Applications are invited from enthusiastic and committed graduates to teach English to highly motivated pupils in a collaborative and capable department. Our curriculum is exhilarating and enables creative practice for teachers and pupils alike. The school has an enviable reputation for academic and all-round excellence feeding many of the top senior schools in the country. The successful candidate will join a Department of a dozen English teachers working in support of the Head of English.
Lambrook’s English curriculum is based upon the Common Entrance syllabus. Reflecting Lambrook’s approach to academia the syllabus is varied, exciting, demanding, topical and under constant collaborative review. We help children to develop their emotional vocabulary as responsive readers, alongside an analytical approach to the author’s craft. We encourage ambition and risk-taking in their own work.
The position affords the opportunity to explore the subject in depth with pupils who are enthusiastic and eager to learn. Teachers are mostly based in one classroom for all English classes, apart from their weekly library-based lessons and any booked ICT-based lessons. The emphasis is on enjoyment and confident, rigorous exploration of text, through discussion, analysis, comprehension, creative writing, competitions, public speaking and drama. We celebrate successes and give plenty of practical, specific guidance. Co-curricular activities include debating, poetry and drama.
