We are looking for a Teaching Assistant to support, motivate and challenge students in the English faculty.

The Brookvale Groby Learning Campus is a highly successful 11-19 educational organisation created from the integration of two schools on the same site.  Brookvale High School is an ‘outstanding’ 11-14 school and Groby Community College is a 14-19 upper school graded ‘good with outstanding features’ in its last Ofsted.  Together, the campus meets the educational needs of 1,600 students with nearly 400 at Post 16, and we became a Multi Academy trust together at the beginning of April this year. 

 We have a strong ethos of valuing everyone and achieving excellence for all.  We set very high standards for our students and ourselves, we work hard, we look after each other, and we are committed to professional learning for all staff. As a consequence the motto we use on a daily basis with our young people is work hard, be kind which we feel symbolises the culture we aim to create on campus.

The English faculty works enthusiastically and energetically in a continual effort to get the best out of all students regardless of their abilities. We organise our classes predominantly by ability whilst retaining our focus on challenging and stretching all students: we continually reappraise practice, thinking creatively about new approaches. Most recently we have focused upon how to use questions in a continually challenging way, how to develop greater independence, and develop critical thinking. All approaches and resources are shared with each other and we have regular faculty meetings to share ideas and discuss teaching and learning strategies. Meeting with students outside of class is a natural extension of our work with them.

The faculty has a long history of academic success at both GCSE and A level.  We set ambitious targets for ourselves.   Our students consistently achieve exam results which top the County league tables in both GCSEs and A Levels.

Full details of this vacancy can be found on our website - and if you would like to visit us then please contact Elaine Freeman - who will arrange this.

We look forward to hearing from you.
