Teacher of English
Start date: September 2019
We are seeking to appoint an inspiring and dedicated teacher of English who has the ability to push the boundaries of Learning and Teaching. The ideal candidate will be able to operate within a dynamic and forward thinking team who are focused on developing exciting and engaging learning experiences for students across the 11-16 age range.
We are particularly proud of the dramatic improvement in GCSE results at Farnborough at August 2018. They were the best results the academy has ever had and confirm Farnborough is one of the most improved schools in Nottingham. This means more of our pupils than ever have been able to access college courses and apprenticeships at the highest level.
To succeed in this role, you will have proven skills to inspire and motivate both pupils and colleagues. You will be creative as well as inspirational and committed to your own professional development. You will be able to lead by example to make an immediate impact on the progress of pupils. Most of all you will love learning and want to recreate this in young people.
The academy has recently become part of Spencer Academies Trust, an educational charity and academy sponsor, which is committed to ensuring that every child, regardless of background, has access to an outstanding education and real choices in life. We have a successful track record of providing high quality teaching and learning which ensures improved outcomes for children and young people. The Trust mission statement reflects our vision and aim for all Trust schools. Our highly-successful network of 17 schools (8 Secondary and 9 Primary) educates students across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Nottingham City, Derby City and Leicestershire:
Spencer Academies Trust is an exceptional Trust, which provides an outstanding education for local children. Our Trust is a model of national excellence. We work collaboratively to achieve the best possible outcomes for all young people, in an environment where partnership is valued and success is celebrated. Our education delivers real life experiences for students, promotes independent enquiry and stimulates intellectual curiosity; whilst developing a strong sense of individual responsibility and a personal belief and confidence. All of our students fulfil their potential and make unparalleled progress. They are fully prepared for the next phase of their education and have unrivalled opportunities to become future leaders.
- All children have a right to a quality education regardless of background or ability, and have an entitlement to the opportunity of a secure progression route in their learning and development.
- Schools are stronger when they work in collaboration with each other, operate within a ‘family’ and are open to a true sense of partnership.
- We grow the effectiveness and sustainability of our schools by developing the people within them, and that through shared and equitable responsibility for quality and outcomes; we achieve more.
