We are seeking an inspirational teacher who is ready to make an impact as a middle leader. Our ideal candidate would be an innovative and reflective teacher who is determined that all learners achieve; you will be a well-qualified, dynamic and enthusiastic teacher playing a central role in the strategic development of the department.

English is a large department with many highly-valued, experienced teachers and support staff. They are a close-knit and supportive team who work well together. Whilst they have high expectations, this is balanced with kindness, humour and a shared sense of purpose.

The department has achieved a significant trend of outstanding performance at GCSE over recent years in both Language and Literature. GCSE English Language outcomes are above 80% A*-C. We are ambitious for all our students and staff.

As Second in English, you will have:-

  • proven ability as an excellent classroom practitioner
  • a proven record of adding value to pupils’ English attainment
  • a passion for learning and high quality teaching
  • successful management experience and proven leadership skills

This is an exceptional middle leadership opportunity for an ambitious teacher to gain outstanding experience and further career development. If you have a real desire to make a difference and a desire to develop professionally in a genuinely nurturing environment then we would love to hear from you.

Salendine Nook High is a supportive school and has a strong personalised professional development programme, covering all aspects of teaching, learning and leadership.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All staff are subject to an enhanced DBS check. A conviction may not exclude candidates from appointment but will be considered as part of the recruitment process.

The school converted to Academy status on 1st February 2012. It is on the western side of Huddersfield, one mile from the M62. The road system makes travel to Leeds, Bradford and the whole Yorkshire region very easy.
