One year fixed term contract
Start date 27 August 2019
We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, inspirational and motivated teacher with a passion for their subject and the ability to enthuse, engage and inspire young people across the full age and ability range. This is a tremendous opportunity for a motivated professional who is dedicated to delivering high quality lessons and extra-curricular provision for students. The ability to teach a Science subject at KS4 would be a distinct advantage.
Ashby School is a thriving, successful and over-subscribed 14-19 Academy with 1700 students on roll including 600 post-16. Conveniently located close to the M42 and M1, within easy reach of several areas of outstanding natural beauty and with the newly created national forest on the doorstep, the school is set in its own attractive grounds in the expanding market town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire. With an excellent reputation within the local community a recent Ofsted inspection found the school to be a ‘good school’ in all inspection categories.
The PE department benefits from excellent sporting facilities including its own swimming pool, fitness suite, gym, large sports hall, sports field and floodlit hard play area.
The post is suitable for either a newly qualified or more experienced teacher and will provide an outstanding opportunity to further develop your teaching skills and engage in professional development. The school has a strong reputation for the induction of newly qualified teachers and for continuing professional development for teachers at all stages of their careers.
If you have energy, drive and the potential and ambition to be outstanding we would be delighted to receive your application.
