Teacher of English, Maternity Cover
Kings Monkton is a successful co-educational independent school in the heart of Cardiff for children from 3-18 years old. Our vision is to give our children the future they deserve and pride ourselves on our inclusive, friendly and high achieving ethos. We offer our children small classes of 18, a caring and supportive environment, and excellent learning and teaching opportunities.
We are currently looking for an innovative and outstanding English teacher to teach Key Stage 3, GCSE and A Level. Our current English staff have developed a real passion for their subject in our pupils, inspiring many to go onto extracurricular activities such as our school newspaper; QuizLit Team; Book Club and We Are Writers. The successful candidate will join our incredibly successful English Faculty, with excellent results and extremely high standards throughout the school. The position has arisen due to the maternity cover of our current Head of Faculty. We have a team of three teachers and a full time Literacy Lead who runs our library. The position is open for newly qualified teachers onwards. However, there is an opportunity for the appropriate candidate to take over the role of Head of Faculty, for the temporary maternity cover, and this could be an excellent CPD opportunity for the right person.
Our pupils are very focused and have a high regard for learning. As such, the successful candidate must be an outstanding teacher with a passion for their subject and the ability to get the very best out of our children. There will be an opportunity to work with pupils throughout the school and a commitment to after school activities and events is essential. Applications from NQTs and experienced teachers, who possess a good quality English Degree, are welcome.
Salary : KMS1-6 £24,360-£35,525 with TLR for appropriate candidate
The interview will be based on a lesson observation; a written task; a formal panel and pupil panel interview. As such, we would welcome interested candidates to visit our school and to meet with me and the staff. Please contact me on my email if you would like to take up this offer.
As we are based in the heart of the City of Cardiff we have excellent access to all the local venues and make full use of this opportunity. If you would like to play your part in creating outstanding provision for our pupils, we would very much like to hear from you.
