Teacher of English - Claydon High School

Full time  


Required for September 2019

‘Be the best you can be’

“You can't stop a teacher when they want to do something. They just do it.” (J. D. Salinger)

If you want to make a difference to the lives of young learners by inspiring them through the study of literature, come and join a like-minded faculty of English specialists and enthusiasts.

GCSE English results have been excellent over the last few years. In 2018 the school achieved 54% in the basics measure of English and Maths (5+) and 68% achieved a grade 5 or better in English.

We are looking for a well-qualified and enthusiastic teacher to teach English across the age and ability range and support our quest for classroom excellence through innovative and creative teaching and learning. The successful candidate will be passionate about teaching English, committed to motivating students to reach their full potential and will contribute to our whole school development and the raising of standards.

This post would be suitable for a new entrant to the profession or a colleague seeking to broaden their experience.  Claydon High School, in liaison with local providers, provide an excellent support programme for newly appointed staff.  NQTs will be paid for working in July if they are available to come into school at the end of the summer term.  We pride ourselves on our positive hardworking ethos and collegiate atmosphere. 

Claydon High School is a popular mixed comprehensive school on the outskirts of Ipswich, easily accessed from the A12 and A14. 

We look forward to hearing from you.
