Fixed Term Contract for 1 Year - Full Time

On behalf of the Academy Committee, we are seeking an inspirational Teacher of English to join our wonderful school and English department at Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School within The Romero Catholic Academy. This is an exciting time to be part of a growing team as we strive for academic excellence for all students in our care.

The Teacher of English position is an ideal opportunity for an NQT or an experienced teacher seeking a new challenge. The ability to also teach KS5 would be desirable but not essential.

At the heart of the English department is a dedication to study great literature, with a range of poetry, modern novels and classic heritage texts being introduced to students throughout their Cardinal Wiseman journey. We endeavour to bring these to life through teachers with expert subject knowledge, whilst at the same time giving students the opportunity to engage with media resources, drama events, group discussions and independent research.

Cardinal Wiseman is an 11-18 school in the north-east of Coventry which is on a journey of improvement. The school’s A-Level results were the best in the city in 2016, and students achieved 73% grades 9-4 for English in Summer 2017.

These posts are instrumental in driving improvement in the school to enable even more students to achieve their full potential. If you are a passionate and motivated teacher who is focused on helping students develop a deep subject knowledge in order to achieve their true potential, we would welcome your application.

In return we can offer:

• a supportive leadership team and vibrant professional community

• quality training to those new to the career from our team of dedicated mentors

• a commitment to continuing professional development

• a positive school culture which believes in distributed and collaborative leadership

• energetic and enthusiastic high students

• a supportive, Catholic ethos across our school communities.

We would be delighted to show you around our school, to arrange a visit, please contact Mrs Renata Robins on 02476 617 231 or email admin@cardinalwiseman.coventry.sch.uk. 

Completed applications should be sent to HR at hr@romero.coventry.sch.uk by 12 noon 20th May 2019

Interview date TBC.
