Teacher of English MPS - UPS

Full time, temporary post for two terms maternity cover

(January 2020 to August 2020)

We are looking for a well-qualified and passionate teacher to join the English Department at our popular, oversubscribed school which enjoys an excellent reputation for academic success and pastoral care. Bishop Walsh is a great place to teach where children enjoy learning. We believe in leading pupils to academic excellence, spiritual development and social awareness.

The successful candidate will join a very successful English department. At KS5 English is very popular. The department runs two courses; A Level English Literature and A Level English Literature and Language with 100% pass rate, both subjects with many grades at A*, A and B. At GCSE in 2019 the school achieved 85% grades 4 – 9 in Maths and English.

It would be desirable, but not essential, if the successful candidate could offer Media to GCSE and/or A Level.

This is a unique opportunity to work within a school where students are hardworking and have a positive attitude to learning and in a English department where the teachers are experienced, knowledgeable, friendly and supportive. Applications are welcomed from non-Catholics willing to support our Catholic ethos.

Applications from well-qualified NQTs are welcomed as well as more experienced teachers. 

St John Paul II Multi Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.  All appointments are therefore subject to satisfactory DBS and Immigration Checks, together with the receipt of references and only applications submitted on the Academy’s application form will be considered. 

The school became part of The John Paul II Multi Academy, with its Catholic partner primary schools on 1 January 2014.

For further details and an application form please contact email: vacancies@sjp2.net   or follow the links on our website.

We do not accept CVs.
