The English Faculty at Allestree Woodlands School is currently led by a Faculty Director, and a Curriculum Manager.

The successful candidate may be expected to teach both English Language and English Literature to A level.

The department has a suite of eight rooms which are used to deliver lessons across Key Stages Three, Four and Five.

Feedback from our chosen exam board (AQA) has consistently praised our robust moderation process, imaginative task setting and the breadth of engaging and perceptive work we enable our students to produce. The faculty prides itself on taking a pro-active approach in continuously developing programmes of study for the GCSEs and A Levels.
