Due to an increase in student numbers we’re looking to recruit talented, enthusiastic individuals to contribute to our ongoing success.
At Queen Mary’s College we understand the importance of recruiting skilled and well-qualified staff to maintain excellence in all that we do. We are committed to high-quality, innovative education and student support services and pride ourselves on our welcoming, supportive and friendly environment. We never stand still and our best keeps getting better thanks to the dedication, enthusiasm and commitment of our team.
Situated in 23 acres of leafy grounds, Queen Mary’s College is an inclusive, vibrant and high achieving sixth form college with a fantastic reputation both locally and nationally. Value added data places us in the top 10% of all A- level providers.
The English Department consists of a modern suite of classrooms with smartboard projection facilities and a workroom with computers available for staff use. Around 200 students are currently studying level 3 English courses and there are also around 200 students taking GCSE. We have an excellent record of student achievement and staff work closely together to develop teaching materials and course planning. The Department also offers a range of enrichment opportunities for students, including creative writing and support for Oxbridge applications. There are regular theatre visits and guest speakers, and students are encouraged to participate in national competitions for playwriting and poetry.
Whoever joins us as a Teacher of English will teach a timetable that could include a range of courses from the Departmental provision. Wherever possible there will be flexibility over the subjects and aspects to be taught, taking into account, your personal experience, skills and preferences. There will also be opportunities to teach across departments, although naturally this can’t always be guaranteed. In addition to your duties as a teacher, we’ll rely on you to act as a Personal Tutor – a vital role that involves motivating, monitoring, supporting and guiding students’ academic progress through the College via regular one-to-one consultations.
Our priorities are to maintain and extend our examination success and to maintain high levels of student satisfaction and achievement. We seek to ensure that we provide students with a high-quality experience of learning that is innovative, interesting and challenging and helps them acquire the skills and knowledge essential for their progression. This is an exciting opportunity for a teacher to join our outstanding team and be part of our friendly and supportive environment.
Queen Mary's College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.We particularly welcome applications from under represented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion.
