Westminster Academy specialises in International Business and Enterprise. It serves a multi-ethnic community in Central London, and at the heart of our approach is the personalised curriculum based on the International Baccalaureate Learner Profile.
At Westminster Academy we believe that education is success. By providing all of our students with a world-class education, we prepare them to be competitive on the international stage. We strive to be the best in every field, as is demonstrated in achieving our ‘Outstanding’ status. As a member of staff at a fast-paced, forward-thinking organisation, you will genuinely be changing lives.
Are you a driven, innovative and organised classroom teacher, looking to join a friendly, supportive and successful English department? A post has arisen for a full time English teacher to join our team. The department achieves outstanding results, with excellent progress achieved at both KS4 and KS5.
Within English, we prepare our students for the new GCSE by teaching challenging content - in an accessible format - from Year 7 onwards. Our KS4 students benefit from our forward-thinking, personalised and collaborative approach towards the new GCSE; our recent results with our Year 11s confirm that this approach works. This summer, 85% of students achieved a Grade 9 - 4 in English Literature, and 79% of students achieved a Grade 9 - 4 in English Language. At KS5, the Academy offers IB English Literature and English Language and Literature, again with a set of world-class results.
The ideal candidate will be enthusiastic, driven, and an excellent classroom practitioner who is committed to student success and development. There may be the opportunity for an additional responsibility for the right candidate, as well as some KS5 teaching.
Experience of planning and delivering GCSE lessons is essential, as the job will involve working closely with all colleagues within the department to continue developing our existing provision. The willingness to contribute to extra-curricular activities is also desirable. Most importantly, there is a real opportunity to contribute to a forward-thinking, highly motivated team that is making a difference.
What we offer:
- an innovative educational concept;
- an excellent programme of continuing professional development;
- the opportunity to develop personally and professionally;
- the chance to shape the future of the subject.
