Secondary English Teacher Required for School in Southwark

An outstanding school in Southwark is currently looking for a creative English teacher who is committed to improving the exam results, progress, and engagement of pupils. If you’re ready for a new challenge, we’d love to hear from you.

About the role

This is a full-time role in which you will be expected to deliver well-planned lessons and strong behaviour management. The school’s vision is to develop well-rounded citizens through a balanced curriculum, and requires a dynamic teacher who can think on their feet and tailor their lessons to the needs of the pupils. The school itself is only a short commute from London city centre and therefore benefits from excellent public transport links. This is a 1 year contract starting in September 2023, however the contract has the potential of turning into a permanent contract at the school.

You will be working alongside an extremely supportive and collaborative department with a team of excellent practitioners. Teachers will also have access to the school’s internal CPD programme.
