Drama and English Teacher
Job location: Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire
Job title: Drama and English Teacher
Start date: September 2017
Salary: £23,547 - £34249
I am representing a Sikh Secondary School which is looking for a Drama and English Teacher to join their school team. The role would involve a teaching timetable split between the two subjects, with approximately 65-70% teaching time dedicated to Drama and the remainder teaching English. The school has cultivated a very positive environment in which students go out of their way to be exceptionally welcoming, friendly and well-behaved. The school is set in impressive grounds, with a modern build and an excellent range of new resources.
In their most recent Ofsted report, it was commented that relationships between staff and students are consistently respectful and positive. They also stated that students that are falling behind are given clear and effective support in order to improve. They are also praised for their ability to support students with SEN and for getting them to achieve at an above-average level.
Testimonials from parents have commented that they are impressed at the level of teaching at the academy, as well as the school's commitment to developing children holistically. The school offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities for students, making it a vibrant and exciting place to learn and to work. The school is also committed to the development of its staff and supporting them to become outstanding teachers. For NQTs, they offer a comprehensive programme of induction and mentoring.
The school intends to expand to offer sixth-form provision from September 2018. As a result, there will be opportunities to teach at KS5, as well as the possibility of promotion and career progression.
