About The Role
Christ Church Academy is a Middle School for children aged 9 to 13 which has expanded over recent years because of its overwhelming popularity. As a Church of England Academy, Christian values such as trust, friendship and thankfulness help our children learn and grow in an atmosphere of support and acceptance.
Due to a colleague securing an overseas post, the Governors are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic teacher to join a hardworking, vibrant and forward thinking English Department which delivers at Key Stages 2 and 3 (Years 5 to 8).
The Academy is extremely well resourced with interactive whiteboards in all classrooms, wireless connection throughout, two modern ICT suites, library, dance drama studio and spacious learning rooms.
Applications are sought from highly motivated professionals from either a primary or secondary background. The post would also suit new entrants to the profession as well as experienced teachers, as support will be provided for the successful applicant as necessary. Applicants are asked to outline what transferable skills they have to support their ability to teach across KS2 and KS3.
The normal place of work would be Christ Church Academy. This Academy is part of ‘The Key Educational Trust’ and the Trust reserves the right to deploy the successful candidate to work at any other Academy within the Trust.
The successful candidate will be:
- A dynamic and energetic practitioner with high expectations.
- Passionate about their subject; able to inspire and motivate pupils.
- A person with excellent subject knowledge and a thorough grasp of assessment in English.
- Committed to ensuring 'no child is left behind' and someone who will always go the extra mile for their pupils
- A teacher who can support and promote the Christian ethos of our school
We will provide:
- A well-resourced, forward thinking and supportive English team
- Highly motivated and engaged pupils who display good behavior for learning
- Excellent care and support for all staff, including health care benefits
- Comprehensive induction and on-going opportunities for professional development
This is an excellent opportunity for a highly motivated, ambitious and hard working person to develop their career in a forward thinking school with excellent standards of achievement and care.
Christ Church Academy was last inspected by Ofsted in February 2017 and received an excellent report, stating that the school continues to be good. We aim to be outstanding at our next inspection.
