We are looking for a high-quality professional that has the highest expectations of themselves and our pupils. 

If you provide high-quality teaching and have a natural enthusiasm for improving the life chances of our children, then this could be the role for you.

About the Role

We are seeking an experienced Year 6 or middle school teacher to design and deliver a bespoke curriculum to support pupils in Year 7 to catch up with their peers. This provision will be aimed at pupils who have not achieved age related expectations in reading at KS2 to improve their literacy and comprehension skills in order for them to access the full curriculum by Year 8. We would consider a part-time contract, with the opportunity to teach over three days, with flexible hours available. 

You will have your own teaching space with autonomy to create a distinctive, warm and rich learning environment.

About You

We are looking for someone who:

  • is an experienced Year 6 literacy teacher; 
  • can create a nurturing learning environment in which pupils can thrive and achieve;
  • can design a creative, engaging and topical curriculum;
  • will enable catch-up in reading and comprehension through highly effective teaching of literacy, reading and numeracy;
  • can deliver a Humanities curriculum - Geography, History and Ethics.

About Us

We are an improving school and this summer’s GCSE results were the best in our history. In addition, our growing Sixth Form is sending ever-increasing numbers of students onto prestigious universities and high-quality apprenticeships as our results improve. This is the second consecutive year of significant improvement and we are confident this upward trend will continue. We are a supportive team, committed to ensuring that our learners fulfil their potential despite any barriers they may face, and we are looking for equally passionate practitioners to join our team.

It is our goal to equip young people with the qualifications, skills and characteristics that will help them to achieve their aspirations. Our motto, ‘Be Inspired’, is demonstrated throughout our curriculum.  

Located on the outskirts of Northampton, we are situated in a great part of the country. Northampton has a £20 billion economy and sits at the heart of one of four designated Growth Areas in England, with big plans for housing and the economy. With plenty of countryside on the doorstep, it’s surprising that it’s only an hour away from London.
