The Academy has recently been judged as ‘Good’ by Ofsted and is now working towards becoming ‘Outstanding’, as such our student population is also increasing bringing about various exciting opportunities. The Academy is based in Carlisle, and is housed within a new building with state-of-the-art facilities. There is a strong team ethos with a focus on excellent teaching and learning working on whole school strategies to drive up standards.
We are seeking to appoint a professional and talented Teacher of English.

Applicants will need to demonstrate the ability to be an effective team member, show how you have or how you will contribute strategies and resources to support this growing department and will show a thorough commitment to student learning.

Students' attitudes to learning have a decisive bearing on their attainment and progress and such attitudes are strongly influenced by what happens in the classroom. High quality teaching is at the heart of Morton Academy’s ethos and vision.
