My client is a good to outstanding Ofsted rated school that is looking for a creative and vibrant English Teacher who is able to demonstrate excellent classroom practice with an up-to-date understanding of the latest English curriculum across all of the lower key stages. The successful applicant will need to be able to demonstrate the ability to deliver fun, creative, interesting lessons designed to increase attainment and stimulate independent thought and discussion amongst different year groups.


In return you will be joining a well-stocked English department. As an English specialist you will be working in a department which has made its priority, not simply achieving high in league tables, but developing students into pleasant, well-rounded young adults. You will be teaching under the direction of a multi-skilled Head of English who will act as your mentor and your guide during your placement at the school. The English department is known for its resources, like their brand new, purpose built English suite which has proved a big hit with pupils at both GCSE and A-Level.


This large, heavily oversubscribed secondary school is found in Croydon and is located in a semi-rural area which is surrounded by local transport routes and green open spaces, making this school an attractive place of work for teachers from all around Surrey. It occupies a special position as an integral part of the local community and is one of the most popular schools in the area. Thanks to the forward-thinking approach taken by the Head Teacher, the school is always installing new facilities to further the learning of the pupils and places great importance in building strong relationships with parents. If this sounds the position for you then please submit your CV straight away to Uniform Education for immediate review.
