Teacher of English
5 days left
A rare vacancy has arisen for a newly-qualified or experienced Teacher of English at this highly successful school in the picturesque riverside market town of Evesham, which is located on the edge of the Cotswolds within approximately 30 minutes of Worcester, Cheltenham and Stratford, and an hour from Birmingham.
We require a well-qualified teacher of English, who is committed to the highest standards of academic achievement and behaviour and will genuinely enjoy working with teenagers of all abilities. The post holder will be expected to teach English Language and Literature to GCSE level. The ability to teach either Film Studies, English Language or Literature to A Level would also be advantageous.
This post provides an exciting opportunity for the successful candidate to work in a large and high-performing department with supportive & caring colleagues. Our English Department is based within a superb state-of-the-art building which was completed in 2015 as part of an eight-year £8m capital investment programme, which is due to be completed early in 2021.
Prince Henry’s is a popular and over-subscribed 13-18 High School with approximately 1,300 on roll including more than 330 in one of Worcestershire’s largest Sixth Forms. The school enjoys an excellent reputation locally, and has consistently been judged outstanding by Ofsted, most recently in May 2013. Two Ofsted Survey inspections undertaken during 2014 looking at provision for the most able students, and also for alternative curriculum provision both praised the school’s ethos and its ability to deliver excellent teaching and learning to students of all abilities.
In May 2014, Prince Henry’s was awarded National Teaching School Status. Having also been accredited with SCITT status in summer 2016, the school accepted its first trainees in September 2017. The English Department is designated as a Lead Department within Worcestershire.
Potential applicants are welcome to telephone David Findlay, Head of English to discuss this post or to arrange to visit the school if they wish.
