Closing date:

Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School (QEGS)Blackburn, Lancashire

Date posted:
Start date: September 2018
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Will be set according to qualifications and experience
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: No

Required from September 2018, a well-qualified, bright and enthusiastic teacher, to lead the Sixth Form department in a successful, significantly oversubscribed and expanding school. A willingness to contribute to the extra-curricular life of the school is expected.

The successful candidate will be required to teach and we are flexible regarding the subject – our priority is to find a strong leader for our Sixth Form. The ability to teach more than one subject would be advantageous but is not essential. 

Our Sixth Form offers students a great blend of tradition and history with a modern, business-like approach to education and work. Our small teaching groups allow us to offer a seminar style approach in many lessons and in the practical subjects, there is plenty of ‘hands-on’ experience. There are over 20 subjects available at A level.

We understand and share the belief that academic performance must come first and that results must be the best possible for each student. This only happens when pastoral care is of a high standard and students are able to approach staff when they have difficulties, in the sure knowledge that time and expertise will be available to them. This, plus very close monitoring of standards by Tutors and the Head of Sixth Form, is the cornerstone of advanced study at Queen Elizabeth’s. Hence the excellent A level results achieved, taking over 90% of our students straight to University each year.

QEGS has a pay scale above CPS and remuneration will be set according to qualifications and experience. All teachers are members of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme.

Applicants must have a good, relevant degree and have a PGCE. 

Blackburn offers easy access to the major conurbations of Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds as well as to stunningly beautiful countryside.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be subject to an enhanced DBS and Prohibition List check.
