We are looking for a dynamic and highly motivated teacher of English who is committed to academic excellence and high classroom standards.   

At Easington Academy we have high expectations of our students and staff. We believe students have the right to expect a first class education, delivered by teachers who are committed to making learning challenging and rewarding. 

Ours is a caring community, one based on mutual respect, a school where students feel safe and supported throughout their time with us. The emphasis on good behaviour means that lessons are taught in an ordered and encouraging learning environment. Students are treated as individuals and we recognise and celebrate their different abilities. 

When our students leave us, we want them to have enjoyed their five years at Easington Academy. This means leaving with the best possible results and taking with them a store of happy memories.

In recent parental surveys, 99% of our parents said that they would recommend our school.

Teachers joining Easington Academy join us as proud members of a Trust that is seeing rapid results across the region and one that places huge importance on staff development with opportunities at all levels to progress and reach your full potential.
