Teacher of English maternity cover
TEACHER OF ENGLISH: Maternity cover
Required for September 2019
(or earlier if available)
Shipston High School is a highly successful and oversubscribed 11 - 16 school in attractive rural surroundings. Class sizes are small and students are 'a credit' to the school (Ofsted 2018). We have a unique ethos; high achieving and student centred. As a result, teachers flourish at Shipston High.
We are seeking to appoint an outstanding Teacher of English to cover a maternity leave, expected to be for one academic year. This position will suit both newly qualified and experienced candidates. For the right candidate, start date can be negotiated.
This is an exciting time to be joining Shipston High School. Examination results have continued to rise, and the school achieved consistently positive progress 8 figures, with 2018 at +0.3. As a consequence of this success, Shipston High is increasingly over-subscribed.
The English Department is very successful, with 80% of pupils gaining 9 - 4 in the subject in 2018. The team are enthusiastic and supportive. The vacancy is ideal for an energetic and forward thinking teacher looking to develop their career.
The school has recently benefitted from a major project to redevelop the school site, and the English department relocated to a brand new teaching block in September 2018.
Visits to the school are welcomed and encouraged, please contact the Headteacher's Secretary on or at
