. If you want a rewarding career in education with the prospect of advancement we want to hear from you.
