Are you looking for an exciting and rewarding opportunity to shape and develop your career as an English Teacher? We offer an experienced, collaborative and dedicated team of colleagues, deeply committed to improving the life chances of young people.
We require an English Teacher with excellent subject knowledge who can combine academic rigour and achievement with a passion for the subject. Our students deserve to be inspired to develop a lifelong love of literature and reading, and taught to high standards of literacy and oracy that will set them up for their lives beyond school.
The post holder will be expected to teach across all key stages and complement this dynamic and forward thinking department. Our English team is collaborative and innovative, set within a school culture of professional growth, research-based practice and brave teaching. Our teachers comment that, due to our outstanding programme of ongoing professional development, they have become the best teachers they have ever been and so we are confident that joining our school presents a great opportunity for professional growth. Applications from candidates with a keen interest in pastoral work, especially current or aspiring Heads of Year, would be particularly welcomed but this should not exclude applications from English teachers who believe they can positively add value to our organisation.
At The Priory School, our Christian distinctiveness is embodied in our core values of Wisdom, Dignity, Hope and Community. Our values are enacted every day in school life both in and out of the classroom.
The Priory School has recently been inspected by Ofsted and we are delighted to have retained our status as a Good school. Inspectors recognised ‘principled and determined leadership’ by Rachel Gibb, Headteacher, and commented that ‘Staff care a great deal about pupil’s personal development and emotional well-being. Consequently, relationships between pupils and staff are very strong’. This is an opportunity for you to become a part of our established culture of mutual respect and personal growth which underpin our pedagogical approach.
If you wish to join a school that is thriving and destined for even greater things, working in an environment where your professional development and well-being are continuously supported, then we would welcome your application which should be submitted by noon on Tuesday 22 October 2019. The successful non-agency applicant will benefit from a £1000 welcome remuneration.
Interviews will take place Thursday 24 October 2019.
The Priory School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be required to undertake an enhanced level disclosure from the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS).
