An ‘Outstanding’ secondary school based in East Sussex are currently looking to hire a talented ‘Head of English’ on a full time, permanent basis starting after Easter.
This fantastic school is well known within the county for it’s excellent resources, high calibre of teaching and commitment to their students.
Due to expansion, an experienced ‘Head of English’ is now needed to take over their thriving department in an attempt to maintain their ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted status. The department currently consists of 9 full time teachers, and 3 part time teachers- the selected candidate will also be sorted by a ‘second in faculty’.
All students within the school are taught under the AQA curriculum for both English language and English literature. Drama is also taught within the department and the faculty organises many theatre trips, public speaking teams and other extracurricular activities. The SLT team are therefore hoping for a HOD that can lead from the front, and can use their initiative to implement their own strategies that have proven successful in the past. Due to the creative nature of the subject, the HOD will be actively encouraged to incorporate their own ‘flair’.

Requirements for the role:
- Hold QTS (Qualifed Teacher Status)
- Have experience teaching in the UK as a qualified English teacher- ideally with experience as an English teacher.
- Have the ability to maintain the schools high standards.
- Have a valid DBS registered to the DBS Update Service
