Due to the promotion of the existing post holder, we are seeking a dynamic and creative individual to help lead the English Faculty to its next stage of development. As someone whose lessons are exemplars of outstanding teaching and learning, you will have a proven track record of using your passion for English to inspire students to make the progress of which they are truly capable.  

A key part of the role is to ensure that there is no teaching in the faculty which is less than outstanding, enabling you to develop your skills as a teaching and learning coach.  In addition, you will take a substantial role in continually evaluating, developing, and implementing changes to the English curriculum in years 7-11.

She and the school’s other leaders are resolute in raising the aspirations of pupils.” Ofsted also said that “Staff…overwhelmingly praised the supportive leadership of the school, commenting upon the good professional development opportunities they have”
