Owing to expansion we are seeking to recruit a Head of English to Avon Valley College, an 11-18 College within the Salisbury Plains Trust, for September 2019.
The successful applicant will have a good understanding of the cultural reforms underway, a passion for the subject, ambitious career goals, and a relentless drive toward self-improvement.
Our vision is to create an environment where teachers can plan and deliver the best lessons they can, unimpeded by disruption. This vision can only be realised by a 100% commitment and buy-in by all teachers to the ethos of the Academy. We believe that consistent routines, clear boundaries, and high expectations facilitate creative and engaging lessons. Leaders must believe in that ethos, and hold each other to account for upholding the standards that support it.
Our values of honesty, fairness and endeavour feel real, and mutual respect is apparent in strong relationships between pupils, parents and staff. We are ambitious for our students and for our school.
The successful applicant will be able to demonstrate significant impact in a leadership area and be seeking a fresh challenge in a school that is in the process of transformation.
