“Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.” (Margaret Fuller)

If you want to make a difference to the lives of young learners by inspiring them through the study of literature and developing their communication skills to become confident citizens of the future, come and join a like-minded faculty of English specialists and enthusiasts.

GCSE English results have been excellent over the last three years.  We are looking for a well qualified and enthusiastic teacher of English to support the Head of Faculty in leading the team to further success.

The second in faculty will teach the subject across the age and ability range and promote classroom excellence through innovative and creative classroom practice, support of colleagues and evaluating the implementation of the curriculum.

The successful candidate will be passionate about their subject, committed to motivating students to reach their full potential and supporting whole school development and the raising of standards.  Claydon High School provides an excellent support programme for newly appointed staff. 

Claydon High School is a popular, oversubscribed and friendly comprehensive school on the outskirts of Ipswich; we are situated close to the A14 with easy transport links across Suffolk and into Essex.  We are a small school with 774 students on roll which means that there is a close working relationship with all the staff and students in the school. The close relationship between staff and students means the school is a very friendly and supportive environment to work in.  As part of the South Suffolk Learning Trust we also work closely with other schools within the MAT to achieve “excellence through collaboration”. 

We look forward to hearing from you.

Closing date:    Midday on Friday 20th May 2022

Interview date:  Tuesday 24th May 2022

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment.  This post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
