Teacher of English.
Tes is currently supporting a friendly and supportive grammar school, based in Lincolnshire. The school is looking to add a Teacher of English to its progressive and supportive English Department ideally starting in September 2021.
The role will include teaching and coordinating the delivery of English at KS3, GCSE and A-level across year groups 7 to 13. You will support the Head of English to enhance provision and will get the chance to get involved with exciting project work throughout the year. Project work will include revising schemes of work and ensuring the curriculum is engaging to all learners alongside projects that support student attainment, well-being and engagement within the wider school. You’ll also lead by example, supporting learners to achieve to the best of their ability and you’ll enjoy that great feeling when your learners achieve grades beyond their dreams.
“We are an outstanding and oversubscribed mixed selective school serving Bourne, Stamford and Peterborough. There are currently 1685, students on roll including 490 in our Sixth Form. Our students are well-behaved and motivated and are taught in modern and well-resourced facilities. The school offers 240 places in Year 7. The vast majority of Year 11 students transfer into our Sixth Form where students are offered a choice of 26 A-Level subjects.
The best atmosphere, the best support, the best results
This is our purpose statement. The order of the purpose statement is deliberate; we believe that if we get the atmosphere and support right then, given our able students and committed staff, good results will follow. The atmosphere is special and cherished by us all and something that interview candidates often remark upon.
We are a large and busy school and our students are well-behaved, motivated and want to be here and their parents/carers want them to be here. Most of the students, most of the time, want to learn and enjoy lessons which are well-taught and engaging.
Each year our results are exceptional and they reflect the incredible efforts of the whole school community. It is a wonderful school in which to work.
The English Department
The Subject Leader has been in post since September 2018 and leads a happy and close-knit department of 13 colleagues. Several hold promoted posts such as Deputy Subject Leader and Coordinator posts for Key Stage 3, 4 and 5.
The Edexcel syllabus is followed for GCSE. The 2020 GCSE results were impressive and in-line with previous years: 31 (13%) students achieved a grade 9 with 122 (51%) achieving grades 9-7 in Literature. 31 (13%) students achieved a grade 9 with 126 (52.5%) achieving grades 9-7 in Language.
The AQA syllabus is followed for A-Level and both English Language and Literature attract a healthy number of Sixth Form students each year.”
The school is offering:
• A super supportive and highly visible SLT team and Headteacher;
• on-going CPD with programmes of study such as NPQML and MA in Educational Leadership
• progression support throughout the school and wider group
