Your goal will be to have a dramatic and positive impact on their progress so that they can not only close the gap in English and Maths, but also successfully access the rest of the curriculum through making accelerated progress.
The successful candidate will join a dynamic and supportive team of English and Maths teachers who are committed to helping our students achieve to the highest level possible, and a school which prioritises the professional development of all its staff.
