About the English Department
The department currently consists of three excellent practitioners who, whilst still a new team, have worked hard to innovate provision and resources. Students understand how English is such an important and relevant subject. We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic Teacher of English to enhance our strong team in the English department. The team is committed to inspiring a love of the subject and achieving excellent outcomes for all our students.
Excellence in the department has been recognised by other colleagues in the school and Trust and we work with other subjects to help improve cross-curricular links to help to grow an exciting and engaging curriculum.
Colleagues in the department are inspiring a love of reading in our students. This has gathered momentum recently with the introduction of Guided Reading and the Accelerated Readers Scheme. We have recently re-furbished our library so our students now have access to a brand new, state of the art facility that inspires them to read for pleasure. We hope that you will be excited and inspired to play a part in this exciting development.
In addition, as a small department, we benefit from being part of the MNSP trust. We share resources with the other secondary schools in the trust and work together to continually develop the curriculum and, as such, you would have access to a wide range of excellent resources and teaching aids which have been developed by a range of highly qualified and experienced colleagues.
You would also be able to take advantage of CPD opportunities along with the other schools in the trust. As such there is a great opportunity for you to inspire our pupils and to further develop their love of English and to make excellent progress and also to continue to develop your own practise in a supportive and experienced team.
