Required January or April 2019. Part time applicants will be considered.

Due to the promotion of the existing post holder, we are seeking a creative individual to help lead the English Faculty to its next stage of development. As someone whose lessons are exemplars of outstanding teaching and learning, you will have a proven track record of using your passion for English to inspire students to make the progress of which they are truly capable.

A key part of the role is to ensure that there is no teaching in the faculty which is less than outstanding, enabling you to develop your skills as a teaching and learning coach. In addition, you will take a substantial role in continually evaluating, developing, and implementing changes to the English curriculum in years 7 - 11.

IES Breckland is a school for children aged between 11 - 16 and an important part of the community in Brandon. In 2018, 68% of students achieved a grade 4 or above based on their best English grade.

Ofsted, September 2017 said "The principal has developed IES Breckland into a calm and purposeful centre of learning where pupils behave and achieve well. She and the school's other leaders are resolute in raising the aspirations of pupils." Ofsted also said that "Staff overwhelmingly praised the supportive leadership of the school, commenting upon the good professional development opportunities they have".
