Teaching Personnel are currently recruiting on behalf of a large all boys OFSTED outstanding secondary school in Hitchin. The school is part of an academy trust providing excellent education across all subjects and they are currently looking for a part time English to join them on a permanent basis.

In 2016 the school was OFSTED graded outstanding and were commented on in the following areas;

  • Teaching is strong across the academy. Teachers' passion for their subject is palpable. This contributes to learning that intrigues and interests pupils right from the start of lessons. Whilst staff are rightly proud of their work, they value feedback and opportunities to share ideas.
  • Pupils benefit from the challenging activities that teachers prepare. These, together with probing questions and constructive advice, contribute to high achievement by pupils. This includes the most-able pupils, who excel at the academy.
  • Pupils' behaviour is exemplary. They make a significant contribution to helping others feel safe and supported. Their growth in confidence and charisma contributes to their strong employability skills. Attendance is very high.  Pupils make excellent progress across a wide range of subjects. They reach high standards. Academic, creative and sporting achievements give pupils a strong foundation for continuing education, employment and enjoyment.
  • The academy's motto, 'striving for excellence', is reflected strongly in all aspects of school life. Pupils thrive because personal development and academic excellence are promoted equally well.

The English department is currently made up of 7 full time members of staff including a drama specialist and the classrooms have fantastic resources including a set of class laptops for students to use. In the last academic year results were well above national average and this year are set to be of the same standard.

To support the study of English across the key stages, students are also offered the opportunity to attend theatre performances and workshops. Last year, a group of Year 8 students were taken to The Globe Theatre, whilst a group of Year 11 students went to see The Woman in Black as part of their GCSE English Literature course and the students also run a successful student newspaper.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone looking for a part time role in a supportive school. Teachers often comment on the supportive SLT and how nice it is to work in a school where students want to learn.
