If the answers to these questions is ‘yes’, then Gildredge House wants to hear from you!

We are looking to appoint an exceptional candidate to the temporary position of Head of English (Maternity Cover) for our all-through free school. This is an excellent opportunity to join our school and would be ideal for an experienced Teacher of English seeking their first Subject Leadership post or for a current Head of English, looking to broaden their experience.

Our ‘Good’ Ofsted judgement (November 2018) is a strong foundation on which to build and develop the school. The challenge is to sustain and further improve through every aspect of Gildredge House as the school continues to develop.

As temporary Head of English you will join an outstanding team of inspirational teachers, where you will ensure that our students enjoy and achieve highly in their English learning. You will be an English specialist in the secondary phase. We ideally need a strong GCSE teacher as most of your teaching will be in Years 7 – 11. This is an exciting time to join our Outstanding English Department, with opportunities for professional development ranging from KS2 transition with Year 6 to inspiring our students to choose English at Sixth Form and University.

Within the English department, you will find a team who are dedicated to providing engaging,
stimulating lessons to students of all abilities, and classrooms where rapport and relationships are given the highest priority. We plan with creativity and teach with enthusiasm, ensuring that every student reaches their full potential. We aim to help students develop resilience and confidence in the face of a challenging curriculum, not only to prepare them for demanding examinations but also to foster a lifelong love of reading, writing and thinking about books.

Gildredge House offers:

  • continuity of education for boys and girls aged 4+
  • an expectation of high academic standards
  • strong discipline
  • excellent pastoral care
  • a range of extra-curricular activities
  • parent and community involvement

Our school motto: 'Aspire'

As an employee of the school, you would benefit from:

  • A two-week break in the Autumn Term, allowing for holidays to be taken out of peak season.
  • A supportive induction programme for new staff to the school.
  • Investment into your career development through appropriate, regular CPD
  • Support and mentoring by a strong Senior Leadership Team and other experienced leaders.
  • Access to a full employee assistance programme, in support of wellbeing
  • Complimentary tea and coffee in our staffroom
  • Ample on-site parking
