Ulverston Victoria High School is an exceptional school which is defined equally by its high academic achievements and its warmth and inclusivity.  Our students and their teachers work hard, seek to achieve the very highest standards in all they do and are respectful of each other and of their community.

We wish to appoint an inspiring, innovative and creative individual to join our forward thinking English Department to teach at higher GCSE standard with the desirable ability to teach to A-Level standard. 

The English Faculty is a lively and exciting place to be with a team of ten enthusiastic and committed teachers.  This is an exciting opportunity for an exceptional and dynamic newly qualified teacher or existing practitioner to play a pivotal role in a high-performing faculty which in 2019 once again achieved the highest percentage of students achieving a grade 4 or above in South Cumbria.

The successful candidate will be clearly in tune with our values and our ethos of “children first” and be totally committed to providing an exciting and rewarding experience in English for all our students regardless of their academic ability.  This is an ideal opportunity for an NQT, who has lots of potential, to develop into an exceptional practitioner over the next few years as part of a high performing team.  

Equal consideration will be given to both experienced teachers and NQTs.  A full and appropriate induction programme is available for all NQTs.

UVHS is a brilliant place to be a student or teacher. There is a dynamic, caring atmosphere that pervades the whole school and a real desire to inspire and achieve.  The department thrives on exploring new ways of teaching and there is a real buzz of enthusiasm for the subject in the school.  English is a vital and highly valued area of study and therefore this is a key appointment for UVHS.

If you are a candidate committed to high quality teaching and learning who wants to develop your career in an exceptional school, working closely with colleagues who share that passion, then we would be pleased to hear from you.

Closing date for applications: Monday 24th February 2020 at 9.00 am.

Interviews will be held on: Friday 28th February 2020.
