A rare opportunity has arisen to join our team in Warwickshire’s beautiful, medieval market town of Henley-in-Arden. Where better to teach English than in the district of Stratford-upon-Avon, at the heart of Shakespeare's county? English sits within the Faculty of English, Languages and the Arts, so you will benefit from joining a large team of supportive colleagues in a school that places a strong emphasis on the importance of the arts curriculum.

Teacher of English

We’re looking forward to reading letters of application from experienced teachers, or from newly qualified entrants to the profession; NQTs enjoy a full programme of support, or for more experienced colleagues, we are delighted to be able to offer access to National College leadership programmes through our Teaching School partnerships, including NPQML and NPQSL.

Celebrating a fourth, consecutive year of record results, teachers that are passionate about inspiring learning will thrive here – join us in our relentless pursuit of ‘Achieving Excellence Together’. In Summer 2017, the English team achieved 83.2% Grades 9-4 and 72.3% Grades 9-5, and an 'Above Average' Progress 8 for English in the top 20% of schools nationally.

Visits to our green-field site, bordered by the River Alne, are welcome (and encouraged!) so that you may see for yourself why Ofsted describe our flourishing students as, ‘…well behaved, polite and courteous’.

For an informal chat about this exciting opportunity, please contact Mrs Rachel McGhie, Head of Faculty, on 01564 792364. There's also plenty to see on our website if you're hoping to glimpse a flavour of what a special place this is to work.

Our school application form is available by clicking 'Apply Now' below or on our own website (please do not use the Warwickshire LA format); applications should be accompanied by a supporting letter of application (no more than two sides of A4).
