English Teacher required from 01 September 2019
Salary: Main Pay Scale – Upper Pay Scale
Cottingham High School has fantastic students, supportive parents, passionate teachers and enormous potential: this is an exciting time to join our school. 100% of our parents would recommend our school to another parent (Parent View Jan 2019.) In May 2017, Ofsted judged the school as good in all areas and the upwards trajectory of our student outcomes continues to evidence this. The class of 2018 delivered our best results ever at GCSE: 72% Basics, and P8 of 0.22 (top 30% of schools nationally). Our Post 16 outcomes placed us in the top 15% of all schools nationally with an ALPs of 3. One parent commented: ‘I cannot thank you and the other staff who've supported my son enough. I will be eternally grateful that you all saw my son’s potential, believed in him and have encouraged him to want to achieve.’ (September 2018)
This is an excellent opportunity for a highly motivated and talented teacher, who is passionate about helping young people to realise their potential, to join our supportive and successful English team. We are looking to make two appointments, one of which would particularly suit a candidate who has a keen interest in supporting students through their KS2 to KS3 transition. Both successful candidates will, however, have the opportunity to teach across the age and ability range.
We invest in all our staff, providing a comprehensive induction programme and outstanding support for NQTs or RQTs and ongoing continuous, personalised, professional development.
We welcome and encourage visits to school, where you will have the opportunity to meet some of our staff, students and the Headteacher to learn a little more about our ethos, vision and journey.
Cottingham High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. This post is subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
