‘There is a culture of high expectations and ambition that is shared by staff. Everyone wants the best for the pupils’ Ofsted 2016
We are seeking to appoint an inspirational Teacher of English with a passion for accelerating progress within our English department.
Candidates must be able to teach across the ability and age range, supporting the development of English to the highest standards for all pupils at Key Stages 3 and 4.
Broadlands Academy is an 11-16 learning community and proud to be part of Academies Enterprise Trust family of schools. We are a small, mixed, fully inclusive comprehensive school taking children from ages 11 to 16 and remain one of the best choices for learning in the area. For every student who attends our Academy, we aim to raise their aspirations, broaden their horizons and promote a life-long love of learning. We are situated in extensive grounds and ideally located between Bath and Bristol. We benefit from a number of links with the local community and have an excellent reputation. Broadlands has started to develop its post 16 learning on site.
As a smaller than average school we are fortunate to be able to really get to know each and every student. Over the last 3 years we have made great strides in school improvement and we believe we are at an exciting stage of our development. Our GCSE results in 2017 were pleasing and we were delighted that a greater number of students than the national average have achieved the new ‘9’ grade (above an A* standard) in both English and Maths. An amazing 10% of students achieved over 8 GCSEs at a grade A or higher.
The ideal candidate will:
- Be passionate about English
- Bring an unwavering commitment to promoting the highest standards of teaching and learning across the department and the academy;
- Have a relentless obsession about developing their own standards of teaching and learning to enable them to deliver excellent student outcomes;
- Be a committed team player;
- Have the ability to engage and inspire pupils and build excellent relationships;
- Be passionate and ambitious about their own career development.
