Royal Wootton Bassett Academy needs outstanding, motivated and dedicated teachers of English, to join our vibrant and innovative Department with outstanding results. Starting dates are from January 2017, from Easter 2017 and from June 2017.  

The ideal candidates will have superb subject knowledge and a passion for teaching English and working with Key Stage 3, GCSE and A-Level students. The successful candidate would be part of a successful and creative Department and will have opportunities to teach students from Year 7 upwards and students with SEND or on bespoke curriculum pathways. We are currently evolving our Key Stage 3 courses and Literacy development whole school. We are following the AQA English course and we run very successful English Language, English Literature, and Media Studies courses at A Level. This demonstrates our drive to provide a variety of highly academic but high quality courses, right the way through the Key Stages and we have a real desire to demonstrate meaningful progress for all students.   

The English department was confirmed as an area of excellence in our external subject review in 2011 and our Head of English is an SLE, serving North Wiltshire and beyond. The successful candidate must have a tenacious drive to achieve the very best for their students and the Academy.   Royal Wootton Bassett Academy is a very successful and very proud 11-18 school with 1,631 students on roll including 288 students in our very popular and successful Sixth Form.

Students listen attentively in lessons, and almost always respond rapidly to teachers’ instructions”.  As far as we are aware, Royal Wootton Bassett is the only school in the country to be awarded this prestigious accolade in succession.
