Apply for this job

I remember the teacher that assigned William Faulkner's 'The Sound and the Fury' to my Year 13 class. It electrified us, animating a series of passionate debates about its unusual style and cryptic narrative of the American South's decaying moral universe. To this day, the classmates I keep in touch with trace an ongoing love of literature to that term.

Are you an English teacher capable of inspiring your students, regardless of background? Do you intuitively understand how to help your students engage with text by creating meaningful connections between it and their real life experiences? 

If so, would you like to use those skills to help students from all backgrounds not just succeed but ignite a lifelong passion for English?

The school I'm currently recruiting achieved a +0.48 Progress 8 score last year, an astonishing success not even accounting for the higher than average number of its students from non-English speaking families. This is an opportunity to help this small, 'Good' school continue to make a real difference in the lives of its learner. 

In addition to its track-record of success, the school offers staff onsite parking. It's located ideally near public transport links. As part of a successful trust, it offers plenty of CPD and career progression opportunities. 

Please get in touch if the above interests you and you have:

  • QTS
  • Experience in UK classrooms
  • A subject relevant degree
