Post 1:  Permanent, 1 FTE

Post 2:  Fixed Term 1 FTE

Required from: September 2022 

At St. Peter’s we are not looking forward to getting back to ‘normal’ after Covid.  Instead, we have re-imagined ways in which we can develop and improve on our existing strong foundations and reputation.  This role represents just one of a number of ways in which we will further enhance our students’ academic and pastoral experiences to developing their character to ‘live life to the full’.

St Peter’s is an oversubscribed school, known as a high performing school and nationally recognised for our approaches to character education. Our most recent Ofsted inspection (‘Good’ November 2019 and SIAMS inspection (‘Excellent’ May 2019) indicate the significant progress we have made in developing well rounded students who ‘live life to the full’.

We are seeking to appoint a permanent Specialist Teacher of English (with a possibility of teaching media) and a fixed term Specialist Teacher of English (with a possibility of teaching media) to work alongside the Lead Practitioner: English, Subject Learning Leader: English and English Team with a relentless focus in providing the very best outcomes and experiences for students in their care.

We are seeking enthusiastic and innovative English Teachers to join the English Department in St Peter's for a full time, permanent and fixed term post. This is an exciting opportunity to teach both English Language and English Literature across KS3 and 4. 

We are a committed, dynamic and interesting team, who are exploring new approaches and share ideas and resources readily to support one another. If you are committed to ensuring all students make progress in English, work well within a team and are passionate about teaching engaging lessons, then we would love to hear from you. 

The successful candidates will be enthusiastic and passionate about making a difference to the life chances of students.  They will be able to be calm under pressure, work positively with students, parents, staff and external agencies and have strong people skills and a desire to learn, sometimes in challenging situations.  In summary a great Specialist English Teacher makes a positive difference to students by helping to keep them safe and ensuring students take personal responsibility for their learning progress.

Our students make working here a real pleasure, and as such we have high expectation for both our students and ourselves.

We offer:
• a welcoming and friendly team of excellent staff
• a supportive working environment 
• students with a drive to succeed

It is important that the successful candidate is willing and has the ability to offer time and energy to our well-being programme &/or extra-curricular provision (which we believe adds significant value to our character based approaches to education and is crucial to our relational approaches, including such opportunities as Duke of Edinburgh, Sports, Arts and Ten Tors offer).

As a Church of England Aided School, in cases of equal merit preference will be given to candidates who are in sympathy with the foundation. 

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
