A rare opportunity has arisen to join our team in Warwickshire’s beautiful, mediæval market town of Henley-in-Arden. Where better to teach English than in the district of Stratford-upon-Avon, at the heart of Shakespeare's county? English sits within the Faculty of English, Languages and the Arts, so you will benefit from joining a large team of supportive colleagues in a school that places a strong emphasis on the importance of the arts curriculum.
Teacher of English 0.8 FTE
0.8 FTE (4 days/week) – January 2018
We’re looking forward to reading letters of application from experienced teachers, or from newly qualified entrants to the profession; NQTs enjoy a full programme of support, or for more experienced colleagues, we are delighted to be able to offer access to National College leadership programmes through our Teaching School partnerships, including NPQML and NPQSL.
Celebrating a fourth, consecutive year of record results (Summer 2017, the English team achieved 83.2% Grades 9-4 and 72.3% Grades 9-5, with initial Progress 8 indicators for English around +0.3), teachers that are passionate about inspiring learning will thrive here – join us in our relentless pursuit of ‘Achieving Excellence Together’.
Visits to our green-field site, bordered by the River Alne, are welcome (and encouraged!) so that you may see for yourself why Ofsted described our flourishing students as, ‘…well behaved, polite and courteous’ when they last visited.
For an informal chat about this exciting opportunity, please contact Mrs Rachel McGhie, Head of Faculty, on 01564 792364. There's also plenty to see on our website if you're hoping to glimpse a flavour of what a special place this is to work.
Our school application form is available by clicking 'Apply Now' below or on our own website (please do not use the Warwickshire LA format); applications should be accompanied by a supporting letter of application (no more than two sides of A4). Should you have any queries about the process, wish to arrange a visit, or to submit your application, please contact Mrs Sally Smith, Administration Manager on 01564 797550 / firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for applications is Monday 25 September 2017 at 12 midday. Interviews will likely take place on Wednesday 27 September 2017.
We welcome applications from both newly qualified and experienced teachers for this post.
