Teacher of English

Job description

  • Full time teaching position of English to Key Stages 3 & 4
  • Required to start from April 2018
  • Maternity cover
  • "The head teacher provides dynamic leadership that is well focused on school improvement. He has a clear vision of how to continually improve the school"- (Ofsted, 2016)

Teaching Personnel are working exclusively with a secondary school on the Wigan/Warrington border area to recruit an English Teacher from April 2018.

Due to an upcoming absence within the English department, the Head teacher of this rapidly improving school is seeking a teacher to join them on a long term basis starting in April 2018. This position is ideal for either a recently qualified teacher who is seeking to embed themselves within a highly supportive team or a more experienced teacher who wishes to work in a school where there are vast career development opportunities.

At Key Stage 3, the curriculum gives the students the opportunity to engage with a range of different novels, plays, poems and non-fiction texts to broaden and challenge their skills and viewpoints. Students have the opportunity to write stories, poems and play scripts, in addition to non-fiction styles, such as letters, articles and speeches. This is developed further in Key Stage 4 where the school follow the Eduqas English Language and Literature GCSE curriculum.

The school is smaller compared to most in the local area but is set to increase rapidly over the next couple of years. A recent Ofsted inspection highlighted the ambition of the Senior Leadership team and the good behaviour of the pupils. It is located on the Wigan/Warrington border which offers excellent access to the surrounding areas.

The next steps are to submit a full CV to Paul via the link below or alternatively contact the Manchester West Secondary Branch for further information.
