Job description

Teacher of English (Northampton)

Are you a dynamic and passionate teacher of English? If so, we want to hear from you!

Teaching Personnel are currently seeking a teacher of English on behalf of a welcoming and inclusive secondary school in the eastern area of Northampton. The school is oversubscribed and very popular within the local community - something which the principal deems is due to their academic success. Last year the school was recognised as number one in Northampton for the government's progress 8 measure and the 2018 A level results ensured they were placed amongst the top post 16 providers in the country. Rated 'Good' by Ofsted in their most recent inspection, students and staff work collaboratively to ensure these outcomes continue, and that students leave as confident, ambitious and high achieving. In the most recent inspection Ofsted confirmed that teaching in English is consistently good and outstanding at times. GCSE results continue to be excellent in this subject. In 2016, students achieved 82% A*- C in English, a 13% increase from the 2015 results. All pupils begin the AQA syllabus in year 10 and study both English Language and English Literature. The successful applicant will be teaching English lessons primarily to key stage 3 and 4, with the potential to teach up to key stage 5. The role will be full time and there is the potential for either an Easter or September start.

Ideal applicants will:

  • Be able to deliver engaging lessons to students working at a variety of different abilities
  • Be capable of managing behaviour effectively
  • Be able to track and monitor results in order to ensure pupil progress continues
  • Have outstanding subject knowledge

NQT'S and unqualified teachers are welcome to apply for this role.
