Teacher of English

Full Time Permanent

The Governing Board is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and well-qualified teacher of English to join the Communications Faculty from September 2020.

The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic and suitably qualified teacher of English who is keen to play a proactive, collaborative role in developing the faculty further in the school. This role is primarily for teaching English at Key Stages 3 and 4; however, the department does deliver A Level English Literature and A Level Media, and the successful candidate may be asked to help teach these from September.

The successful candidate will model at least good teaching practice and will be able to engage and inspire students of all abilities both in and out of lessons. They will also be keen to contribute to the school’s extra-curricular life to enhance the opportunities available to our students. A bespoke CPD programme will be tailored to meeting their needs.

The school is in Medway, a 30-minute distance from London by road or high-speed rail link. Medway benefits from a multimillion-pound regeneration programme bringing new housing developments and facilities for its inhabitants; it also has the lowest council tax rates in Kent. St. John Fisher also offers subsidised accommodation for employees and this will be offered to the successful candidate, should they be interested.
