Our English faculty’s mission is to ensure all students leave school with a secure understanding of the English literary canon; the ability to communicate confidently via written and spoken word alike; a grasp of how to respond both critically and personally to a wide range of texts, and above all having acquired a passion for reading that will extend well beyond their school years.

If your vision for teaching English is aligned with ours, please read on for details of an exciting opportunity to join our dynamic team.

We require an enthusiastic, well-qualified and highly motivated teacher of English to join our faculty who facilitate consistently outstanding results for all our students. The English faculty’s working practice is highly collaborative, which leads to the production of excellent centralised resources for colleagues to use as a basis for their class teaching materials.

The post provides an excellent opportunity for an ECT or experienced teacher.
