Barnsley Academy is part of United Learning, a large and growing group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England. Schools within United Learning work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. By collecting expertise and combining resources, we help to make the tough job of teaching a little easier. With a shared curriculum and lesson plans from around the group available to all, our teachers have strong foundations to lead the engaging, rounded education our children deserve. Our intranet site, United Hub, is just one example of how we share this resource and communicate across sites, helping to simplify processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance. We reward our staff: with wide career opportunities – between Primary and Secondary, Academy and Independent – better pay, benefits, and ultimately the satisfaction of helping every child at each of our schools to succeed and reach their full potential.

Barnsley Academy is a rapidly improving school, and the successful candidate will be joining us at an exciting time in our development. We are looking to recruit a committed teacher of English to work within our fantastic English department. Students at Barnsley Academy enjoy English lessons and outcomes have risen dramatically in recent years. The department is ambitious; we know that we have the skills, drive and support to provide an outstanding learning experience for our students.

We are seeking a driven, dedicated teacher who will engage, enthuse and challenge students to achieve their best. Our ideal candidate will be a creative thinker and possess the ability to develop innovative teaching strategies in order to inspire our students and help them to foster a love of English, both inside and outside of the classroom.

United Learning is one of the leading school groups in the country and offers unrivalled career development opportunities and support to ensure you achieve your ambitions. At United Learning we acknowledge that learning is a lifelong journey and that we have a vital part to play in our local communities. Our mission, each and every day, is to provide an entitlement to excellence in the services that we offer for our students, our staff, our parents and our communities. Through this we aim to pursue the development of a lifelong love of learning in us all, and bring out the best in everyone.
