So you think you may be interested in joining the Stephen Perse Foundation (SPF) community of schools? 

Located in Cambridge, Madingley and Saffron Walden, our schools strive to offer an education which is more than just the delivery of the curriculum and qualifications; learning in a Stephen Perse school is about learning for and about life in readiness for the world beyond.

As Principal of the Foundation, I look to recruit colleagues who are passionate about learning; share in our commitment to educating ethical young people; and understand the critical importance of supporting the emotional and mental wellbeing of all our learners. If you would like a flavour of what this means in practice, please read my most recent blog.

Responsible to: Curriculum Leader of English

Location: Senior School/6th Form, Cambridge

Role Description: 

At the Stephen Perse Foundation everyone is a learner. While our pupils enjoy the benefits of a creative and innovative learning environment, our teachers strive to inspire and engage through using a wide range of pedagogical approaches.

We want every teacher to offer the very best in teaching and learning to our students and this will inevitably, and perhaps even increasingly, involve the digital world. Each student is provided with an iPad from 11-18. We are a leader in the use of digital technology within the classroom and an Apple Distinguished School. This helps us to support our teachers and learners to have an appropriate use of these technologies.

We will want you to have an agile and ambitious mind-set that is open to adopting new techniques. Training and support is offered on a regular basis as part of formal and informal CPD and is focused on student learning.
