We require an enthusiastic and inspiring Teacher of English. You will be able to offer English in the Prep and Senior School up to Year 11 (GCSE).  

St Edmund’s is an expanding and successful school of over 450 girls and boys aged 2 to 16. The opportunity arises due to expansion and the position is offered full-time, although substantial part-time may be considered. Early applications are encouraged.  

St Edmund’s is thriving with numbers the highest in its 144 year history. Average class sizes are small, circa fifteen pupils. In 2019 our students posted an impressive 95% A*– C pass rate. The English department posted 58% passes at A*– A in Language and 76% at A*– A in Literature as well as a 100% success rate in Literature at A*– B (for the third year running). Further general information on the school may be found on the website www.saintedmunds.co.uk 

The school was inspected by ISI in January 2014 and all academic and pastoral areas were graded “Excellent”.  Extracts included: … “pupils make a high rate of progress in relation to others of similar ability. Pupils with SEND make excellent progress and achieve as well as their peers … the progress of those identified as academically able is high”; … “small class sizes enable teachers to give pupils individual feedback and support as the lesson is progressing and helps the pupils to move their learning forward”; … “relationships amongst pupils, and between pupils and staff, are excellent with high levels of respect, understanding and regard for each other”; … “The teaching demonstrates the teacher’s secure subject knowledge, using clear learning objectives. It exhibits fun, pace and challenge and an imaginative range of methods is used to keep pupils interested and engaged”; … “Pupils’ high levels of achievement are attained largely as a result of the excellent teaching that is highly effective in promoting pupils’ rapid progress.” The full report is available via our website.  

A material change inspection by DfE in May 2015 rated the academic provision and planning for the senior years to be excellent. A Regulatory Compliance inspection took place in January 2018 and the school was found to be fully compliant in all areas.

A combined information and application form may be obtained from Richard Taylor (Deputy Head Academic) by email at rmat@saintedmunds.co.uk

Applications via TES are NOT accepted. 

Closing date: Monday 4 November, although earlier applications are encouraged.  

Applications by email are preferred and interviews will take place in early November.
