Do you have a love for the English Language and Literature?

Are you passionate about teaching students a subject so significant in everyday life? 

Would you like to be a part of a genuinely lovely and welcoming Academy that supports your growth? 

If you have answered yes to these questions, The Chalk Hills Academy would love to hear from you!

Due to a maternity cover, The Chalk Hills Academy have a fantastic opportunity for a passionate Teacher of English to join our delightful department. English is at the heart of everything we do; it sustains thought, development and improvement and allows us to communicate effectively to everyone around us. Therefore, we are looking for a dynamic teacher that will teach students the importance of English Language and Literature and develop their success in the subject. We are looking to recruit an excellent candidate and are willing to pay a recruitment and retention allowance for the right person who will drive attainment in the subject forward.

The successful candidate will:

  • Be able to develop, plan and deliver effective and high quality learning experiences to all students
  • Be an aspirational professional who is enthusiastic, influential and committed to working in pursuit of success for the academy and its learners.

Job specifics:

  • Start date: February Half Term, will consider other start dates
  • Salary: MPS or UPS / Additional allowance
  • Job Role: Full time

Why work for Chalk Hills Academy?

  • £30 million state of the art building with well-equipped classrooms in an Ofsted rated ‘Good’ school
  • You’ll be working alongside a collaborative, forward thinking Principal and Senior Leadership Team who are here to support and develop you
  • Great support for NQT’s including your own dedicated mentor, reduced teaching timetable and ‘Outstanding’ teacher programmes available
  • Unparalleled CPD opportunities with free courses every Thursday catered to your developmental needs
  • We recruit for attitude and train for skills with excellent opportunities for career progression in a successful and expanding Academy
  • All teaching staff receive a laptop to use whilst in employment
  • Freshly brewed coffee for staff on arrival to the academy every morning
  • Employee of the month scheme winning shopping vouchers
  • Fantastic staff benefits that make a difference to your work life balance

Here’s what Ofsted have to say: “The purposeful and caring leadership of the Principal and SLT have created a strong academy identity and a positive ethos shared by all members of the community. The strength of leadership is recognised without exception by the academy’s staff. Students’ behaviour is good, the atmosphere in lessons is calm and studious and attitudes to learning are routinely positive as students want to learn. Students are hugely proud of their academy, they wear their blazers and ties smartly, do not drop litter and look after the modern, purpose-built site impeccably. They stand without instruction when any adult enters a classroom.”

Teacher Testimonial: “Moving from Industry to Teaching was a daunting yet exciting experience; I joined Stockwood Park Academy (known as South Luton High School at the time) as an instructor to see if teaching was for me, and have never looked back! The seamless transition into education was exciting, demanding, and the best decision I made. Like many teachers, my role has evolved and I have been fortunate enough to work across the Trust in different positions.  The Trust has provided me with multiple opportunities to grow and develop.  I now work as an Assistant Principal at The Chalk Hills Academy, with a focus on The Teaching Trust, Admissions and Science. I feel extremely privileged to be working for an organisation that inspires learning, growth, confidence and creativity, and challenges students to rise to their full potential in a warm and caring environment."

Closing Date: Wednesday 15th November at 12pm     Interviews: ASAP

If you are interested in this job opportunity, please do apply today – we look forward to hearing from you!
