Cardinal Griffin Catholic College

Teacher of English (Full Time)

The rate of pay will be Main Pay Scale / Upper Pay Scale


The teaching of English at Cardinal Griffin Catholic College is at an exciting stage of its development.  Standards continue to rise year on year, departmental leadership is strong, there is a committed team of teachers and the curriculum has been adapted to suit the pupils' needs.  Staff at the College feedback frequently on the pleasant nature of pupils and the relative absence of behavioral problems to manage because pupils are engaged in their learning.  The College also champions staff well-being and has reviewed its directed time and calendar based on feedback from the staff about the demands of their roles.  Support for both new teachers and those at different career stages is excellent as are opportunities to grow develop and progress. 

We have a rare vacancy at present for a full-time English Teacher to join us in January 2021, applications are also accepted for April and September 2021 starts.  Governors are therefore seeking applications from suitable candidates for this role.  

It is important that the successful candidate is a good fit in our team of staff, and so they may be highly experienced or just starting out on their teaching journey, what matters to us is their passion for teaching, strength as a classroom practitioner and love of their subject area.  

The College encourages applications from those of the Catholic faith, but it is not a barrier to appointment if candidates do not have that faith background provided they support the ethos of the College.  We are extremely proud of our ethos which comes in very large part from our Jesuit Associate School membership and Catholic Diocesan heritage.  This teaches us to be grateful for the gift of teaching that we have and to be generous in using it for the good of our pupils. 

Given the current circumstances surrounding Covid19, it is likely interviews will be managed differently to our normal process and may involve a mix of online and in person (with appropriate social distancing measures) activities by arrangement with the shortlisted candidates.  

Application are welcome from NQT's for April and September 2021 start dates.

Closing date for applications with January 2021 start is 9am, 20th October 2020, for April and September start dates it is 9th November 2020, although the College reserves the right to interview as soon as it has a suitable field of candidates and so encourages early applications.  

Interviews will take place 21st to 23rd October 2020.

We welcome further discussions about the post and these can be conducted using a variety of online platforms or by telephone.  Please make contact with us to discuss this if it will be helpful to you. For more information visit our website: https://www.cardinalgriffin.org.uk/Vacancies/
