St Paul’s Way Trust School, supported by Queen Mary University of London, is seeking to appoint an outstanding and creative Teacher of English. The post would be suitable for both an NQT and a more experienced teacher who would like to develop their skills and expertise in a well-resourced English Faculty. A particular interest in teaching KS 5 English Literature is desirable.
Working with a vibrant and highly successful faculty, you will be an outstanding classroom teacher with a passionate commitment to the progress of all students in our fully comprehensive and heavily oversubscribed school. The successful candidate will have an unwavering belief in the potential of every student. (S)he will do what it takes to ensure that students achieve their best, and will have the contagious enthusiasm for the subject which excites and motivates students.
This is an excellent career opportunity for a colleague who is passionate about the entitlement of young people to a rich and varied English curriculum. You will be joining an incredibly hard-working and efficient team, including two Lead Practitioners, a KS5 specialist, and will work under dynamic and supportive management. The English faculty is also a high performing team; last year, the faculty celebrated 100% A*-C at A level, 80% Grade 4+ for GCSE Literature, and 79% Grade 4+ at GCSE Language. The team is committed to build on this success, to continue to raise attainment and enhance provision.
