Wollaston School is a large, rural community school located in a village setting about 15 minutes drive from Northampton. The student intake draws on nearby villages and the towns of Earls Barton, Wellingborough, and Irchester. We have over 1400 students on roll with approximately 240 students in the Sixth Form. The school is over -subscribed. Wollaston School was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted in April 2017.

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and dynamic teacher who is able to teach English throughout the school at Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4 (or both) and A-Level; for a suitably qualified candidate. Newly qualified teachers are welcome to apply. The successful candidate will be well-qualified and have a passion for their subject. 

English is taught to all students throughout Key Stage 3; students have four 50-minute lessons each week. At GCSE, almost all students take both English Language and English Literature at GCSE. Both of these subjects are currently offered at Key Stage 5 and the faculty also offers Media Studies as an A-level subject. 

The English faculty comprises 10 full time and several part time specialist staff. The faculty is housed in a dedicated block with nine classrooms, including its own IT suite, staff base and a library resources centre that has recently been completely refurbished. The faculty has consistently produced some of the best results in Northamptonshire over the last five years, with over 80% of students achieving grade 4 in English at GCSE in 2017. In the Sixth Form, English and Media Studies have been popular subject options and several students go on to do English related courses at university each year.
