Weydon School is a large, ambitious and outstanding school in an unspoilt area of Surrey within easy reach of London. The Times has recently rated Weydon School 4th across the UK for 11-16 schools, and achievements in English Language and Literature are exceptional.

It has been said that we have grammar school outcomes and independent sector facilities, and our ongoing and recent successes clearly demonstrate this. In September 2016, the curriculum area moved into “The Globe”, a new multi-million-pound building complex, with every classroom in close proximity to the Learning Resource Centre.

Students are respectful and responsive and are proud to uphold the strong values of the school. Colleagues and the leadership team are highly supportive and if you join us, you will benefit from our extensive CPD programme organised in conjunction with our teaching school.

The curriculum area is a very strong and well-led team of specialist English teachers who revel in the world of Literature and Language and generate outstanding results (this year in Language, 80% achieved 5-9 and 38% 7-9; in Literature 78% achieved 5-9 and 42% 7-9).

We welcome applications from both well-qualified teachers of English and those who are at the beginning of their career. The key is that you are enthusiastic and capable of contributing to a highly effective and supportive English teaching team.
