Head of English Specification - This Head of English Department role would suit an ambitious English Teacher/2nd in charge who is now looking to take on increased responsibility or an existing dependable Head of English Department looking for a new challenge. You will have a great team of English Teachers working within the Faculty and your own designated English assistant to alleviate some of the department's workload. Although your role will still involve classroom teaching at Key Stage 3, 4 and 5, your main focus will be on leading the department and you will be given a reduced timetable to accommodate this.

About the Head of English role - As the new Head of English, you will be given the freedom to implement your own ideas. You will reflect accurately with your English teachers through purposeful lesson observations and debriefing meetings to provide positive feedback and how best to implement improvements. Your responsibilities will include delivering engaging English lessons whilst using your exceptional organisational skills to undertake your management responsibilities. Part of your role as Head of English will include building on the strengths and addressing the weaknesses of your team by putting in place targeted and effective CPD.

The School - This well-equipped secondary school is found in Wokingham and offers pupils a brilliant education, leading to it being heavily oversubscribed. The Senior Leadership Team, parents, and governors are all incredibly excited by the recent 'Good' grade for the school and want to use this as a platform for further progress. If you have the passion to deliver high quality education and you are able to inspire Teachers and pupils alike, we would like to hear from you today!
