We wish to appoint an excellent Leader of English to join this strong department. Applications are welcome from individuals of all faiths or none, who will support the Catholic ethos of our school. This is an exciting opportunity to support the literacy development of students.
Our repeatedly oversubscribed School achieved 80% 5 A*-C (4+) including Maths and English in 2017 and the Sixth Form received an ‘outstanding’ ALP’s judgement in 2016. In our previous Ofsted Section 5 inspection both ‘Behaviour & Safety’ and our Sixth Form were judged ‘outstanding’. In our most recent monitoring visit (January 2018) Ofsted stated that the ‘…steady and reassuring approach ensures the strong commitment of staff…’ and ‘the teachers are welcoming and friendly, and it creates an atmosphere where you belong…’
In English we achieve consistently excellent results – in June 2017 81% A* 4+ in English Language, 69% 5+ and 26% 7+. In English Literature 80% of students secured 4+. The English Department currently has five dedicated teaching rooms, all equipped with interactive white boards. The team also includes dedicated Media and Drama teachers and classroom.
