Our students require a teacher of English who has the ability to deliver high quality teaching and learning for our students. We are seeking a talented and inspiring teacher to join our small school. 

Parkside Community School is a good school with sustained improvement. The school has now achieved three years of record breaking GCSE results which have exceeded national averages and placed the school in the upper quartiles nationally across a number of areas.  This is an exciting time to join the school; in 2017 we were in the highest ranking local authority school in Derbyshire for progress. We are looking for teachers that are able to support the school in sustaining improvements and keen to take the school further in its journey to excellence. GCSE success at Parkside has increased the school’s popularity in Chesterfield and offered parents in the locality with more choice when making decisions about secondary schooling. 

The successful candidate is expected to teach English at both Key Stage 3 and 4 across the whole ability range. You must possess a track record of successful teaching practice, underpinned by a broad base of subject knowledge and teaching and learning strategies. In addition, we are seeking candidates with highly developed communication and organisation skills combined with the ability to engage, enthuse and motivate our students to achieve their potential. We are also looking for a teacher who is able to offer extra-curricular activities and promote reading with students and their families.

If you would like to join a small, improving school, where every person matters, please submit your application by the closing date. Applicants are able to visit the school prior to the closing date. 

Appointment will, of course, be subject to appropriate child safeguarding procedures.
