An ambitious school in Hampshire with a superb range of facilities are looking for an English Teacher to join their team next year. The staff is friendly, welcoming and focused on its mission to improve the opportunities of the students in its care. They also have a strong relationship with the students, and the school as a whole has an active and empowered student council.

The school itself is expansive, but has a relatively small number of students, which contributes to lower-than-average class sizes. There is an effective range of support in place, particularly for English and Maths. The headteacher is hugely passionate about encouraging literacy and reading, and the English department have strong links with the school library, where KS3 classes regularly have lessons. With the recent GCSE curriculum changes, the school is demonstrating its commitment to success in English by moving towards having 5 lessons a week of English at GCSE.

An enthusiastic teacher of English with a passion for the subject is required to join our committed team from January 2017/April 2017. A July start is available for an NQT.

The department has a strong record of innovative teaching and is well resourced. Excellent CPD support is provided. Our well-equipped library supports literacy lessons across KS3 and KS4.

The school also has an on-site gym that is available for staff to use at an enormously discounted rate.

The school's most recent Ofsted report noted:

"The school is ambitious for their students"
"Students are enthusiastic about learning"
"The school's curriculum prepares students well for life in modern Britain"
