Teaching Personnel are currently seeking a teacher of English on behalf of a welcoming and inclusive secondary school in the eastern area of Northampton. The school is oversubscribed and very popular within the local community - something which the principal deems is due to their academic success.

Rated 'Good' by Ofsted in their most recent inspection, students and staff work collaboratively to ensure these outcomes continue, and that students leave as confident, ambitious and high achieving.

In 2016, students achieved 82% A*- C in English, a 13% increase from the 2015 results. All pupils begin the AQA syllabus in year 10 and study both English Language and English Literature.
