Teacher of English 0.8fte over 4 days - Maternity Cover - for April 2020
We are seeking to appoint an excellent teacher of English to join the highly successful and supportive English Faculty at Langley School on a part-time basis, to cover a period of maternity leave.
The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic and inspirational teacher of English to GCSE level, committed to facilitating high levels of student engagement and academic progress, creating a stimulating and positive classroom ethos and fostering independent and collaborative student-led learning. The Faculty is dynamic and forward thinking, made up of a combination of experienced and new teachers, who work together effectively as a team and take a collaborative and innovative approach to planning and curriculum delivery.
Langley is a wonderful school to work at and learn in and, as our recent Ofsted report suggests: 'Pupils are thoroughly prepared for life in modern Britain' at our school, where the holistic approach to child centred learning is valued as highly as the outcomes they eventually achieve at the end of their time with us.
Our school’s fundamental principles focus on supporting, challenging and inspiring the whole Langley community ‘to be the best that we can be’. But these are not simply words on paper. Students, staff and governors genuinely give all they can, to bring those principles to life every day. Examinations are critically important, of course, and our students achieve superbly well in them, but we truly believe in developing young people to deal with the tests of their lifetime, not merely to endure a lifetime of tests. Everyone who visits us comments on the special ethos of our school – ‘the Langley way’.
