TEACHER OF ENGLISH - Maternity Leave Cover
(Temporary until January 2019 or earlier return of postholder from maternity leave)
From 1 January 2018, the Governors of Meadowhead School wish to appoint a committed and well-qualified Teacher of English to work within our enthusiastic and experienced English Faculty. We are proud of our results which for 2016-2017 included 71% of pupils achieving levels 9-4 (A*-C) in English Language and 70% of pupils achieving 9-4 in English Literature.
The successful candidate would need to be able to teach the full age and ability ranges across Key Stages 3 & 4. The potential to teach A Level English Language or Literature would be an advantage.
Applicants will need to be dedicated and ambitious and set the highest of standards for students. They will be someone who can excite and motivate young people and be committed to bringing imaginative ideas into the classroom. They will also need to support students in becoming successful and independent learners and will play a vital role in raising the attainment of our students.
This post represents an ideal opportunity for someone with experience or an NQT.
