Ewell Castle is a thriving, independent school located in Ewell Village, one mile outside Epsom, in leafy Surrey. The school is co-educational from Nursery to Sixth Form and enjoys small classes, averaging approximately fifteen over the whole School. Ewell Castle has an excellent reputation for its pastoral care of pupils and enjoys a vibrant community spirit including regular events for staff, parents and friends of the School. 

We are seeking to appoint a suitably experienced and enthusiastic graduate teacher with an English specialism to join a highly successful and established department and teach primarily across Key Stage 3 and 4.   The role includes the responsibility of KS3 English Co-ordinator which involves overseeing the development of schemes of work, texts, exams and resources for Years 7-9 in addition to managing our monthly ‘Literacy Focus.’ This post comes with additional remuneration of a management allowance.

In Years 7-9 English, we broadly follow the English National Curriculum, each year group being taught poetry, prose and drama, both pre and post 20th century texts. Our departmental/school assessment policy also reflects National Curriculum Assessment Levels. Class sizes range from approximately 12-18 in size with smaller groups in Year 7. We all teach a similar literacy programme on a monthly rotation, but there is scope for individual teacher passion and initiative beyond that in texts chosen, from which to teach a range of English skills. 

Closing date:  Midday Tuesday 29th January 2019

Please note that we reserve the right to appoint before the closing date.
