A unique opportunity for an extraordinary Teacher of English

Are you looking to develop your teaching career in an innovative, creative and supportive environment? 

Do you want to be supported in your learning with allocated time in your timetable for CPD, as well as PPA time?  Are you passionate about the importance of continuing professional learning? 

Would you like to be part of a growing and thriving school working in brand-new, purpose built accommodation?  

Do you believe in working in partnership with families and the local community to enable children to aim high?   

Do you believe that each child’s journey of discovery should include learning life and academic skills in equal measure, preparing children to thrive in our global society?  

The Wren School does. 

The Wren School - a six form entry 11 - 18 secondary Free School that opened in West Reading in September 2015 - is planning for further growth in staff for September 2018 as our oldest students enter Year 10 and continue their GCSE studies. We pride ourselves on being a local school for the local community and our reputation is extremely positive; we are significantly oversubscribed in Year 7 next year.  Work almost complete on our permanent building, which is set within an amazing site; it will be fully operational by September 2018.  It is our ambition to create a happy and thriving school that will facilitate the growth and development of the community and we’re searching for an exceptional person who will share our vision that: 

Each child, regardless of background, will receive a world-class education and 

Be nurtured, challenged and inspired to ‘aim high’. 

Teacher of English

Working with our current teaching staff team, we are looking to appoint a subject teacher of English and welcome applications from NQTs.

Our Key Stage 3 approach is a thematic one with an intention to achieve a smooth transition from Key stage 2.  We aim to develop skills for learning alongside the knowledge that will enable our learners to ‘aim high’ at GCSE and beyond.  Embarking on Year 9 study, our students commence GCSEs in the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and Citizenship; potential option subjects deliver GCSE-style taster modules in order to facilitate option choices that commence part-way through the year.  

If our vision and ethos match your own philosophy, then we hope you will be tempted to apply by downloading a recruitment pack and completing the application form and equal opportunities monitoring form.
