You must be passionate about your subject and have the drive to maintain our superb academic results in addition to developing a thriving extra-curricular programme.  This role is suitable for an experience teacher or an NQT.

Our curriculum:

At Key Stage 3 we offer students a wide and challenging sequence of units.   In year 7 we build on the literacy skills taught at primary school, with a range of literature and language units, meaning that by the end of the year the students will have the confidence to write analytical, literary essays. Year 8 continues to develop those skills through a variety of challenging texts. In Year 9 we develop students’ wider reading and non-fiction skills in preparation for the transition to the GCSE course.

Students in Key Stage 4 currently study the AQA GCSE English Language and OCR Literature specifications which progress onto the OCR A-Level course in the Sixth from, one of the most popular A-Level subjects in the school.
