Teacher of English
We have an exciting opportunity for a Teacher to join our English Department in September 2020. We are seeking an individual who is enthusiastic and passionate about teaching English. Who will inspire and engage our students, someone who enjoys working with young people, who believes it is a privilege to be a part of their journey into adulthood, and who understands the challenges faced by young people growing up in today's world.
This is an exciting time to join Spen Valley High School as we build upon our many strengths and develop a truly coherent provision for our students. You will work alongside a team of highly professional & dedicated staff who are welcoming, open-minded and supportive. It is a particularly exciting time to join the school as we are undertaking a whole school review of our curriculum to ensure our students will leave us and having the confidence to ’stand shoulder to shoulder’ with any other young person, from any other background.
The successful candidate will be at the forefront of this transformational change and we are looking for someone who is creative, dynamic, and willing to embrace this challenge head on.
When joining Spen Valley you are entering a supportive environment where we pride ourselves in offering a wide range of CPD opportunities. Being a member of Red Kite Alliance, we receive support, advice and training from some of the most successful schools in Yorkshire. We encourage our staff, not only in their involvement in various activities throughout the school, to be proactive and come up with new and fresh ideas to engage and enthuse both our students and staff.
Staff Benefits include:
