 We are seeking to appoint an English teacher to cover a period of maternity leave, who will teach English to pupils across the ability range at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. This is an essential appointment for the English faculty, as well as the school.  

English is a very successful, highly regarded and forward thinking faculty within the college.  We are seeking an English teacher who is an outstanding practitioner, to join a committed team.

Brockington College converted from an 11-14 high school to an 11-16 school in September 2015 and our second cohort of Year 11 pupils took their GCSE examinations last summer (2018).    

Members of staff enjoy a range of CPD and INSET opportunities, a robust support system for NQTs, free car parking, weekly sports opportunities, interfaith prayer meetings and end of month cakes.  The school runs a wide variety of enrichment opportunities for pupils, as well as a range of residential trips, which members of staff support both near and far, from the Forest of Dean and Norfolk to Iceland, Kenya and China.
