We are seeking an inspirational teacher of English to join our school.  This is an opportunity to work with a passionate team who have recent records of examination success within the department.  

The Romero Academy Trust has negotiated accommodation, rent free for a year, for the right candidate.  

English Literature goes hand in hand with Language and therefore they are taught alongside each other.  Students are introduced to a range of poetry, modern novels and literary texts throughout their Cardinal Wiseman journey and we endeavour to bring these to life with traditional methods of teaching such as the use of media resources, drama events, group discussion and independent research. 

Cardinal Wiseman is an 11-18 school in the north-east of Coventry which is on a journey of improvement.  The school's A-Level results were the best in the city in 2016 and students achieved 73% grades 9-4 for English in Summer 2017.  This post is instrumental in driving improvement in the school to enable students to achieve their full potential.  If you are a dynamic, passionate and motivational teacher of English who is focused on helping students achieve their true potential, we would welcome your application.

This is an ideal opportunity for an NQT or an experienced teacher seeking a new challenge.  The ability to teach KS5 would be desirable.

Closing date:  12pm 17 October 2017

Interviews to take place: 19 October 2017

Completed application forms should be returned to: Nikki Stoves, HR Officer on nstoves@cardinalwiseman.coventry.sch.uk

Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our students.  All offers of employment will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
