Outwood Grange Academies Trust are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed Teacher of English to join our strong and supportive English department.
Located in the attractive village of Newbold in Chesterfield, a short drive from the beauty of the Peak District in Derbyshire and the thriving city of Sheffield, Outwood Academy Newbold is a school with a clear and persuasive ethos.
We believe that children never achieve their full potential if their time at school is wasted, and consequently we expect our teachers to bring out the best in each and every student. Our diverse curriculum has something for everyone, with extra guidance for those requiring additional support, and we do whatever it takes to help young people develop a sense of responsibility – towards themselves, each other, their community and the wider world.
We are extremely proud of the transformation our academy has started and our welcoming and supportive culture and climate will engage you immediately. If you share our worldview and want to make a real difference to the lives of young people in Chesterfield, you can join us in transforming futures.
At GCSE, we teach WJEC specifications in English Language and English Literature and we have developed a focused curriculum from Year 7 to Year 11, which prepares students well for the rigors of their GCSE courses and beyond.
You will be able to access the extensive advice, support, resources, CPD and career opportunities available across the Outwood Grange Family of Schools.
This is an opportunity to join our Academy in a pivotal year as we strive for excellence in all areas, transforming the lives of the young people in our care. 86% of students achieved A*-C in GCSE English in 2015 and we are making sustainable improvements which will continue to improve the achievements and life chances of our students.
The Outwood Grange Family of Schools offers:
- The opportunity to work and progress across the Family of Schools.
- The chance to apply for leadership roles in the Deeps working across the whole Academy.
- The support and expertise of our Directors of English working across the Family of Schools.
- A full and detailed programme of support and development.
- A further comprehensive programme of professional development provided through the Outwood Institute of Education.
