Contract type: Full Time
Salary: MPS/UPS + TLR

We want to recruit an exceptional English teacher who can make a difference to the lives of our students. A TLR1 could be available to the right candidate.  The successful candidate will  help drive standards forward within the department and potentially across the Academy.  This will include leading CPD sessions and sharing good practice.

Gloucester Academy is a school that aims to prepare our students for the future. Our curriculum offers a balance of vocational and academic learning which is tailored towards our student’s needs. We believe that teachers should have really high expectations and we support our staff practically to do this with strong behaviour structures and clear lines of support to a leadership that is fully involved in the quality of teaching across the academy

At Gloucester Academy, we put real focus into developing every child’s ability to master English. A confidence with literacy almost guarantees academic progress in all other subjects. If a pupil cannot confidently read age-appropriate books and write with skill by the end of Year 9, they will struggle at school in the GCSE years. It is for this reason that this is a key appointment for us. The school invests a great deal of resources (excellent teachers, support from teaching assistants, pupil premium funding, full sets of reading books for each class in years 7, 8, and 9) to ensure that all children master literacy and develop a love of reading.  We are now looking for the right person who can continue to drive this forward.

At Gloucester Academy we aim to do more than just teach; we know that our impact extends far beyond the classroom. As a teacher, you are more than just an educator: you are a mentor to look up to, a beacon of knowledge, able to build confidence in young adults as they develop into the members of society of whom we can be proud. 

Our aim is to become one of the most rapidly improving schools in the country, and this is an exciting time to join us. As part of a rapidly growing White Horse Federation Multi Academy Trust, not only will you have the friendship and support of your colleagues within GA, but you will also be part of a wider network of Secondary and Primary schools across Gloucestershire, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire, led by leading educational practitioners. This means great career opportunities.
