Framwellgate School Durham is a community that values learning and celebrates achievement. It is tolerant, ambitious, successful and innovative. We seek to shape our young people into being confident, creative and rounded individuals who have an intellectual curiosity, a rigorous approach to learning, and a strong moral compass. We wish to appoint an inspirational and highly motivated teacher of English to make a real impact in this rapidly improving school. Over the period since our last Ofsted inspection in November 2015 we have made significant progress. With solid foundations now in place, the opportunity to play a significant role in leading the school back to ‘Good’ and on to ‘Outstanding’ is both exciting and realistic.
The successful candidate will possess energy, vision and enthusiasm and believe that every young person deserves the very best education. A commitment to raising achievement, and a willingness to learn, train and develop as a teacher are all essential. We can offer you an environment where student behaviour is excellent, prior attainment levels are amongst the highest in the North-East and our students and staff are a pleasure to work with.
Framwellgate School Durham is a medium size 11-18 co-educational, non-selective secondary school within a Multi Academy Trust. There are 1,015 students on roll. The school was designated as a Science College in 2003 and converted to Academy status in 2011. In 2016 the school was awarded a grant of £2.4 million to create a purpose-built sports complex. This was opened in September 2017, making FSD a hub for sporting excellence in the region.
